Lagavulin 2001 (bottled 2017) Pedro Ximénez Cask Finish 43% – Distillers Edition
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.
To reveal the full dept and complexity of the distillers edition of LAGAVULIN, 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 of LAGAVULIN 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.
This is an unforgettable, richly flavoured malt whisky with intense layers of raisin sweetness and smoky flavour.
