Well, this is my first review so bear with me please ;)

Nose: A bit sour, very peaty, vanilla(!)

Mouth: smoke, earth, little watery at first, almost silky (a little sweet even), explodes afterwards, this really is in contrast with the nose!

Finish: chocolate, walnuts, very clean, a little bit of burnt wood ... and then it takes all the moist out of your mouth.

Conclusion: I got this whisky as a christmas gift from a friend. It's not the easiest whisky, but it certainly is a VERY good malt. Certainly considering the price...

@rowin Good first review. I don't have a bottle of Lagavulin 16 at home (probably should do) though I've tasted it with friends a few times.

Thanks for sharing.

Nice review! I love Lagavulin! The first malt I fell in love with. I bought the distiller's special edition when I was there, and I didn't like it as well. It was sherry-finished which diluted the greatness for my tastes. Just an FYI.

"Smokey and explosive!" How right you are! This was my very first intro to scotches and I liked it. However, I was handed a tumbler with a little ice in it since I was a "Scotch Virgin." Had it right before "Cadillac Fajitas", a Lobster and filet mignon version of the Mexican treat. A perfect prelude! Since then I bought a bottle, drank it neat and am always amazed at the "explosion."
