Lagavulin 16yr Single Malt....$66.99

A much sought-after single malt with the massive peat-smoke that's typical of southern Islay - but also offering a dryness that turns it into a truly interesting dram. Lagavulin is an intense, smoky-sweet single malt with seaweed flavours and a huge finish, aged in oak casks for at least sixteen years.
STRENGTH: 43% ABV
APPEARANCE: Deep amber gold.
NOSE: Intense peat smoke with iodine and seaweed and a rich, deep sweetness.
BODY: Full
PALATE: A rich, dried fruit sweetness with clouds of smoke and strong, barley-malt flavours, warming and intense. At the back of the mouth is an explosion of peppery smoke.
FINISH: Huge, long, warming and peppery with a distinch appetising sweetness.
