Have already tasted a few vintages from the 12-year-old, all of which I taste great, especially the 2015er. The 8-year-old Lagavulin does not reach the complexity of the 12 CS, but I find the price-performance ratio better here. An excellent whisky, especially for lovers of young, wild smokers. Smoky, leathery, fruity, dry. Clear and pure, 100% Lagavulin. I personally like him better than the 16 Lagavulin or the DE, my favorite remains the 12er. Nice that tastes are different!
