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 SmokeSherryGreen AppleAnise - Also a smell between lemon and orange hard candy.

Taste: Peat SmokeDried FruitLemonSweet

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.

Nosing: Strong aromas predominantly smoke, peat smoke

Taste: Bonfire!

Finish: Powerful yet smooth and long lasting

Comment: You either love it or hate it, no fence sitting here. When you have it for the first time, you must at least reserve judgement until after the 3rd glass, at that point you hopefully become life long friends.
