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

I purchased Lagavulin 16 yr for my husband for Father's Day and he was over the moon ecstatic about it! Ordering, shipping, and tasting have all been easy and delightful.
not happy with shipping costs
The service was great and the product came quickly but I feel the shipping costs are too high .I want to buy 2 bottles of Nocello walnut liqueur on a regular basis but the shipping brings up the cost too much
I ordered the scotch for a gift before Christmas. The order was delivered quickly and I loved the text message alert feature-great to know when the item was delivered. Thanks-great service!
Great Product! Shipping Slow & Overpriced!
Great products and prices, but the shipping charges didn't show up until after the purchase was made which is really bad business. Additionally, if I knew it would cost $25 to ship one 750ml bottle taking nearly 2 weeks to arrive prior to ordering I would not have purchased from you folks. Show the shipping price up front and the time you take to pack & ship, then I might consider buying from you again.
single malt scotch
I was very satisfied..I never had a single malt scotch..was very pleased with the service and the product...
