Tasting notes for Lagavulin 16 year old

All Star!
Distillery bottling
43% a.b.v.

Deep and outstanding aromas of peat and salt. Sherry flavors at first, then an interaction of sweet and dry flavors in the palate and far into the finish. Moderate saltiness throughout. Huge peatiness but without a trace of Ardbeg-like fermentation or Laphroaig-like medicinal qualities. Fascinating tea-like flavors. Smoke, burnt chocolate, and a suggestion of spent espresso grounds far into the finish. Gigantic but dignified. One of the finest malts I have ever tasted.

Suggested for:
Long after dinner, or at bedtime
