Lagavulin 16 Year Old

Lagavulin 16 Year Old


Founded on Islay’s south [Kildalton] coast and situated between Ardbeg and Laphroaig, legal distilling was started at Lagavulin in 1816 by John Johnston. Aged in oak casks for at least sixteen years, this much sought-after single malt has the massive peat-smoke that's typical of southern Islay - but also offering a dryness that turns it into a truly interesting dram.

Nose: Intensely flavoured, peat smoke with iodine and seaweed and a rich, deep sweetness. It's big, very concentrated, mature Sherry and creamy vanilla. Stunning. 

Palate: dry peat smoke fills the palate with a gentle but strong sweetness, followed by sea and salt with touches of wood. 

Finish: Long, spicy finish, figs, dates, and seaweed.
