  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.

  4. notesofmalt scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    Lagavulin 16 years, 43% alc. Original bottling (2021). Maturation: Bourbon and sherry barrels
    Nose: peat and tar, pleasantly dry smoke. Behind it, in addition to citrus fruits, machine oil and a little rubber. The sweetness increases, orange jam next to almonds, salt water and cedarwood, and a little leather can also be found.

    Palate: Strong smoky, dry and slightly salty. Licorice, aniseed and salmiak next to tar and smoker, various herbs, blood oranges. Also very light cocoa, again the orange jam and pickled olives.

    Finish: country and dry, mineral and salty.

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