  1. schengel10 scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    The Islay classic with probably the best price-performance ratio ever.
    A true "TOP Malt" - untamed, wild, and therefore he likes me better than some Distillers Edition!
    Lagavulin 16 Years = Islay in a Bottle !!!

    dark amber color (unfortunately with dye)

    - very pleasant and intensely powerful combination of smoke and sherry
    - an absolute classic and a "top malt"
    - a must for an Islay lover
    - for the then 55-60€ definitely justified and also worth it, definitely grab the offer for under 50€!, unfortunately history and due to the jump to 75-80€ I really have to think about whether he is a candidate until now stays in my whisky bar...probably no...
    • Nose
      intense peat smoke, ham smoke, iodine, salt water, sweet sherry
    • Taste
      powerful, smoky attack, lots of sherry, mouth-filling, sweet, spicy oak on the palate, very intense and powerful and, above all, an extremely aromatic overall impression
    • Finish
      elegant, long-lasting finish; salty, peaty with an extremely long smoky warm aftertaste (for minutes!)
