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.

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.

Great peat taste from Port Ellen malting. Very smooth. It’s my favorite dram!
The first time I drank this whisky I was overwhelmed with the iodine taste and the peatiness of it. Personally this is one of my favorite whiskies so far. Very smoky, taste of caramel, wood, fruit and a long great stay at the palate. It's far more smooth and subtle than any Ardbeg of Laphroaig (although these have other qualities of course)
If you are new to this type of Islay whisky then it you may need to endure the first few glasses. However if you work through this your pallet will adjust and you will be left with a phenomenal whisky
Introduced to this in a tiny bar in Holland a few months ago. Smokey and peaty in equal measures makes this a real drinking pleasure (and felt it the next day). The best whisky I have ever tasted and I love my whisky.
