Lagavulin 16 Years Old Single Malt Islay Whisky

Lagavulin 16 Years Old Single Malt Islay Whisky


Lagavulin 16 Year Old is one of the now 13 ‘Classic Malts’ and is the standard expression for the distillery. The 16 year old is matured mostly in ex-bourbon American White Oak casks, but is finished in ex-sherry European Oak casks. The long distillation and maturation processes assist with the characteristics and complexity that can be found in this wonderful Islay malt.

Lagavulin 16 Tasting Notes By Jim Murray

Nose: Massive peat. Ultra-intense iodine carries a shade more spice than of old. The fruity-sherry notes are clean, vanilla is much deeper. Beautifully layered.
Palate: Peat so thick you could stand a spoon in it. Chewy iodine bolstered by sherry and big oak.
Finish: A little spice lightens the grip of the peat and vanilla. Dries off with malt, dried dates…and iodine.
Comment: A true classic in every sense that offers breathtaking depth.

    Tasting Note by The Master of Malt
    Nose: More like Lapsang Souchong tea than Lapsang Souchong! One of the smokiest noses from Islay. It’s big, very, very concentrated, and redolent of iodine, sweet spices, good, mature sherry and creamy vanilla. Stunning.
    Palate: Very thick and rich. A massive mouthful of malt and sherry with good fruity sweetness, but also a wonderful sweetness. Big, powerful peat and oak.
    Finish: Long, spicy finish, figs, dates, peat smoke, vanilla.

    Tasting Notes By Michael Jackson Of Whisky Magazine
    Nose: Lapsang Souchong and fruity sherry.
    Palate: The dryness is at first offset by the sweetness of the sherry character. As the palate develops, oily, grassy, and, in particular, salty notes emerge in a long, sustained, aggressive, attack.
    Finish: A huge, powerful, bear-hug of peat.
    Comment:The driest of Islay malts, and an established classic.

    Official Tasting Notes By Lagavulin
    Appearance: Deep amber
    Nose: A typically full-on Lagavulin nose that also shows great finesse, with less ripe fruit than earlier bottlings. Bergamot scented wood-smoke surrounds a sophisticated complex of sweeter aromas; smooth and creamy toffee sauce on digestive biscuits with shavings of milk chocolate. Later, appetising lemon and white pepper notes. With water, the aromas embrace toasted cereal and take on a roasted, nutty quality but the fragrant smoke always returns.
    Body: Medium
    Palate: Dusty, very sweet, then positively smoky, as with roasted chestnuts from a street vendor on a winter’s morning; Or a real-wood fired pizza with fresh pesto and pine kernels. Leaves the tongue tingling. Cleaner with water, which brings a smooth mouth feel and sophisticated smoke.
    Finish: Long and smoky, with large amounts of exquisite smoke and a fragrant smoky aftertaste. Toasted sesame seeds and basil. Water brings out Indian spices (roasted cumin).
