Product Description

Bottled in 2012, this 1996 edition of Lagavulin's Distillers Edition (probably the most sought after in the range) combines the regular rich, peat smoke that the distillery is known for with a finishing period in sweet Pedro Ximenez sherry casks for even more depth of flavour.

    Richard Weston,

    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.
