    The taste
    Smoke, spicy, sugar, not so complex, ginger spiciness

    finish

    Have the newer bottlings really gotten that bad?

  4. notesofmalt scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    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).
