Lagavulin 16 Year Old Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Regular price $190.00 Sale price $119.97 Save $70.03
A much sought-after single malt with the massive peat-smoke that's typical of southern Islay - but also offering a dryness that turns it into a truly interesting dram. Lagavulin is an intense, smoky-sweet single malt with seaweed flavors and a huge finish, aged in oak casks for at least sixteen years.
Appearance: Deep amber gold.
Nose: Intense peat smoke with iodine and seaweed and a rich, deep sweetness.
Palate: A rich, dried fruit sweetness with clouds of smoke and strong, barley-malt flavours, warming and intense. At the back of the mouth is an explosion of peppery smoke.
Finish: Huge, long, warming and peppery with a distinct appetizing sweetness.

"Bold and intense nose of smoked seaweed, leather polish, toasted barley, and a blast of preserved lemon. On tasting the malt starts with sweet cereal grains and charred barrel before relaxing into flavors of a bonfire at the beach."

"This has been Lagavulin’s principal expression for more than 30 years. Iodine, rich peat, and caramel on the early nose, with sherry, sea salt, and charcuterie. The oily, briny palate offers peat and a medicinal note, along with black tea, Seville orange, toffee, cinnamon, and a hint of smoked fish. Peat embers and hot tar in the lengthy, spicy finish. Deeply satisfying!"

"Soy sauce, olive brine, peat, honey, oloroso Sherry, brewer's yeast, bread dough, barley malt and cigar smoke in the bouquet. The flavor that magically includes the innate intense peatiness of Islay malts and the masterly employment of oak barrels phase defines “classy Islay.” Concludes sweetly, without sacrificing the tangy, astringent peatiness that is inherent. Gorgeous."
