Lagavulin 1997 Pedro Ximenez Finish Single Malt
70cl, 43% abv
Lagavulin 1997 Pedro Ximenez Finish Single Malt Whisky is the 1997 vintage of Lagavulin's fantastic Distiller's Edition. This expression was finished in Pedro Ximenez dessert sweet Sherry casks. It is thick and smoky with sweet tones and a sticky mouth-feel. A beautiful after dinner dram.
Nose: Strong notes of Sherry with wine hints, followed by salt and seaweed.
Palate: Rich and extremely sweet, then smoky. Lightness subsides to reveal a chewy, oily body which resurges before releasing sooty senses.
Finish: Long; smoky, salty with pepper.
