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.

Finish: Peat SmokeSaltSpicesOak

Comment: Probably the most interesting whisky I've had so far. You can really spend some time with this one. After having Laphroaig and Ardbeg this was a nice change to pace. This is a bit more gentle and subtle compared to those.
