      Is this whisky overrated and overhyped? Definitely not! Lagavulin 16 is an outstanding Single Malt from Islay and a cornerstone of Scotch whisky culture. Intense peat smoke with hints of iodine and seaweed dominates the nose, combining with a soft and yet substantial sherry cask sweetness. On the palate, Lagavulin is full-bodied, peppery and deliciously sweet with dried fruits and an overwhelming blast of dry peatiness. The finish is prolonged, warming and spicy. An excellent whisky that would be even better with 46% ABV, no chill filtering and natural color.

      Nosing: Peat Smoke Sweet Walnut Vanilla
      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: Peat Smoke Sweet Oil
      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: Peat Smoke Pepper
      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.
