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.

    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.

    If you like smoky, peat-ey, complex scotch this is absolutely a must! I have tried bottles from 4 of the 8 Islay distilleries and this is my preferred bottle.

    I enjoy this immensely. What you’d expect from Lagavulin.
