Lagavulin 2001 (bottled 2017) Pedro Ximénez Cask Finish - Distillers Edition.
The "Distillers Edition" whiskies in Diageo's Classic Malts range always undergo a double-maturation. This one has spent time in Pedro Ximenez sherry casks. Richly flavoured with intense layers of raisin sweetness and smoky character.
Distilled in 2001 and bottled 2017
Nose: Seaweed, rich fruity and intense Dundee cake, torn mint, almonds.
Palate: Intensely peaty, followed by blueberry syrup, bitter chocolate and dates.
Finish: Maritime salt lingers on the finish with a final edge of sweetness.
