Lagavulin 16 Year Old Whisky 70cl
Much awarded, Lagavulin 16 Year Old is the definitive Islay malt for many, and the perfect dram for even the most discerning whisky palate. Since 1816, Lagavulin Single Malt Scotch Whisky has been made in a picturesque huddle of buildings on Lagavulin Bay.
Perhaps the most beautifully situated of distilleries, Lagavulin makes arguably the most intensely flavoured, smoky and rich whisky of all. Lagavulin is an intense, smoky-sweet single malt with seaweed flavours and a huge finish, aged in oak casks for at least sixteen years.
The Mighty Islay Malt
Lagavulin is the biggest, richest and most intensely flavoured of our Islay Single Malt Scotch Whiskies. An ‘essential’ Scotch Whisky that any connoisseur or enthusiast must have in their collection; one of the world’s favourite Malt Whiskies.
Situated beside the sea in a rocky bay overlooked by ruined Dunyvaig Castle, Lagavulin distillery has arguably the most romantic setting of any in Scotland. Lagavulin is a name derived from the Gaelic Laggan Mhouillin - ‘hollow where the milll is’.
“Time takes out the fire but leaves in the warmth” – describes the rounding effect of long 16 years maturation on the Lagavulin liquid.
Nose: Intense peat smoke with iodine and seaweed and a rich, deep sweetness.
Palate: A rich, dried fruit sweetness with clouds of smoke and strong, barley-malt flavours, warming and intense. At the back of the mouth is an explosion of peppery smoke.
Finish: Huge, long, warming and peppery with a distinch appetising sweetness.
Suggested Serve and Food Match
The intense peaty aromas, rich smoky taste & intensity of Lagavulin 16 Year Old Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky are best enjoyed from a traditional whisky glass, neat or with a little still water.
Lagavulin 16 is brilliant with blue cheese. The character of Lagavulin - intense, peat rich, sweet and salty - works in an extraordinary way with intensely flavoured salty blue cheeses. For example, Roquefort, Stilton, aged Gorgonzola, Lanark blue. Also excellent with anchovies on toast or oysters too - fantastic!

When drinking the 1st sip is of bitter lemons with a hint of fudge. However let it slide down and think of that as the head!
The 2nd and subsequent sips are altogether different. The fudge and dark mellow flavours come through in abundance with no hint of the the bitterness of the 1st sip. And so it will go on like this till your session has ended. Each sip seems to increase the complexity. Once finished after a few minutes I was left with a clean almost green grass taste at the back of my palette fading to and almost vague and tantalising notes of sea air.
As this was from my wife for our anniversary I can only comment on the hard work she put into to finding me what is now in my top 3 which varies depending on my mood.
Whisky tasting in general is not to be rushed and in my humblest of opinions never judge a whisky by the 1st sip alone. Even after 20+ years of drinking it I like to think of it like getting into a hot bath. You know your going the go through the ouch stage but once immersed you just don't want to get out!
This one is definitely worth soaking in!!
Despite the taste I described, it is smooth and I think it has a wonderful warm aroma.
I like it, but it's not going to be for everyone I feel.
Next stop 21year old!
I adore a strong smokey aroma in Islay malts, but I don't find it to be as heavy in Lagavulin as I do in Laphroaig, but I am not saying that as a bad thing, I would still favour Lagavulin over Laphroaig.
