Whisky Reviews for Lagavulin 16-year-old

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 88.50 points

  1. LukeFive scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    Well balanced Autumn dram.

    Had bottle with different code
    • Nose
      Soft chimney peat ( like being in village in
      Autumn where people using coal/wood to heat houses in fireplace, with traces of someone smoking a fish in background ), smoked meat, few oysters, with ripe raisins and oranges
    • Taste
      mild chilly pepper start into soft smoke, charcuterie, light sea food bbq, and dry fruits, touch of oak, salt flakes
    • Finish
      Long smoky finish with hint of old fisherman ropes at the end

  2. KayMeertens scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    I compared it head-to-head with the 2010 version and they are surprisingly different. That one has more citrus and ash, while this one is smoother with a more creamy character. Especially the prominent caramel notes stand out in this one in comparison, which probably means that there were more sherry casks involved in this one. 
    Probably the best standard bottling there is.
    • Nose
      Caramel, peat, vanilla ice cream, citrus, cherry, apple and whipped cream.
    • Taste
      Toffee, peat, mocha, vanilla, pepper, apple and cherry.
    • Finish
      Long with peat smoke, caramel and milk chocolate.
