  1. lincolnimp scored this whisky 91 points Connoisseur

    I had 3 glasses of this last night and I think the 2018 Laga 16 is as good as ever in fact this bottle is more potent than I remember, more brine and peat and some liquorice.
    Someone I was with had a tiny sip and was almost sick and he said he could taste is for ages, well 3 glasses , possibly 4 set me up for the night that is for sure, still good value even if it is approaching £60 in some places

    Had two drams from this batch yesterday evening. I must say, still very quaffable, but quality is waning somewhat the last few years. The nose is less outspoken compared to bottlings of 10 or even 5 years ago. Also more of a dusty wood feel in the finish.
    Overall it remains easily recognisable as Lagavulin though.

    Classic dram which holds up to the test of time... never had the older versions, but this 2018 bottling is very enjoyable, a bit harsh at first, but it eases when you give it a few moments to breathe

  7. Buecherwurm scored this whisky 84 points Expert Junior

    Nose: strong phenolic, very smoky, light sherry sweetness, very full-bodied, tobacco, well-cared-for leather

    Taste: Campfire, ashen, tingling, astringent, spicy

    Finish: long, cold smoker, tobacco, leather

    Conclusion: nice smoker, but nothing for every evening
