"Blasting from the glass, this malt’s nose shows intense notes of cured lemon, sea spray, orange liqueur, barley cookie, and dark cocoa. The palate echoes these flavors and adds a warming wisp of peat smoke to the formidable mix."

"Peatheads the world over love Lagavulin for its sweet, subtle character and enduringly affordable price point. At a time when some NAS malts of more dubious quality are going for much more money, Lagavulin remains consistent, classic, and true to itself: a whisky you can always count on."
