Whisky Reviews for Lagavulin 16-year-old

12 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 88.65 points

  1. HokkaidoUni scored this whisky 91 points Member Senior

    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.

    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...

  6. Butei scored this whisky 88 points Expert Junior

    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.
