When I roamed the Munich airport last time, in my arms, without the slightest hesitation, Lagavulin Distillers Edition fell in. Single malt distilled in 1998 and bottled in 2014, batch No. lgv. 4/503, 43% ABV. The tradition of Distillers Edition is Double Maturation. The second one takes place in a wine barrels, in the case of lgv. 4/503 this is Pedro Ximenez. Will my expectations be satisfied? Let’s see.

N: if on cue, the peat and smoke, in the way I like, and next to them bravely follows hard candy sweetness and candied fruit, mainly cherries, dried apricots, plums, a little honey, and as soon as also touches of the sea air, salt, which over time is more and more deeper, I also have something like tobacco and broth, and then also mint, asphalt, grilled seafood, then widely spreading orange zest and orange; you can smell it for a long time and there is always something to discover;

T: adequately to the smell, no doubt peat, then a little fire, again peat ash and salt, in the background fruits, cherries, plum and chocolate, also in the taste I sense mint and melissa, grilled oysters, oranges, yum …;

F: long with peat, traces of ash and oranges.

Score: 90.

Beautiful Lagavulin Distillers Edition. It has everything I like in the single malts. I already imagine how wonderful it would smell and taste as a the cask/batch strength. Ah … so …

    I think this is the finest single malt whiskey I have ever drank! I usually drink the normal 16 year old,,,this double matured batch 4/503 will be savored by me ,,,one sip at a time.
    Thank You,,,,Ron

      In my opinion it’s very nice whisky. It was very hard for me to decide which is better Lagavulin 16 or this 4/503. They’re both worth sipping. Greetings, Lukasz.

    Witam, jako człowiek z branży alkoholowej , bardziej praktyk niż teoretyk, nie mogę się zgodzić z tak bardzo pochlebną opinią o tej whisky, biorąc pod uwagę jej cenę należy znacznie więcej od niej oczekiwać, mnie zawiodła, pozdrawiam i chętnie polecę whisky kosztujące połowę tej ceny co Lagavulin a lepsze technicznie lub co najmniej porównywalne, pozdrawiam Janusz Piechowski

      Witam. To jest piękne w whisky, że każdy ma prawo do własnej opinii, zwłaszcza kiedy chodzi o smak, czy zapach 🙂
      Na rynku jest wiele bardzo dobrych produktów. A co do cen, cóż… generalnie single malty są zbyt drogie.
      Pozdrawiam.

    I recently tried this over the Christmas holidays. The best I have ever tasted. It was fantastic – smokey peaty up front with the heather and honey at the finish — It was like angels dancing on my tongue. I am now ruined. WOW!
