Lagavulin 16 Year Old, the Islay representative in the 'Classic Malts' series is a deep, dry and exceptionally peaty bruiser. Probably the most pungent of all Islay malts, Lagavulin is not for the faint-hearted but inspires fanatical devotion in its many followers.
Deep amber gold.
Intensely flavoured, peat smoke with iodine and seaweed and a rich, deep sweetness.
Full, rich bodied.
Dry peat smoke fills the palate with a gentle but strong sweetness, followed by sea and salt with touches of wood.
A long, elegant peat-filled finish with lots of salt and seaweed.
