Lagavulin Scotch Distillers Edition 1997

Lagavulin Scotch Distillers Edition 750ML 1997      
Sku: 14815

Last year's vintage won two Gold Medals from the IWSC. With all your favourite Lagavulin characteristics, allied to an extra layer of sweetness, this is the most consistently excellent of the highly popular Distiller's Edition series.

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

BODY : Full and rich.

PALATE : Sweet and luscious; a clear, grassy malt, then the peat attacks, smoke filling the mouth. A very salty tang at one point; the middle offers coffee and vanilla with a glimmer of fruit.

FINISH : Incredibly long, even for Islay. Fruit, peat and long-lasting oak. Very chewable and “more-ish”.

Rating
 Ultimate Beverage Challenge 97 points (Mar 2011)
Ultimate Spirits Challenge 2011 Chairman's Trophy. Integrated aromas of dried fruit, wood smoke and toasted grains impress deeply; full-bodied, but elegant flavors include toasted marshmallow, cigar smoke and walnuts.

Country: Scotland
Region: Island
Sub-Region: Islay
Type: Single Malt Scotch
