The 1997 vintage of Lagavulin's Distillers Edition bottled in 2013. By far the most popular of the Distiller's Edition series this double matured Lagavulin has had a finishing period in sweet, sticky Pedro Ximenez sherry casks. A whisky that never disappoints.
Not as smoky and peaty as I'm accustomed to with Lagavulin, but different and still absolutely delicious. It is a bit more sweet, with hints of currant or raisin. Very smooth, of course, well worth a try!

Very nice, but lacks the complexity of the regular 16 year. Less earthiness. Still wonderful, but why pay more for less?

As a lover of Lagavulin I was surprised by the wonderful peat with just a hint of raisin. Your nose tells you this is your favourite Lagavulin, but the taste is a delicious surprise but remains true to the label.

too sweet, with only faint smoke left in it, like grasping onto a distant old memory of lagavulin, long since washed away by a sherried mid-teen speysider, lucky for me i got the chance to taste an open botte at amsterdam duty free and avoided it...
