Scott,
Not as rich as the 16, but very drinkable

Bill,
The fruit finish on this one(2018 bottling) doesn't seem to be as pronounced as the last bottle(2014) that I had, but still smooth and complex. It's a toss up as to whether this or the Aberlour a'bunadh is my current favorite whiskey.
 
David
David,
I’m not sure if I like this expression or the traditional 16 year better. Both are terrific smoky sweet explosions, but the PX cask finish adds a deep fruit flavor which comes out a lot more than in the 16 YO. Not a super long finish in my opinion, but nice and peaty nonetheless. A fantastic dram and one I will continue to savor.

Mike,
For me this is about as close to perfect as you can get. It has a sherry taste along with smoke and nicely balanced, it’s one of my go-to’s.

Perfect peaty scotch.
 
James
James,
Perfectly peet! It’s smoky on the nose and ends with a buttery finish.

Sublime peat, chocolate, honey.

Leah,
All you get is smoke. From the nose to the lingering mouth.

Ivan,
To my taste, a softer and rounder Lagavulin 16. The peat was a little bit less than the 16, with very slightly more sweetness. Side by side with the 16, this was was smoother. Definitely my new favorite.

Wow. You have to really like the taste of salted peat. I am not among these group, but wish those aficionados well. Rest assured in the confidence I am not consuming your booze.

Beautiful Smokey bite.

Fantastic.
 
Charles
Charles,
Excellent dram. Although I may prefer the standard issue 16yo over this expression. This has a bit too much sweetness and iodine that challenges the peat. I think if they sold it at 46% or higher it would be perfect.

Couldn’t be better

Perfect amount of peated and smoky. One of the best. Fills the room with aromas of the Isle of Islay.
 
Bradley
Bradley,
Little heavier than the 16 year but very good
 
Daniel
Daniel,
Good, but the 16 yr is better for the money.
 
Michael
Michael,
The sherry cuts the peat in a pleasant way...but if you love the peat of lagavulin nothing beats the classic 16 year offering.
 
Aaron
Aaron,
Absolutely stunning. You will not be let down by this dram
 
Timothy
Timothy,
I had to give this a perfect 10 because it is the first whiskey that I tried that was not a commercial whiskey. I love the smoky finish and smell.
 
Andrew
Andrew,
savoring every bit to the point where I don't want to finish the bottle because then I'll be out!

Very smooth, great flavors. One of the best scotches I've ever had.
 
Chris
Chris,
Magnificent. Every bit as delicious as the 16 but adds several dimensions of smoky goodness and has a more lasting finish. If you like the 16, you will love this.
 
Dennis
Dennis,
I love the smoky finish that last. Very smooth and amazing finish. I am very happy with this selection
 
Jeffrey
Jeffrey,
It really is the premium pick for Lagavulin bottles!

My best scotch so far. Enchantingly sweet nose and an aftertaste that lingers on...

Even sweeter than the original.

Adds some lovely extra depth to my favorite Lagavulin 16.

Fantastic whiskey. The original is a favorite and this improves on it in a few areas
 
Justin

Solid Islay scotch; the PX adds just the right bit of sweetness. I've had better, but not at this availability.

Hands down best scotch

Very smooth. In my opinion 16 yr would be considered decedent however I think this edition doubles down.
 
Melville

Love it. Less aggressive iodine than the 16

My favorite! 1993-1995
 
guest

Amazing flavours, lovely peaty taste. As a newcomer to whisky I think I have been spoiled. This beauty knocked the Ardbeg 10 years off my cemented number 1.
 
pedro
pedro,
The first kick is a downer... Too salty perhaps? However the taste when in the mouth and, specially, the aftertaste, is very good. Not worth the price, but still a good whisky.
 
guest
guest,
I prefer the regular 16y old. But this is still an excellent single malt. Rich and lasting. Warm and relatively smooth for an Islay malt.
 
guest
guest,
Two shots of this straight up is just like Viagra definitely put the fire back in our bed.
 
Brad
Brad,
Strong smoke but not too much
 
Davi
Davi,
Definitely the best ,
 
Matt

The best.
 
John
John,
This is my absolute favorite whisky. The complexity and lasting flavor of the finish always leaves me speechless for about five minutes after every sip. Lagavulin has perfected the combination of that classic Islay peat with the soft sharpness of the sherry casks.

truly a gem

Great spirit more barrel influence than in the traditional 16.
