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

The sophisticated, classy Islay malt

Fabulous whisky. Even better than Laphroaig. Slightly more rounded, with extra depth and complexity. Would buy it much more frequently, except Laphroaig is half the price, and for this money, it just can't compete with Uigeadail. It means I rarely get to sample it, but that does make it all the more pleasurable when I do.
Awesome tasting room on their distillery tour too. Check it out.

Always have a bottle in the cupboard

Love every drop of the bottle. Never fails to bring a smile to my face each time I settle down to A Lagavulin 16.

Top Notch

Laphroaig 10 was my "go-to" until I had a dram of the Lagavulin 16. If you're new to Scottish whisky you likely won't understand the complexity of Islay single malts. This is top-notch Islay - anyone that says otherwise doesn't get it.

Very nice drop, but not worth the extra cost

If this is the type of whisky you like (smoke, fire, an entire peat bog thrown in, but also some beautifully subtle background flavours if you seek them out), you will definitely enjoy this. As per others of this style, it is for dyed-in-the-wool whisky drinkers. Your non-whisky drinking friends will probably not enjoy it all, but it is excellent. However, having compared this side-by-side with current production Ardbeg 10 and Laphroaig 10, I am convinced it isn't worth the extra spend, and I definitely prefer both of these classic Islays to this. The Lagavulin 16 has a slightly more obvious honey-like, almost cognac-ish note, but other than that I think it is a bit one-dimensional compared with say, the Laphroaig. It could be because the Laphroaig is brighter in character, an has more floral notes that make it seem more interesting. I am still confident that, for this style of whiskey (take no prisoners, assault on the senses), the Ardbeg 10 and the Laphroaig 10 are really excellent for the price and I see no reason to deviate other than to try other fine whiskeys! Was hoping to find this amazing, but sadly it isn't - it is, however, very good whiskey, of course. For my regular excellent-but-affordable whisky, I would probably pick the Ardbeg 10 every time and can recognise it blindfolded.

Scotland in a bottle

This is exactly what Scotch should taste like. Amber in your glass then you smell the smokiness when you first sniff your pour and then taste it as it spreads over your tongue.... fabulous!

The Best.

My absolute favorite. Smoky, peaty, rich and flavorful.

An absolute delight...

I have to say on initial opening and quickly smelling the contents of the bottle I thought this was going to be a tough drink... How wrong I was. Whilst the initial medicinal notes hit you, savouring and working through the smokiness, the taste develops to sweet and complex. Just wonderful, even when finished I could sit, a just inhale the now empty glass... if you’ve ever visited a black house on the Isles you’ll know exactly what I mean.

My favourite dram. Smooth with just the right amount of peat.

Got to love it!

Its a classic....would be mindblowing at 46 percent.....but its lovely. Sweet smoky salty, all the stuff you want......Is Absolutely Hideous trolling, with ginger, try bells or any cheap brandy... with lemonade... Vodka. Enjoy

Ron Swanson approved

I'm not going to sit here and say I didn't buy this because I have a clue about it, I bought it because it's Ron Swanson from P&R's favorite drink, hey they even made a offerman edition because of him, and I'm very new into the whisky game but this tasted -a- -may- -zing-, just that perfect amount of smoke mixed with the peat and a warm taste. I definitely will be buying more and next time adding a steak with it.
