This Single Malt from the Scottish distillery Lagavulin matured for 16 years in American oak barrels and then in sherry barrels Pedro Ximenez before being bottled to 43%.
Intense, peaty, fruity, Lagavulin Distillers Edition benefits from a finish in Pedro Ximenez casks, a noble grape variety of Sherry that gives its name to a sweet and dark wine, processed from the grapes dried in the sun. This ageing conveys even more sweetness and smoothness to the spirit, with notes of raisins and figs.
The powerful and complex nature of Lagavulin and its distinctive smoky features match perfectly the sweetened accents of sun-dried grapes given by the casks.
To craft the Distillers Edition Single Malts, each one of the Classic Malts distillery selects a few matured casks that will undergo a second maturation in Sherry, Port, or Montilla wine casks.
When reaching bottling age, each Classic Malt undergoes an Iberian Peninsula cask finish for another 6 months, and then becomes a Distillers Edition.
