  1. KB201 did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

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

    Lagavulin 16 years, 43% alc. Original bottling (2021). Ageing: Bourbon and Sherry casks

    Nose: peat and tar, pleasantly dry smoke. Behind it, in addition to citrus fruits, machine oil and a little rubber. The sweetness increases, orange marmalade next to almonds, salt water and cedar wood, a little leather can also be found.

    Palate: Intensely smoky, dry and slightly salty. Liquorice, anise and salmiak next to tar and smoker, various herbs, blood oranges. Also very light cocoa, again the orange marmalade and pickled olives.

    Finish: Land and dry, mineral and salty.

    Conclusion: Lagavulin has managed to maintain the quality for decades, even if the batches have repeatedly changed minimally over the years. Very beautiful. 86/100 points (2021).
