This is the 2001 vintage of Lagavulin's Distillers Edition, bottled in 2017. 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 (1)

Appearance: Rich, deep gold color. Leaves tears on the side when you swirl it in the glass. Nose: Immediately peat and black leather, but not in an aggressive way like some Islay scotch. This is inviting. A whiff reveals a saline quality, like sea-spray. Eventually hints of pears and green apples in the background. Taste: Smokey, salted honey peanuts mixed with raisins. Smooth on the tongue without feeling oily. Overall: Many Islay whiskies I find are too heavy on the peat, overshadowing other qualities. In this one, however, I find smoke, sweetness and salinity in perfect harmony, making it very moreish.
This is without a doubt the best whisky I've ever had. I cannot recommend this enough if your wallet can take it. I have a bottle right now, and I'm bringing it to my going away party tomorrow before I leave for basic training next month. I can think of no better drink to send me off.
Classic Lagavulin with an extra, heavenly touch.
I have tried and bought many whiskies from Islay. This one stays my favorite, no matter what new product I taste. I mean, it is just the perfect mix between costal smoky notes, sweetness and fruitiness. It is also so complex that you never get bored. Absolute must-buy.
All the leather and smoke of the Lagavulin 16 with a bit of a sweet and fruit note. So SO GOOD.
