Whisky Reviews for Lagavulin 08-year-old

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 84.82 points

  1. Stefan_Hartl scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    The malt shows Lagavulin in its purest form. The barrel hasn't left many impressions here yet. Overall young and very simple, but with clearly defined aromas. The phenolic smoke aromas harmonize wonderfully with the fresh citrus fruits.
    • Nose
      Even when pouring, there is a strong iodine odor throughout the room. In the nose there is also a lot of this medicinal smoke, along with fresh lemons and some bacon. This is later joined by pears and a mineral-salty seaweed note. Overall a very nice nose.
    • Taste
      Very oily and mild on the tongue with citrus fruits, green apples and a hint of berries. Then there is a slight sharpness, which is probably due to the increased alcohol content.
    • Finish
      First vanilla and cotton candy, which are soon replaced by a long-lasting campfire note. Very dry, no trace of oak spice or bitterness from the barrel.
