  1. Kovalyoff scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    87. Good balance.
    Nose: sweet smoke, dark chocolate, tobacco
    Taste: wood, raisins, cherry in alcohol
    Finish: long, warm, raisin roll, caramel

  2. Tom na Gruagaich scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    Very sweet, a lot of smoke, which is ironed out by the sherry fruit but almost too much.

  3. Falnor scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    A great smoky dram that becomes more with the warming effect of the sweet PX sherry, Still a little bit more body was very welcome.

  4. lachaineduwhisky did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Smoke and leather are quickly overtaken by a sherry not too opulent (I have the impression that it is typical of Pedro Ximenez who does not "dripping" like the Oloroso, he knows how to stand!). Hot and deep. Dry dark chocolate. On the palate, peat obviously. Thick, fleshy, rich, dense. The 16 years ended in sherry what! Sweet spices in the mouth that turns into chilli in the finish. The sherry is subtle, it does not dominate the dram. Enthusiasm 4/5

  9. Gloin scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    Heavy smoke, intense and very sweet with a clear sherry note. Absolute tip. I needed some time to fully develop it

  10. Rustamich did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    As good a Lagavulin as I've tasted. Hie thee to Islay!
    • Nose
      Immediate complex phenolics: dried crab shells, rock pools, wet seaweed, Dutch salted liquorice, woodsmoke, chili, barbecued peppers and in time engine oil.
    • Taste
      The oily quality coats the tongue. Not just about the smoke but a welling up of languorous, rich fruits which mix with shore, violet, laurel (bog myrtle) Ever-changing.
    • Finish
      Ripe, long and complex.
