Producer Diageo Age 16 Year Old Bottle Size 70cl Alc. Volume 43% Bottler Official Region Islay
Lagavulin 16 is probably one of the best official bottlings of Islay Whisky. Consistently great throughout the years, we reckon most of our staff have owned a bottle at one time or another. Heavily peated spirit, that has been aged for 16 years in oak casks. They say Johnnie Depp buys a dram just for the aroma (he's teetotal) and Ron Swanson (if you watch lots of tv, you'll know him) calls it "mothers milk". Their distillation produces a robust spirit, which combined with the smoke, produces a complex dram known for its Lapsang Souchong aroma.

Staff Tasting Notes
A real stunner. A complex nose with great depth. Aromas of antiseptic ointment, hot wax, rubber bands and toffee. Once it opens in the glass, meatiness and bbq sauce. A sweet, creamy palate, with a bit of peat to follow.
