Lagavulin Islay Single Malt 16 Years Review

One of the finest whiskies from the Scottish Isle of Islay, Lagavulin 16 Years is a flag bearer peated single malt. While earth and smoke define this whisky, those signature characteristics of the style are well incorporated from start to finish. Among the haze of smoke, there’s an attractive fruity character, notes of light caramel and vanilla, and a spray of salty seawater. Prickly spice lingers on a contemplative finish, during which point you will surely find yourself considering whether it’s time to explore more peated single malt offerings and other bottles from this producer. (It is.)
