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: I'm sure there are many single malts to die for in the +$100 bracket, but for my price range, under $100, this is simply the best there is, the single malt I would happily drink for all time if I could only drink one. The nose is very distinctive and can be smelled from across a room, full of peat smoke and a winey sort of Cognac. It's that deep, dark iodine note that sets Lagavulin apart from its southern Islay neighbors, and really from all single malts I've tried.
