Sorry about this...

We can't actually ship Lagavulin 16 Year Old to the United States at the moment (although we're working hard to fix that).

In the meantime, our friends over at The Whisky Shop might be able to help you out.

Thank you for your support and understanding 🙂

Lagavulin 16 Year Old Bottling Note

A much sought-after single malt Scotch whisky with the massive peat-smoke that's typical of southern Islay - but also offering richness and a dryness that turns it into a truly interesting tipple. The 16 year old has truly become a benchmark Islay dram from the Lagavulin distillery.

If you're looking for a food pairing for this beauty, try intensely flavoured salty blue cheeses, which complement the intense, peat rich, sweet and salty character of this Lagavulin wonderfully.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: More like Lapsang Souchong tea than Lapsang Souchong! One of the smokiest noses from Islay. It's big, very, very concentrated, and redolent of iodine, sweet spices, good, mature Sherry and creamy vanilla. Stunning.

Palate: Very thick and rich. A massive mouthful of malt and Sherry with good fruity sweetness, but also a wonderful sweetness. Big, powerful peat and oak.

Finish: Long, spicy finish, figs, dates, peat smoke, vanilla.

Lagavulin 16 Year Old Reviews

Literary whiskey

Hey. Have no idea what Lagavulin 16 yo tastes like. But I do like a peaty whiskey. I ran across a reference to Lagavulin in a crime thriller I’m reading and hit LOOK UP on my iPad, because I didn’t recognize the reference, and here I am!

Où est le Lagavulin d'antan ?

J'ai goûté pendant les fêtes une bouteille de Lagavulin 16 ans que j'avais achetée il y a quelques mois. Certes, ce n'est pas un mauvais whisky, mais il n'est plus que l'ombre du colosse qu'il était encore il y a dix ou vingt ans. Lagavulin n'est d'ailleurs pas un cas isolé. Des whiskies tels que Talisker, Highland Park ou Macallan, qui étaient de pures délices, ont perdu leur caractère au fil des ans. La qualité baisse tandis que la production explose, sans parler du prix... Pour revenir à Lagavulin, il est devenu assez fin et léger. La richesse gustative s'est estompée et le rapport qualité-prix est médiocre. Il vaut mieux se tourner vers Ardbeg, Caol Ila ou Laphroaig qui eux ont conservé une certaine authenticité et sont moins chers.

Loved it!

The peat is just right, strong but not overpowering. The finish is smooth and subtle; sweet, fruity and delicious.

Best single malt

Best single malt, not easily found in Mexico, but every time I offer a glass to a friend a new fan is created

L.O.V.E. I.T!

The best whisky I have ever tasted and I've tasted loads, all this talk of it not being what it was, well all I can ask is, did it grant eternal life before? because the taste is blissful.

One of my favourites

Absolute stunner - im told not like it used to be but i have no benchmark for that - as it is now im happy to have this even though i feel its over priced really

Not what it once was....

I remember my first tasting of Lagavulin 16 like it was yesterday. Absolutely blew my mind. Earthy, rich, organic. But that's in the past. This whisky has changed beyond recognition unfortunately. Recent bottlings are a shadow of it's former self. Harsh, bitter and even the smoke and peatiness has subsided. Stick to Ardbeg folks for authentic peated scotch. The King has been dethroned.

A fantastic single malt, worth the cost if you can find it.

My favorite Islay single malt, with intense smoky peat, an appealing salty character overlaying concentrated citrus and spicy fresh-baked snacking cake aromas. A unique and special experience and a benchmark single malt in its style.

Excellent as always

Wonderful as the hotel is selling it at normal standard malts. Lubbly jubbly
