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


Very first whisky I fell in love....smooth peaty late night smoky jazz whisky..divine

2nd March 2021

nice, very strong medicinal smoke and char

Nice whisky, quite peaty but is a bit strong on the char.

It has some interesting medicinal notes, kind of like a strong Lapsang Suchong or bamboo charcoal Hae cha.

For me personally I would use this to mix with some soda or tonic for a smokey drink.
Would be great in smokey, medicinal cocktails and mixers.

Not sure how often I would drink neat, even though I like peat, the char is a little too much, but still nice.

4stars because although it is a very nice medicinal tasting whisky the char notes are a bit strong for me to sip on a regular......If the char was dialed back just slightly, allowing the rest of the whisky to come to the forefront then this would be a 5 star.

It tastes of smoke, we all know it. Very hard to drink ... you might enjoy it if you are a smoker and or firefighter.

Bad aftertaste

The charcoal after taste is huge disappointment. I really can’t see buying this again

All time favourite

Full of peat but it works perfectly with the vanilla and other sweet notes. This is the scotch that turned me on to Islay; can never go back! My “desert island” single malt

Absolutely amazing! Peat smoke in the forefront, wave after wave, but somehow does not block the other absolutely stunning flavours. Wow!
