This has what the 16 has, just without the smooth and balanced character you get with the double age statement. It’s also a little higher abv, which could add to that, but I dont get as much of the nuance at all. Its spikier, and little brighter, and I lose the creaminess, oakiness, and honey notes I get with the 16

4.0 out of 5 stars
Surprisingly light compared to other Lagavulin’s I’ve tasted, but that certainly does not make it lesser of a whiskey. Lemony with shellfish, fresh stone fruits, light medicinal peat and beach bonfire notes. Delicious and crushable.
Beautifully smokey nose with delicate floral notes lingering amidst the haze.
Campfire smoke and vanilla explode onto the palate with soft wood and spice notes along for the ride.
An absolute treat of a scotch and one I'm glad to have picked up.
These higher, 92+, proof, non-chill filtered peaty scotches are absolutely superb and Lagavulin 8 is no exception. A winner through and through!
