Cherry, cranberry, peat, leather, chocolate, plum and toffee.
Chocolate, hazelnut paste, cherry, bramble, peat and plum.
- What I have often enjoyed about the Distillers Edition is the
sophistication of each different bottle released. They all have
individual character that are hard to match up. I love the smoke, peat
and lush fruit like complexity in each drink. When you add a few drops
of water it comes alive and the palate just gets more vibrant and a
finish that`s equally wonderful.
- Slight peat smoke with a nice fragrance. Well balanced with notes of Islay peat, sea salt on the palate. Very positive is the pleasant, not too intrusive smoke. Perfectly balanced result sherry notes with a long finish, a top Lagavulin.
