Whisky Reviews for Lagavulin 16-year-old
47 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 88.35 points
- A full ,smooth, very firm body.
Sea spray, peat smoke. Stings the back of the nose.
Peaty dryness like gunpowder tea. As the palate develops, oily, grassy, salty notes emerge.
Peat fire. Warming.
- Use only a little water. It is 16 yers old and has a lot to tell. Not so suitable for a beginner. Not for gulping down, take your time.
Pricey. E150 color additive. But worth to try.
W/o water: obvious smoke. Waxy oils. Floral sweetness.
With water: first sweet of fresh summer flowers, shoepolish.
With water and extra time: sweetness of ripe summer fruit, banana.
Full sweet arrival. Long development of more sweet and smoke.
Mouth drying, smokey finish. Long, very long.
