Lagavulin Distiller's Edition Single Malt Scotch Whisky 2017
Double matured in Pedro Ximinez cask wood, this is a mellow Lagavulin, peat-rich, sweet and very more-ish. Appearance: Golden treacle. Nose: Intense peat and vanilla. A raisin sweetness checks the smoke. Iodine-edged peat and crisp, roasty malt. Satisfying and enticing. Body: Full bodied and rich in texture. Palate: A clear, grassy malt, then the peat lands - smoke filling the mouth. A very salty tang, the middle offers coffee, vanilla and fruit. Finish: Incredibly long, even by Islay standards. Fruit, peat and long-lasting oak. Very chewable.
