Lagavulin 16. I'd forgotten how much I used to love this whisky.
then along came Ardbeg and that took over for a few years, and i almost forgot about Lagavulin. but tonight, as the bottle got low, i relised why they call it the "aristocrat of islays."
among the smoke and peat of our favourite "monsters", I believe none have quite the elegance of ....Lagavulin 16!
An 'ace' as Richard joynson would say.
Maybe even an ace among aces...
