Lagavulin 16yr Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Aged in oak casks for at least sixteen years, this much sought-after single malt
has the massive peat-smoke that's typical of southern Islay - but also offering a dryness that turns it into a truly interesting dram.
Region: A roaring bonfire from the coast of Islay.
Appearance: Deep amber gold.
Nose: Intensely flavoured, peat smoke with iodine and seaweed and a rich, deep sweetness.
Body: Full, rich bodied.
Palate: Dry peat smoke fills the palate with a gentle but strong sweetness, followed by sea and salt with touches of wood.
Finish: A long, elegant peat-filled finish with lots of salt and seaweed.
