Lagavulin 16 Year Old Single Islay Malt Scotch Whiskey is a representative in the 'Classic Malts' series, a deep, dry and exceptionally peaty bruiser. One of the smokiest noses from Islay. It's big, very, very concentrated, and redolent of iodine, sweet spices, good, mature sherry and creamy vanilla. Stunning. Very thick and rich palate with a massive mouthful of malt, sherry, good fruity sweetness and hints of peat and oak. Big and powerful. Long and spicy finish with notes of figs, dates, peat smoke and vanilla. Probably the most pungent of all Islay malts, Lagavulin is not for the faint-hearted but inspires fanatical devotion in its many followers.
