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 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.

The king of single malts for me. Nothing else I''ve tried even comes close. Huge pungent smoky/peaty flavours up front, then tea (esp. lapsang souchong), salted caramel and dried fruit notes. Absolutely sublime.
First taste of Lagavulin 16yr was so smokey that I was quite surprised. However I fell in love with this special single malt immediately. Its deep, deep taste is just unbelievable. 10 out of 10, triple As.
When will somebody export lagavulin here in The Philippines? I just wanna sip this fantastic Scotch drink to my mouth. Heard that it tastes heavenly... I''m on white horse now temporarily...!
Lagavulin girl... She''s my lagavulin baby girl. Best spirit tasted yet, i''m blown away.
I would hear reviews about "peaty" & "smoky" whiskies and would be scared yet excited to know if I would like this type of whisky or not. This bottle was my introduction and I am by far pleased with the taste. It held my hand to understand completely now what reviewers are talking about when they speak about "smoke" and how it is such a pleasant flavor when tasting other notes in whisky. I must admit that for the quality you are getting within this price range is absolutely fantastic. I think this bottle just became a signature staple on my shelf.
Top notch all time favorite, best in price range
More than I can say.
Easily the most enjoyable single malt!
the last thing I would like to taste be fore idie
Exceptionally rich, complex and sophisticated. The peaty, smoky theme is ever present, but look for all the other subtle flavors of tobacco, caramel, charcoal and tea. There is a feeling of luxurious thickness to the liquid. The best Scotch there is when you''re in the smoky mood!
