Lagavulin 16 Year Old has a deep amber gold colour. The nose is full of intense aromas, peat smoke with iodine and seaweed and a rich, deep sweetness. This is a full, rich bodied whisky. Flavours of dry peat smoke fill the palate with a gentle but strong sweetness, followed by sea and salt with touches of wood. There is a long, elegant peat-filled finish with lots of salt and seaweed.
Describing Lagavulin 16 Year Old as a roaring bonfire from the coast of Islay, describes the sensations you feel when enjoying a dram of this comforting yet challenging whisky. Lagavulin's mighty flavours are delicious when combined with Gorgonzola, Roquefort or Stilton – or any other aged blue cheese.
