Released to commemorate the 200th anniversary of the founding of Lagavulin distillery by John Johnston in 1816, this eight-year-old is big and smoky, with sweet spice that becomes apparent with a drop of water. Inspired by the visit of Alfred Barnard to the distillery in the 1880s when he tried an 'exceptionally fine' eight-year-old from the distillery, this is a fitting tribute for the milestone.

    Disappointed,

    This is one of the worst single malts I have ever had and I can’t believe Lagavulin would put their name on it. It looks like white wine in the glass and the nose is bad grappa or cheap vodka.......the finish is more like screech of some alcohol mixture.....but not elegant or refined Single Malt. I don’t get the good reviews.

    It is more meaningful because it is the 200th anniversary product

    Daniel,

    This 200th anniversary 8yr old was described as 'exceptionally fine' and I can confirm that to be true. Far more rich than the 16yr, much more peat and smoke which lingers in your mouth for ages afterwards. Add a couple drops of water and it instantly becomes more sweet while opening the dram up nicely. This is a brilliant expression of Lagavulin and I would highly recommend to anyone who enjoys peated whisky. Would I buy another bottle? ABSOLUTELY.

    Rob,

    This is one of the best whiskeys I have tasted. I do prefer the peaty taste of the Islay whiskeys and especially Lagavulin than other malts but this one is above the norm. A definite treat for a Saturday evening to be sipping this exquisite whiskey.

    Matt J,

    Not bad. Not brilliant either. The colour doesn't inspire and it lacks complexity and depth. Not a Lagavulin to nurse. However, has enough of the Lagavulin character to justify the brand. Preferred the very similar 10yr old.
