Product Description

An old edition of the 16 year old Lagavulin finished in ex- Pedro Ximenez Sherry casks and part of their regular Distillers Edition range.

Nose: An intense attack of dark beeswax, smoked tar, smoked fish, sherry soaked raisin, salty treacle, rich dark oak,stewed dried fruits and old tea chests.

Palate: Sweet, syrupy, tarry and smoky. Raisins soaked in dark sherry, smoked coffee grinds, earthy/truffle like mouthfeel, black gunpowder tea, seaweed, coal tar.

Finish: Smoked mackeral marinated with dark soy sauce, rich sweet sherry, salty cured meats, bbq smoke, raisin and truffle.

Epic mix of Islay tar smoke and sweet Spanish Sherry. A classic of its style and quite difficult to pull of such a combination with such aplomb.

Christmas cake on an Islay BBQ! A superb winter warmer of a malt.
