Insider knowledge: Lagavulin 1993 (bottled 2009) Pedro Ximénez Cask Finish - Distillers Edition whisky is named whisky by virtue of the fact it's from Scotland. If distilled in America the spelling would be Lagavulin 1993 (bottled 2009) Pedro Ximénez Cask Finish - Distillers Edition whiskey, as opposed to whisky.
Nose: Very rounded. Sweet, juicy, hints of nutty espresso. Sherry and in spades! Smoke.
Palate: Lovely interplay of peat smoke and thick, juicy sherry. Sweet, hints of iodine, sultanas.
Finish: Long, cocoa, toffee, smoke, overripe grape.
