Lagavulin

Lagavilin
16 year Old Islay, 43% vol

Appearence:
Amber; very old Sauternes

Aroma:
Little nose prickle, and surprisingly low intensity of (straight) aroma. Little discernable smoke to start. Generally quite closed. Some cognac and cooking chocolate and an interesting scent of clover flowers.
(dilute) Cover continues when water is added, with some plastic buckets. The smokiness manifests itself only as light Lapsang Suchong tea.

Flavour:
The primary taste starts sweet (nougat) and finishes darkly smoky (coal smoke). The flavour immediately gives away the whisky's provenance.
