    wonderfull, tickles the tongue, wel balanced. A superb whisky for it's price at least
    • Nose
      clearly iodine (at first at least, diminishes rapidly), spicy, bit of fruit, slightly sweet (candy?), a whiff of ammonia
    • Taste
      powerfull but smooth, liquorice (candy), ammonium chloride
    • Finish
      liquorice, little iodine, spicy, lasting taste.

    Aroma: Intense peat smoke with light notes of seaweed and salt, followed by deep sweetness.

    Taste: Dry peat smoke fills the palate with a gentle yet powerful sweetness, then gives way to notes of sea, salt and wood.

    Finish: Long, elegant finish. In the finish a lot of peat, salt and again seaweed.

    Color: deep amber gold

  4. HokkaidoUni scored this whisky 88 points Expert Junior

    All pipe tobacco and iodine, licorice and a bit of mint or caraway, some tarry dark brown sugar but a little vanilla on the nose in amongst the pipe smoke. Long sweet and Smokey finish, a beautiful whisky. Hard to beat in general, and never will be bested if you are on a budget! Almost not worth hoping there is something out there better.

  7. Sonett scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    A nice Lagavulin with a lot of the typical nose and taste. However taste is somewhat vague, almost weak, in comparison with other Lagavulins I tasted

    I like the profile but for me the nose and finish are okay, but it lacks power in the taste... I've tasted it alongside a Classic of Islay (no doubt it is Lagavulin) and it just destroyed the Lagavulin 16. For me the choice is easy...

    THE BEST!!!
    • Nose
      Sea spray, peat smoke. Stings the back of the nose.
    • Taste
      Peaty dryness like gunpowder tea. As the palate develops, oily,
      grassy, and, in particular, salty notes emerge.
    • Finish
      Peat fire. Warming. A bear hug.
