Finished in casks previously containing Pedro Ximenez sherry, this Lagavulin is the most popular of the 'Distillers Edition' expressions of the Classic Malts. A delicious layer of sherry sweetness smooths out the rough edges of the standard bottling.
Superb dram, almost perfect.
Picked this up at an Airport for under 70 quid three years ago, now its over twice that...should of bought 10 bottles!

A very good Islay single malt with plenty of character. I recently tasted another Pedro Ximinez finished whisky (Benriach 15yo) and there the sweetness was almost too overwhelming. Not so with Lagavulin DE; here the added sherry flavor tames the characteristic smokiness only slightly, creating a very balanced profile. Not my personal favorite Islay whisky, but nevertheless a great quality product. 8 out of 10
