Lagavulin 2000 Distillers Bottling Note

Here's the 2016 release of Lagavulin's Distillers Edition expression, which was distilled in 2000 and finished in Pedro Ximenéz casks before being bottled in 2016. 2016 was a big year for the distillery on the south coast of Islay, as they were celebrating their 200th anniversary - as referenced on this whisky's label.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Well-roasted barley and wafts of iodine. A creaminess of vanilla and yoghurt coated raisins.

Palate: Seville orange and cherry. More medicinal peat and a touch of seaweed. Dried apricot and chewy pecans.

Finish: Long and satisfyingly smoky.

Lagavulin 2000 (bottled 2016) Pedro Ximénez Cask Finish - Distillers Edition Reviews

The best

This is a complex peaty whisky. It has it all - peat, iodine, smoke, and a beautiful finish due to aging in oloroso casks. If you leave some in a glass bedside you can can actually smell the smoke in the morning when you arise. Drink this one if ardbeg has overpowers you.

Impeccable!

When I was a newbie I bought a bottle of Lagavulin 16 that lasted me almost two years. The introduction of strong, smoke and peat along with iodine just did not sit well with me. At around a 3rd of the bottle left it finally hit me that this stuff was gooooood!! Have been thinking of another bottle but this year I decided to give the Distillers Edition a try instead.

Now this is what I'm talkin' about!! The balance is impeccable, so complex, figs and nut and plush red fruit. The smoke and peat are still there but not overpowering but well rounded and blended with the aforementioned notes. I have not experienced 25 or 30 year old malts but I would be shocked if they were any better than this. Lagavulin hit this out of the park and it is now on the top of my list....just can't see anything knocking it down to second.....price being a consideration.

Highly recommended.

I received a bottle today, for my 65th birthday, from my son. I am so glad he got me this one. A beautiful, well rounded, earthy, rich, smoky dram that ranks right up there with some that are double or triple the cost, or more! I found the peatiness and smoke to be more balanced than the regular 16yo. This has a wonderful nose, exquisite middle, and a stellar lingering finish. This is one I will savor on special occasions only.

Superb!

Having tasted the Laga 16yo, this is of a completely different level. Does not taste too peaty and the smokiness is just right, not overwhelming. One of the best whiskeys!

Rounded, Less Medicinal Peat and More Sweet Notes Than the Laga 16 Standard

Creamier from start to sweetening (but not too sweet) finish.
The soft peat and smoke, present from nose to finish, bookend the slightly different style of Laga distillate relative to the Standard 16: but, the sherry cask-finished Islay never lets you forget, even for a moment, that you are enjoying yet another well-crafted Lagavulin.

If you really enjoy the 16, as well as PX-casked whisky, then the 2000 Distiller's Edition should please your discerning palate and make for a memorable Lagavulin.

This humble reviewer plans to purchase another bottle of the 2000 DE before the stock depletes.
Slàinte mhath!

Cracking drop

Both Rays say it’s excellent. That’s a seal of approval

Five star

It's just a touch of class.. a tremendous drop.

Great whisky!

Much better than Lagavulin 16. I found it to be very similar to Ardbeg Uigeadail, which is a fantastic dram in my books.

12th September 2017

Lagavullin 12 flavours, delivered smoother and gentler

Premium smoother version of the Lagavullin I know and love that I didn't realise could be improved upon!!

22nd July 2017

Best of the DE so far

As above. All that have come before it have been great but this is the best of the bunch so far

Smoky

Amazing smoky magic full of tastes !

29th May 2017

Número Uno, as Pedro might once have said. Stunning, life enriching whisky.

My all time favourite.
A glorious, rich, warming mix of Islay smoke and Sherry candy.
If you love whisky, and particularly, if you enjoy Islays offerings, this is utterly unmissable and completely unforgettable. Relatively inexpensive even, as it's a complex 16 year old.
Buy. Immediately.

My first Laga

I guess I had great expectations. I tasted this Lagavulin together with Uigeadail and Talisker Amoroso finish and I have to say that this Lagavulin came third.

13th April 2017

Exceptional!

I'm a big fan of the standard 16yo Lagavulin so was interested in this Pedro Ximenéz variant. Well it's incredible. The dry smokiness marries perfectly with the sweetness of the sherry cask and the finish is long and satisfying. I was happy just sitting there smelling it! A beautifully balanced dram and well worth the price.

Characteristic Lagavulin - good character.

I get the sweet of PX casks, smoke, and a distinct taste of cherry at the end. Lovely.
