Wine Enthusiast 90 points - Soy sauce, olive brine, peat, honey, oloroso Sherry, brewers 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. - P.P. (4/1/2004) - 90-95.June/2006
Ultimate Beverage Challenge 92 points - Bold aromas of peat smoke and chimney soot marry with vanilla cake and citrus oil to make an incredibly complex and inviting nose. The palate is lightly honeyed, but ultimately gives way to the aggressive but delicious flavors of campfire and crushed seashell..March/2017
Other 92 points - Lagavulin is a classic example of how smoke isn’t a blunt instrument that covers everything in a fog, but an element that works with all the flavors produced in distillation and maturation. Lagavulin isn’t ‘smoky,’ its peat moves into a weird territory of Lapsang Souchong tea and pipe tobacco, fishboxes and kippers. It smells of laurel and light cereal, but is always sweet. The palate shows more creosote, with hints of kelp and a little touch of iodine. Complex. - Dave Broom.August/2012
Whisky Advocate 92 points - 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..August/2017

A Lover of Lagavulin 16 Year
Overall experience was 5 stars. Been ordering Lag online for several years. When your website came on my screen I had to check you out. I an sure glad I did. Your price was excellent and free shipping - WOW!! My order came in 5 days. Living in the Pacific Northwest, that has to be a record? I WAS SO HAPPY! A week later I ordered a second batch off Lag. It is our favorite single malt and I have enough to last several months. Your customer service people are great. Give them all a raise! With these prices and service, you have a customer cor life. Cheers, John C

Lagavulin Single Malt Scotch
The 16 year old single malt is my favorite Islay scotch. The Wine Chateau price with free shipping was an incredible deal.
