Lagavulin 16 year islay single malt

This one has just taken the top spot for my new favorite whisky. Smokey and peaty, it reminds me a lot of tobacco, smoked bacon, a good barbecue, etc. Long lingering finish that slowly evolves into a almost savory burn in the throat.

I’ve never really ventured into islay

malts before (which are known for their punchy smokey aromas), as most of my friends like the smooth ones. Think glenfiddich, macallan, auchentoshan, glenmorangie, etc. But I realize I really like this. Time to go try the other islay malts. I’ve heard that the 12 year Lagavulin is even punchier.
