Lagavulin Distiller's Edition Double Matured Single Malt Scotch Whisky 2015
"To reveal the full depth and complexity of this distillers edition, our master distiller has hand-selected a small number of casks for double maturation in specially crafted pedro ximenez cask-wood. Its accents of rich, sun-dried grape sweetness have been chosen to complement this spectacular single malt's rich complex style.
A limited release made usually just once a year, the distillers edition enjoys both rarity and superior quality. The packaging carries the symbol of the distillery and the proud name of Mackie & Son. who brought the distillery to fame. Each bottle carries a batch number, which designates the selected casks specially crafted for double maturation."
Full-bodied Lagavulin is richly peated. Smoky and intense on the palate. Mightiest of the Islay malts in style, it has a salty edge of sea-spray. This is an unforgettable, richly flavored malt whisky with intense layers of raisin sweetness and smoky flavour.
