Lagavulin 1993 Distiller’s Edition

Yes it is true. I have a new member of the family. Along with being passionate about Agile and Lean Software Development, the Lagavulin Single Malt is also a passion of mine. If you have a soft spot for Islay scotches I recommend it with all my being. It is a wonderful 1993 Lagavulin that has been double matured. The following is a quote from the review:


“The answer is a definitive yes when considering any Lagavulin bottling, but even more so when its the 16-year Distiller’s Edition. This bottling is finished in Pedro Ximenez sherry casks for several months, after nearly 16 years in its initial bourbon cask. The sherry cask (Pedro Ximenez being the most unctuous and sweet of all sherries) has the effect of adding body, flavor, and color to the already very, very good Lagavulin 16-year (their most common official bottling).

The scotch is orange-amber in appearance with occasional greenish glints on the surface. The nose is a mix of bonfires, smoke, barbecue roasted pork, caramel sweets, and the smoky smell that lingers on your clothes the day after you’ve spent all night sitting in front of a bonfire beside a lake on a cool summer evening. The palate is dense and textured, with flavors of smoke and bonfires, overripe, melt-in-your-mouth raspberries, crushed black szechuan pepper, and caramel. The finish starts bitter with abundant smoke that gives way to savory toffee sweetness which itself slowly gives over to cotton candy.”

It is overwhelmingly good and the flavours are balanced perfectly. Highly recommended dram for a cool spring evening.
