I'm already a great fan of Lagavulin 16, but I'm also a sucker for Sherry Bombs. Put the two together and wham bam thank you ma'm! The only thing that could be better would be cask strength.

Nose: smoke, iodine, slight sweetness Palate: sweet and smoke in balance 85-90

See, for me, the sherry finish stomps on the greatness that is classic Lagavulin. It should be edible peat, not sweet.

If I could only drink one whisky... This would be it! The nose reminds me of walking into a great Steakhouse that cooks over a wood fire. Simply Awesome!

I was unable to find the 1991, but I can get the 1993 Distiller's Edition. Has anybody tried this one? Is it comparable to th '91?
