Lagavulin 16 Yr Distillers Edition Single Malt Scotch 2012
Had this during a trip in Brussels. I went back instantly to survivalsessions years ago in the Belgian woods. Smokey, peaty, lots of flavors are battling to be recognized, smoothand impressive. Not everbody's friend I guess but it seems I'm a sucker for the Islay's whiskys..
External Reviews for Lagavulin 16 Yr Distillers Edition Single Malt Scotch
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.
Powerful, peat-smoke aroma. Robustly full bodied, well-balanced and smooth with a slight sweetness on the palate.
Deep golden amber. Outstanding aromas fill the glass with smoky peat, Sherry wood and sea salt. Extraordinarily perfumed. Moderately full-bodied with a viscous mouthfeel. A sweet Sherry note on entry and complex dry peaty flavors lingering on the finish. A sumptuous combination of luxurious mouthfeel and assertive flavors and aromas.(tastings.com)
Full amber in color with adominant sherry nose. Full-bodied yet smooth. The dryness is offset by the sweetness of the sherry character. Salty notes and a huge powerful peaty finish.
Double Gold San Francisco Spirits Competition. Rich on the palate with hints of sherry, the finish is long and smooth.
