Whisky Reviews for Lagavulin 16-year-old
11 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 88.66 points
- 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...
- wonderfull, tickles the tongue, wel balanced. A superb whisky for it's price at least
clearly iodine (at first at least, diminishes rapidly), spicy, bit of fruit, slightly sweet (candy?), a whiff of ammonia
powerfull but smooth, liquorice (candy), ammonium chloride
liquorice, little iodine, spicy, lasting taste.
- THE BEST!!!
Sea spray, peat smoke. Stings the back of the nose.
Peaty dryness like gunpowder tea. As the palate develops, oily,
grassy, and, in particular, salty notes emerge.
Peat fire. Warming. A bear hug.
