Lagavulin 16 Year Old Single Malt

Lagavulin 16 Year Old Single Malt 750ML      
Sku: 8435

Tasting notes
Dark intense Lagavulin (pronounced Laga-voolin after the Gaelic Laggan Mhouillin, “the hollow where the mill is”) comes from a whitewashed jumble of buildings by the sea on Islay’s rocky southern shore. Founded in 1816, this is a great Islay malt. Pungent and potent, with richly peaty, deep, smoky flavor, it has an intense, long, ambrosial finish.

Review
An old classic, but how do the newest bottlings fare? Rich, chewy, slightly oily texture. Deep peat, thick smoke, iodine, brine, charcoal, seaweed, tea (Earl Grey, Lapsang Souchong), and the aromas of a summer barbeque. Vanilla and light caramel soften the intensity, while subtle citrus fruit teases. Powerful, yet polished and seamless. After all these years, this whisky is still one of the finest standard-issue peaty, smoky whiskies! (Vol. 20, #3) - 94 points Whisky Advocate

Rating
Outstanding aromas fill the glass with smoky peat Sherry wood and sea salt; extraordinarily perfumed moderately full-bodied with a viscous mouthfeel. 99 Points Beverage Tasting Institute

Technical notes
43% alcohol

Food pairing
Works in an extraordinary way with intensely flavoured salty blue cheeses – Roquefort, Stilton, Gorgonzola and Lanark Blue. Also excellent with anchovies on toast.
