A fitting tribute to a great name.

Lagavulin is one of those classic Scottish single malts every true Whisky buff has to try. The story began in 1816 on the windy island of Islay, when John Jonston and Archibald Campbell first opened the distillery. They’re famous for their extra-long, “low and slow” distillation, which produces exceptionally smooth and flavourful Whisky.

The thing with Lagavulin is, you most probably either love it or you hate it. The strong peat flavour tends to divide opinion. But we can almost guarantee - if you like your malts smoky, you’re gonna adore Lagavulin. It’s Lagavulin’s 200th anniversary this year and they’re celebrating by spreading the love.

The Lagavulin 8 Year Old 200th Anniversary definitely possesses that full-on Lagavulin taste. We would even argue it’s even peatier and more intense than the classic 16 YO flagship.

Inspiration for the bottling came from Alfred Barnard, renowned historian and Whisky explorer, who tried a similar 8 YO Lagavulin back in 1880 and described it as “exceptionally fine.” We must say, we agree with Mr. Barnard. The Whisky is matured in ex-Bourbon casks and bottled at 48% alcohol. It’s a beautiful example of the amount of depth a relatively young Whisky can achieve with master distilling and casking. Last but not least – a limited edition Lagavulin at this price point? It’s a no-brainer, really.

It was harsh and over priced for its age.

It's nice how I get the email yesterday, but it's been sold out for a while.

I am just beginning exploring Scotch Whiskey and I really enjoyed it. Smooth and lingering. Smoky and spicy. Good stuff.

AMAZING
Peter
Strong smoky/iodine flavours like the 16 but surprisingly different also. Has a more peaty flavour and a little less smooth. Interesting variation, highly recommended.

It's too young.... there's a good reason why the signiture dram is bottled at sixteen years, because it needs to be.

This has been my all time favourite since I was introduced to it by an art dealer /artist friend in Glasgow some 30 odd years ago!
