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.

Lagavulin 16 Year Old Reviews

Tasting Notes

  • Tasting Notes by David Broom for Whisky Advocate

    Lagavulin is a classic example of how smoke isn't a blunt instrument that covers everything in a fog, but an element that works with all the flavours produced in distillation and maturation. Lagavulin isn't 'smokey,' its peat moves into a weird territory of Lapsang Souchong tea and pipe tobacco, fishboxes and kippers. It smells of laurel and light cereal, but is always sweet. The palate shows more creosote, with hints of kelp and a little touch of iodine. Complex.

    Started the year with Ardberg Ugh & 10yrs, but kept going back to Lagavulin 16, already on my 3rd bottle. Its so precious now that i have started to ration it.

    Today was the first time I tried this scotch. Inhaling deeply thru the nose, I sneezed every time. Laphroaig is my Favorite, but this is different than all others. My second Favorite for now.

    Excellent product. Clear alcohols are for rich women on diets.

    Lagavulin 16 year old used to be great malt back in 2011. Now it''s just another dull, mediocre, overpriced Islay malt. It''s very sad!

    The whisky that overcame my dislike of whisky! Up until trying a 16 year old Lagavulin in the Aultguish Inn one evening I''d never found a whisky I liked, finding them harsh and "burning". However, this is smooth and full of wonderful smoke and peat. I cannot describe how much I love this drink!

    I have tried all the Islay''s and this one comes a very close second to Ardbeg "Uigeadail"

    Phenomenal Single Malt! When it''s Islay, it''s peat! My personal favorite!
