When Lagavulin decided to produce a secondary cask-finished version - The Distillers Edition, there were doubters who thought nothing could be a match for the pungent strength of Lagavulin. Those sceptics were unfamiliar with Pedro-Ximenez. Appearance: Deep gold. Palate: Big flavour. Begins with sweetness, and ends with peat, smoke and hints of seaweed. Finish: Incredibly long even by Lagavulin standards, smooth and rounded, with waves of sandy dryness.
