Lagavulin 16 yo
Color : clear gold.
Nose : smoke. Definitly. Quite oily like a can of anchovy. Algae.
Palate : very round, with the oil from the nose confirming its presence. The liquid fills the mouth of a light smoke . Not acre or sulfuric at all. Algaes. Seaside after a tempest, with dozens of fishes on the beach. There is peat in the back, with a bit of the malted barley.
Finish : short and spicy with sea salt. Very round thanks to the use of Sherry casks. The marine character of the distillery really exposes its presence.
Comments : what a dram this is ! It’s a classic from the classic and you should always have a bottle at home ! Well balanced, distinctive flavours, everyone knows the Laga 16.
