  1. KB201 did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    The Lagavulin classic is kilned with a high proportion of smoke in the malt. The stills at the distillery are pear-shaped, allowing all of the flavors to be transferred to the condensers during distillation. The single malt then matures to perfection in bourbon and sherry casks.

  5. pere scored this whisky 70 points Connoisseur

    Peaty, rather dry and totally burned. Close to being undrinkable.

    The ones bottled around 2000-2005 were still rather decent whiskies despite of not being as excellent as the first 16yo bottlings, but this one is really unpleasant to taste.
