From the Lagavulin distillery on the island of Islay comes the 1997 Distillers Edition, a fantastic single malt which has been maturing since 1997 and enjoyed a finishing period in Pedro Ximénez cask before being bottled in 2013. Thick and honeyed with characteristic smoky notes, these Distillers Editions from Lagavulin are always an excellent excuse to crack open a box of dark chocolates alongside your whisky after dinner.

I fell in love with Lagavulin 16 more than 20 years ago and it remains as my favourite. Last month, a friend brought one to our dinner party knowing that I like Lagavulin. Well it is just better in all aspects. Unfortunately, it is not easy to find.

Simply one of the best examples of an Islay malt. The nose is medicinal and peaty with a palate that matches. A fantastic blend of smokey peat reminiscent of laphroaig But far more subtle Fairly mellow and sweet compared to the Lagavulin 16. Mildly smokey finish but very peaty and medicinal, not much fruit in the finish. All in all it's one of my favorites a fantastic way to introduce yourself to "peaty styled" malts.

It has a lot of similarities to the 16 year old, but to my pallet, there is just slightly less smoke and a bit more sweetness and it just makes it so much nicer to drink. Can't recommend it highly enough, especially for this price.

Good Scotch---- it's more of a smoke flavor then peat --- many confuse the two---- taste Caol ILA and you will taste and smell the difference of a pleated Scotch vs smokey Scotch--- they may both use a pleated barley but the difference is huge-- Some Scotch have both--- taste amrut fusion an India whiskey that has both flavors

First off, beautiful bottle. If Laggy 16 had an illegitimate love child with an M&S jar of Manuka honey, PX '97 Distillers Edition. You almost wish the abv was a couple of notches higher so you just get that much more rounded lengthy rich finish but he's still exciting, warm & puts a massive smile on your face. The Friday night Jazz comment below is on point. Get two bottles of the PX '97 & be four times as happy.

just more of everything that makes the normal 16 year great. More smoke, more Peat, just more. nice change.

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 :-)
