Lagavulin 16 yr

43%

Snifter, slightly heavier splash of water

Lagavulin 16 yr is true it's region and it's name. This is a genuine scotch with rich organic flavors for which you do not need to send out a search party. It is as though all of the flavors are on a plate sitting in front of you and are easily identifiable.

Peat starts the nose, then smooth transitions to and through various sweet candy flavors. Not convenient store candy, but freshly made candy-store candies... Subtle, sweet dry flavors make up the body, and smooth transitions through a long, lingering, sweet and smokey, finish.

Nose-23: Peat, brown sugar, butterscotch, caramel

Palate-22: Malt, brown sugar, brass, hardened caramel

Finish-22: smokey tingly wave of peat, and dry oak, smoothly transitions into a long lingering taste of a smoldering fire, with hints again of butterscotch

Balance-24: flavors are long and transitions are slow; a stroll, not a sprint

Overall-91:
