Lagavulin 2020 Distillers Edition Single Malt Scotch Whisky, 750ml
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.
Serving Suggestion: The intense flavours of the Distiller’s Edition reveal themselves when drunk with just a drop of water.
Rich, deep amber.
Full and rich.
Satisfying and enticing; intense peat, vanilla. A raisiny sweetness checks the smoke. Crisp, roasty malt.
Sweet and luscious; clear malt, smoke fills the mouth. Very salty tang; coffee, vanilla, a glimmer of fruit.
Incredibly long, even for Islay. Fruit, peat, and long-lasting oak. Very engaging and enjoyable.
