Tasting Notes by The Whisky Exchange
Nose: Milk chocolate, berry fruit, orange and lots of smoke – maritime peat and burning logs.
Palate: Savoury peat and oak notes meet dark chocolate, dried fruit and coffee with a pinch of pepper.
Finish: Dark and ashy, with coffee balanced by singed raisins.

Very nice – much smoother than regular Lagavulin.
lagavulin 1995 distillers edition purely is whisky royalty enjoyed with my two sons best way to enjoy a good whisky with family or friends excellent whisky would buy again. the cognac of whisky if you like smooth with smoke you will love this one not as medicinal as the 16 year old which i love this one would beat any whisky to the finishing post gold medal for this one
The 19 year is up there for some of the best Islay whiskeys i''ve ever had. Soft and peaty, its like lying on a cloud coated in velvet. It''s not at all intrusive on the nose with smokey notes not over powering its peaty, cedar character. This is one Whiskey that is truly worth saving and sharing among good friends.
I have been drinking this for many years & also many other fine malts & truth be told, it's my "Go to " bottle for the ultimate flavour of what a Good Islay whisky is all about. I may not be very articulate to go into details of the aroma or taste profile, but at the end of it all, when you're sipping the Laga "DE " you've peace of mind & satisfaction of a contented man. cheers .
