A 2006 Distillers Edition Lagavulin single malt, matured in ex-Pedro Ximenez sherry casks until it was bottled in 2021. Aromas of bold peat, sweet vanilla, roasted malt and ashy smoke fill the nose, complemented by notes of sea salt, coffee, vanilla, intense peat smoke and hints of green apple and lemon throughout the palate.
Region: Isle of Islay
Nose: This smells like a sweet campfire or a barbecue. There are heavy notes of smoking vegetation with hints of toffee, caramel, and raisin backing it up.
Palate: This is delicious and complex whisky that you can chew on. The flavor profile starts off with a sweet caramel quality that develops into a rich barbecue flavor with a touch of spice. There is a touch of the medicinal right before transitioning to the finish that certainly won’t be for everyone.
Finish: Starts off with just a touch of cocoa and leaves you with dried fruit and a touch of tobacco. The flavor profile, start to finish, is backed up by a lovely amount of peaty smoke that is a bit more mellow than the traditional 16-year-old.
