Lagavulin 16 continues to be my go-to when I'm in the mood for good Islay whisky. Velvety smooth with a peaty smokiness that is just right - not to strong, not too light. The "Goldilocks" of Islay Scotch Whisky.

Lagavulin 16 Year Old Islay
94 points- Whisky Advocate
"An old classic, but how do the newest bottlings fare? Rich, chewy, slightly oily texture. Deep peat, thick smoke, iodine, brine, charcoal, seaweed, tea (Earl Grey, Lapsang Souchong), and the aromas of a summer barbeque. Vanilla and light caramel soften the intensity, while subtle citrus fruit teases. Powerful, yet polished and seamless. After all these years, this whisky is still one of the finest standard-issue peaty, smoky whiskies!"
90-95 points: Wine Enthusiast
"Soy sauce, olive brine, peat, honey, oloroso Sherry, brewer’s yeast, bread dough, barley malt and cigar smoke in the bouquet. The flavor that magically includes the innate intense peatiness of Islay malts and the masterly employment of oak barrels phase defines “classy Islay.” Concludes sweetly, without sacrificing the tangy, astringent peatiness that is inherent. Gorgeous."
