Product Description

The 1998 vintage of Lagavulin's Distillers Edition. By far the most popular of the series, this double-matured Lagavulin has had a finishing period in sweet, sticky Pedro Ximénez sherry casks. A whisky that never disappoints.

Tasting Notes

Tasting Notes

  • Tasting Notes by the Whisky Exchange

    • Nose

      Rich peat smoke with candied sweetness: honey, glacé cherries, plums and dried apricots.

    • Palate

      Singed herbs, smoky orange peel and seashore bonfires – sea spray, wood smoke and kippers.

    • Finish

      Old bonfires, marmalade and spicy peat.

  • Producer's Tasting Notes

    • Nose

      Intense peat and vanilla. A raisin sweetness checks the smoke. Iodine-edged peat and crisp, roasty malt. Satisfying and enticing.

    • Palate

      Full bodied and rich in texture. A clear, grassy malt, then the peat lands – smoke filling the mouth. A very salty tang, the middle offers coffee, vanilla and fruit.

    • Finish

      Incredibly long, even by Islay standards. Fruit, peat and long-lasting oak. Very chewable.

    Benjamin,

    I wouldn’t claim to be an expert, but I have been enjoying single malt whiskeys for a little over ten years now. As my taste has matured and I have grown older I can appreciate a deep, smokey and peaty whiskey in ways that were foreign to me previously. This whiskey from my favourite distillery is frankly stunning. It deep, infinitely drinkable and wonderfully approachable. The taste is heavenly and smooth with a lovely level warmth. I can’t reckomend it enough and it stands near the top for what Lagavulin has produced. Delicious.

    Rory,

    Beautiful single malt from Lagavulin! Not sure if it's worth the mark up compared to the standard 16 though... An extra few quid for a half in the pub - certainly!! Beautiful looking bottle as well.
