  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.
    • Nose
      Intense peat and vanilla. A raisin sweetness keeps the smoke at bay. Iodized peat and crispy roasted malt.
    • Taste
      Sweet and delicious, grassy malt notes then peat attacks, smoke fills the mouth. Selectively very salty seaweed, coffee and vanilla with fruit.
    • Finish
      Incredibly long, even for an Islay. Fruit, peat and long-lasting oak.
