Lagavulin Distiller's Edition
Double Matured, 16-Years Old, 86 proof

"Double Matured" is a wonderful sounding phrase.  It makes you think "old"... in a good way. We picture long drives through the British countryside in houndstooth coats under a light rain.  Conversation about the good old days when Connery was Bond, driving was 'motoring', and martinis were lunch.  Old leather and natural wood grain and faded sepia maps that lead to treasures unimaginable.  

Lagavulin "Double Matured" Distiller's Edition is a lovely beast that has undergone a second aging process in Pedro Ximenez Sherry casks. Pedro Ximenez Sherry is a dark, mahogany-colored sweet desert wine. The aroma is pure sweet brown sugar and orange zest over layers of peat smoke.  It opens up after a few minutes into roasted almonds, cinnamon, chamomile, lemon peels, spicy cloves, and honey. There is absolutely no burn, no wince after you take your first neat sip.  The taste is sweet, moving from a thick sugar in the middle of the tongue to a citrusy explosion on the sides of the mouth.  When it hits the back of the tongue, you discover cherries and nutmeg, and a wonderful spicy and warm flavor. The finish seems to go on for hours.  The fruits are replaced by a deep peaty smoke. The smoke erases all the after-bite of the whisky. You can just sit there smiling and enjoying the lingering smoky goodness for a few minutes after your first sip.

Lagavulin Distiller's edition gets a straight "A". It's a wonderful holiday gift for any Islay-lovers in your life, and a welcome addition to any collection.
