- Brand: Lagavulin
- Product Code: LG20
- Availability: In Stock
A Lagavulin finished in PX Sherry Cask, that combines the two most beautiful extremes of the whisky world; exuberant fruit, and rich sweetness from the sherry cask and the heavy, oily smokiness from the stills of this iconic Islay distillery. Trademark phenolic peat smoke aromas bellow around complex notes of fine vanilla pods, homemade caramel toffee, sea air, dates, honeycomb, ripe plums. Sipping bring forth ashen intense peat smoke, phenolic-salty iodine all of which welcome you through to a sumptuous banquet of sherry barrel laden intensity from dried fruits, dark cherries, redcurrants, and plump raisins. Solid notes of oak allow bitter dark chocolate and fresh espresso to evolve its enormously complex and full-bodied structure. An intensely long finale of sea air, peat smoke, oak, and freshly roasted coffee beans.
A full bodied dram, succulently sublime in its chewiness…
- Mark Jenner, The Rare Malt
Classic Malts 系列中的 Distillers Editions都以兩次熟成為特色，在保留酒廠特色同時，用不同酒桶去豐富味道層次。Lagavulin的Distillers Edition，是以PX Sherry Cask作最後熟成。可以理解為恆常款16年的Sherry finished版本。為其獨特的煙灰、檸皮味再添上雪莉香。
