LAGAVULIN Distillers Edition 43%
Single Malt Whisky, Scotland / Islay, 70cl, Ref: 8334
Our experts reviews“ Launched in 1997, Lagavulin Distillers Edition remains, after 18 years, an unmissable experience, that any whisky lover worthy of the name should taste at least once. And don’t worry if you were bothered by the peatiness of the Lagavulin 16 year old. When peat is married with sherry the results can be surprising. Smooth and spicy, the wild, medicinal character of the 16 year old becomes sweet and smoky. Lastly, while the first versions distilled in 1979 have become collectors’ items, there is no reason to consider the current batches inferior.
Launched in 1997, the multi-award winning Lagavulin Distillers Edition remains an unmissable experience, with the fierce peatiness of Lagavulin working in perfect harmony with sherry. Pedro Ximenez casks have been expertly selected to provide additional complexity to this Islay malt, providing a rich, balanced sweetness to the distillery’s characteristically intense spicy character.

- The brand
Lagavulin was the first distillery to legally produce whisky on the Isle of Islay. Located to the east of Port Ellen, which provides it with its malted barley, Lagavulin produces a peaty malt in strict respect of the island’s traditions. Smoky, marine and delicately woody, Lagavulin’s character has become a veritable ambassador for the Islay malts, particularly thanks to the Lagavulin 16 Year Old, which was chosen to represent the Islay malts in the Classic Malts range, and which has, in the space of 20 years, become a veritable icon.

Laphroaig 10 year old is undoubtedly one of the all time great malt whiskies from Scotland. Its idiosyncratic peaty character stands out...€46.00

Whisky pour les amateurs des Islay tourbés. Excellent whisky, double maturation en fût de xérès lui donne une saveur particulière et boisé à souhait.
