Whisky Reviews for Lagavulin 16-year-old

4 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 87.55 points

  1. Macheye scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    We expected nothing less than a totally solid classic Islay-profile dram. That's precisely what we got. Perhaps a little more drying then I remember it from times gone by, but to have this much peat attack and yet to retain balance and poise is truly commendable.
