Lagavulin Distiller’s Edition 2011 Release

Country: Scotland
Region: Islay
Type: Single Malt
Bottler: Distiller
ABV: 43%
Score: 93 points

This year’s edition was finished in Pedro Ximinez sherry casks, and the nose has a mild peatiness with a touch of creosote, slightly tarry with good nutty notes of almond and cashew, and a hint of red grapes. The taste has a great smokiness that builds up slowly with a touch of caramel cola underneath and notes of figs, raisins, heather, and gorse. The finish has a great mouthfeel with touches of caramel candy, allspice, nutmeg, and oranges.
