Customer Rating

Bottled in 2015, this is the 1999 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.

    A perfectly balanced mixture of smoke and sweet fruit flavors makes this one of Lagavulin's best offerings to date.

    Bought as a gift for my partner, difficult to navigate the whisky world when you aren't a drinker yourself. I had an idea he liked Lagavulin but not certain which one to go for. After reading multiple reviews the Distiller's Edition came up number one. My partner has not stopped raving about it, absolutely adores it. The additional personalised engraving looked beautiful. The service was incredible, it suggested around a week for delivery but arrived in a matter of days. I'm truly pleased with this purchase and service, and my partner adores the flavour.

    Complex and smokey on the nose. Hint of sweetness on the palate. Long finish, dark chocolate

    Not what I expected. Being in the PX cask sort of ruins it for me. When bottle is first opened you get that signature Lagavulin smoke and peat. It is still there once poured, but goes away quickly. My first tadte was of a band-aid and stayed there for a couple of sips. It does go away and the sweetness comes out. It starts peaty and smokey and does not really come back, when it does it is faint.

    Love this it suits my tastebuds perfectly. Smooth with the right amount of smoke and peat. Very, very drinkable glad I bought more than one.

    Didn't have the same impact as the 16 year old. Toning down the peat without the other flavours coming through strongly enough was a disappointment. I wouldn't have bought this had I have had a taster.

    Got some character but unfortunately the sherry cask aspect is hidden behind the peat and therefore not really noticeable.

    A disappointment for me. Inferior to the 16 year old at a much higher price. Lacks punch, bite call it what you will - like Lagavulin lite. It's pleasant obviously, but not 80 quid pleasant.

    Initial distinctive Lagavulin flavour which smooths off as it reaches the back of the throat. Sweetness seems to come stronger after the second dram. Overall very pleasing.
