The 16 is My favorite! So glad to see it in stores again!
Oo da loli! This was my first introduction of islay scotch whisky region. And its was an grand introduction of the most wonderful whisky in a bottle. Quite peaty though but with a grilled steak its perfect. Thank you Lain McArthur for just about fifty two years of experience of making Lagavulin whisky so special to us all scotch whisky lovers.
Spoiler: Quite possibly my favourite Islay Scotch to date. I bought this not long into my whisky journey, partly because I wanted to see what all the Islay fuss was about and partly down to Nick Offerman. Not being able to find a sample, and spending just shy of £60 on a bottle that could well have not been to my liking was a bit of a risk, but boy did it pay off. I opened up the box, popped the cork, and took a whiff. Not only were my wallet and I relieved how much I enjoyed the smell but what a smell it was. I never knew whisky could be so savoury and inviting. The smoke and sea salt, the smell of burning leaves and being outdoors, it was incredible! I quickly poured myself a dram and sat down to savour that first sip... it lived up to the smell and then some. A rich and delicious taste of smoke and caramel, with some fruity sweetness and a cool finish that lingers. Would recommend this to anyone who likes a refined drink with a punch. Can't wait to try more if their range!
Pendant les fêtes de fin d'année j'ai ouvert une bouteille de Lagavulin que j'avais achetée il y a quelques mois dans un supermarché français. Certes, ce n'est pas un mauvais whisky, mais il n'est plus que l'ombre du colosse qu'il était encore il y a dix ou vingt ans. Lagavulin n'est d'ailleurs pas un cas isolé. Des whiskies tels que Talisker, Highland Park ou Macallan, qui étaient de pures merveilles, ont perdu aussi une grande partie de leur caractère. La qualité baisse tandis que la production explose, sans parler du prix... Pour revenir à Lagavulin, il est devenu assez fin et léger, sans doute pour plaire à un plus large public. La richesse gustative s'est estompée. Le rapport qualité-prix est moyen, voire médiocre. Mieux vaut se tourner vers Ardbeg, Caol Ila ou Laphroaig, qui ont conservé une certaine authenticité et sont moins chers.
If you like smoke and peat as the leading character in your whiskey then you will enjoy this. It’s so smooth as advertised, but plenty of warmth. Think bonfires, caramel flavors with a variation of iodine and dark chocolate depending on how close you bring your nose to the glass. It’s not cheap but if savored and looked after it should be cherished with every last drop. Enjoy.
