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)
Pedro Ximenez Sherry Finish
Tasting notes by The Whisky Exchange
Rich peat smoke with candied sweetness: honey, glacé cherries, plums and dried apricots.
Singed herbs, smoky orange peel and seashore bonfires – sea spray, wood smoke and kippers.
Old bonfires, marmalade and spicy peat.

Wow...an amazing Lagavulin! A simply remarkable drop which is rich and smoky.
Bloody good drop!!
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.
