The Perfect Measure

Lagavulin Distillers Edition Gift Set

5x3cl
Best-known around the world for the award-winning 16 Year Old, Lagavulin’s Distillers Edition bottlings take that whisky and further mature it in sweet PX sherry casks, to add an extra layer of rich and fruity flavour. Each release of the Distillers Edition is from a different year, and while they have a similar style, each is distinct, with its own character. This Perfect Measure tasting set gives you the chance to try your way through recent vintages and taste the difference.
