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: Rauch Süße Walnuss Vanille
Immediately smoky. Not as intense as I was expecting, but welcome for it. Sweetness and vanilla. I smell walnuts in this though not many others seem to, and fennel or liquorice.

Taste: Rauch Süße Öl
Full and intense, sweet and smoky, oily mouth coating texture. some spiciness in the back of the mouth. There is a bit of fruitiness there, but you really have to go looking for it.

Finish: Rauch Pfeffer
Long and smoky, black pepper.

Comment:
I went into this not knowing what to expect. I was pleasantly surprised, the smoke is prevalent but not overpowering and the overall deep sweetness balances it out. The smoke is less medicinal and more like lapsang souchong tea (which I usually hate) but in this it definitely suits it. Good stuff.
