Lagavulin Scotch Distillers Edition 1998

Lagavulin Scotch Distillers Edition 750ML 1998      
Sku: 14815

Each Distillers Edition expression undergoes a second (or ‘double’) maturation in casks that have previously held a fortified wine. A really distinctive and distinguished dram, full of peat while the Pedro Ximinez sherry wood naturally has a big say; A more mellow Lagavulin, not quite as deep or intense as the 16 year old.

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
