The 1995 vintage of Lagavulin’s delicious Distiller’s Edition Double Matured. This stuff is finished in sweet Pedro Ximenez dessert sherry casks, and it’s bloomin’ marvelous. Very smoky and very thick, sweet and sticky. Beautiful with chocolates after dinner!
Nose: Smoky and woody. Hints of forest floor, wood sheds, cut hay, sultanas, rum and raisin icecream and porcini mushrooms.
Palate: Creamy and very Christmassy! Lots of peat smoke, nut oil, hazelnut, cocoa, sultanas, crispy bacon, a little kipper, sticking plasters and molasses.
Finish: Old rum, nutmeg, rhubarb and dark chocolate fudge.
