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.

Comment:
Before I tried this, I had been thinking Lagavulin is one of the typical intense Iodine scotch whisky. But the impression was totally different from my expectation. The drum showed great mixture with Smoke, ionine and dried tropical fruits and oranges.
Currently, this drum is one of most my favorite whisky.
