DESCRIPTION

Lagavulin 1999 Distillers Edition, bottled in 2015, this is the 1999 vintage of Lagavulin's Distillers Edition. By far the most popular of the series, this double-matured Lagavulin has had a finishing period in sweet, sticky Pedro Ximénez sherry casks. A whisky that never disappoints.

TASTING NOTES 

Appearance
Golden treacle.

Nose
Intense peat and vanilla. A raisin sweetness checks the smoke. Iodine-edged peat and crisp, roasty malt. Satisfying and enticing.

Body
Full bodied and rich in texture.

Palate
A clear, grassy malt, then the peat lands – smoke filling the mouth. A very salty tang, the middle offers coffee, vanilla and fruit.

Finish
Incredibly long, even by Islay standards. Fruit, peat and long-lasting oak. Very chewable.
