Lagavulin, Distillers Edition 2020 (700ml)
The smoky, peated Lagavulin is seen as the ultimate expression of the Islay region.
Lagavulin Distiller’s Edition is double-matured in Pedro Ximenez cask wood, a wine derived from intensely flavoured sun-dried grapes, expertly selected for its raisiny sweetness to magically accentuate and deepen every aspect of the intense, rich character of Lagavulin.
This expression of Lagavulin was awarded a Gold medal at the International Spirits Challenge between 2008 and 2010.
A very enjoyable malt, Lagavulin Distiller’s Edition makes a perfect gift for lovers of Lagavulin and peaty and powerful whiskies.
Distilled 2005. Bottled 2020.
Colour: Deep gold
"This whisky is rich and chewy loaded with cooked fruits.
The iodine and smoke waltz in on the finish.
Hay, chocolate, and tobacco are found upon more contemplation.
The peat smoke is less intense on the palate than the standard 16 year Lagavulin as the beauty of the wine appears to have tamed the beast of a whisky."
