Lagavulin 16 Year Single Malt Scotch Islay NV

Winemaker's Notes:

A much sought-after single malt with the massive peat-smoke that's typical of southern Islay - but also offering a dryness that turns it into a truly interesting dram. Deep amber gold Intense peat smoke with iodine and seaweed and a rich, deep sweetness. Full, rich. Dry peat smoke fills the palate with a gentle but strong sweetness, followed by sea and salt with touches of wood.A long, elegant peat-filled finish with lots of salt and seaweed.

Michael Jackson?s notes `Nose: Lapsang Souchong and fruity sherry. Palate:The dryness is at first offset by the sweetness of the sherry character. As the palate develops oily grassy and in particular salty notes emerge in a long sustained aggressive attack. Finish: A huge powerful bear-hug of peat. The driest of Islay malts and an established classic.`

The 16-year-old Lagavulin is smoky and peaty with some fruit flavors. It is full-bodied yet very balanced by spice and herbal notes.
