Whisky Reviews for Lagavulin 16-year-old
9 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 87.10 points
When panning in the glass, a beautiful, oily wreath forms. Strong, slightly phenolic smoke. Like a breakfast cereal with cereals and raisins. Somehow dark with some caramel. A sweet, maritime fruit note is added. Smoked ham is spreading.
First, the colleague comes to me only with a bit of bitter smoke. The cereal and caramel is here. Now the maritime, sweetish fruit notes come from the background. Dark red berries and dark chocolate. Oily mouthfeel.
Medium long to long with licorice and sweet wood-burning smoke.

- Still has the typical Laga profile and complexity, but lost some of the body and richness of the previous versions
- A fantastic whisky that makes you want more from the start. I always like to have a barbecue in the glass. This whisky is a peat monster that delivers much more than just peat and "stench". He is beautiful multi-faceted and strong character with a good PLV. Must have tasted, on the outside you can smoke nothing, then hands off.
sweet, strong smoke, slightly phenolic, trace of herbal liqueur with a dash of cough syrup, seaweed and beach, develops into a slightly salty ham smoked over sweet wood
strong, full, round, supple soft oiliness, sweet with light spice, smoke, earthy / peaty
long, sweet, old leather, slightly salty with dark chocolate
