    Seems like the sherry casks had more grip on this whisky than in more recent versions of the DE. Beautiful.

    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.

  9. Feusi scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    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.
