Lagavulin 16 Years

The classic Lagavulin is kilned with a high smoke content in the malt. The stills are pear-shaped, so that all flavors can be passed on to the condensers during distillation. The Single Malt then matures in Bourbon and Sherry casks to completion.

Nosing: Peat Smoke Seaweed Malt Sherry

Taste: Peat Smoke Seaweed Malt Sherry Salt Sweet Dark Chocolate Oak Fruit

Finish: Peat Smoke Oak Malt Sweet Spices

Comment: A very complex nosing with peat smoke all along the journey. The palate was smooth and mouthwatering. The finishing is very long and complex it makes you enjoy yourself in the faint peat smoke the your own world. A very highly appreciable malt from Islay, worth the name Classic malt.
