A strong Distillers Edition variant - which Lagavulin fan has not always dreamed of!
In parallel to the famous 16yo White Horse-Lagavulin tasted with gold letters. Both are of the same quality, for me this Distillery Only is even a nose ahead.
Full, full, powerful and very balanced. The smoke is there and in just the right amount and well integrated. This one switches off the only major weakness of the normal DEs (namely the somewhat too low punch) - as expected with the barrel strength - but retains the character with the combination of fruit, smoke and sherry.
It's a lot of fun!
