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
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.

I just love this malt - yes it's not for the faint hearted - it has such a huge hug of peat it can be overpowering for some.
This is the loveliest of whiskies .Rich, sweet, smoky and the peat give a lovely touch of heather.
Ignore every 1 or 2 star review you see here. The common theme is "too smoky and that makes it terrible, switching back to my Macallan." This is not supposed to taste like Macallan. Macallan is not supposed to be incredibly smoky and briney, that's a highland scotch. Lagavulin is an Islay scotch, it's supposed to taste completely different. I appreciate both, but if you commenting "too smoky" you simply didn't do you're research and have no idea what you're talking about when it comes to scotch... That said I've tried almost everything and this is my number 1 still, so smooth, so tasty and complex, and the smoke adds just the right touch. Can drink this all day long.
The best whisky I have tried in my life. It is very hard to find in my region, so I get it when I travel.
This is exactly what I was looking for.
