I finished a bottle of Lagavulin 8, I like it better than the 16. Lately testing Deanston 12, and Virgin Oak. I guess depending on how the palate is in the middle of the day, or at night, I do not know, but I find the 12 years with an aftertaste of burnt plastic, or that characteristic smell of cloves. And the virgin oak is a bit sweeter, fresher and younger, the flavor is intense and long. But I really like them both. Both have a very tasty taste, intense and long, with that aftertaste of green apples. And on top, they do not put coloring, so the color is the original whisky.
