Insider knowledge: Lagavulin 1997 (bottled 2013) 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 1997 (bottled 2013) Pedro Ximénez Cask Finish - Distillers Edition whiskey, as opposed to whisky.
I have both and can barely tell them apart. Get two bottles of the 16 and be twice as happy.

I was after the sherry monsters for a very long time. I started to completely denounce anything peated. Once I had my first sip of this bad boy, it brought me back into the fold. Sweet, smokey, very well made whiskey. You can tell they take a lot of pride in the product, and presentation. Love this whiskey after a long week. This is the best dram to pour on a Friday when you just want to tune out and listen to some great jazz.

Perfect blend of peat smoke and subtle sweetness. Get it before it's gone!

don't get me wrong, Lagavulin 16 is the goto for me. After finishing a few of those bottles, this is a fresh reminder of why Lagavulin is the #1 Islay in my opinion.
Stronger peat with a sweetness that you wouldn't acknowledge could accentuate the smoke until you try it.
An amazing buy-no regrets :-)
