Lagavulin Distillers Edition 2015 is the smoothest, richest, mack-daddy-est Islay single-malt available on the open market. 
 
Lagavulin is located in the village of … Lagavulin, on the island of Islay. Now, if your know your Islay single-malts—and we know that you do—then you know a bit what to expect. The entire Lagavulin line has that savory-sweet smokiness that Islay-lovers love to love. But Lagavulin is a bit of a special case because they have won more medals than Michael Phelps double gold medal here, 95-points there, “best of” this and that. 
 
John Jonston and Archibald Campbell started “officially” making Whisky here in 1816 and the distillery is famous for their extra-long, low and slow distillation process and the unique, pear-shaped stills. But you won’t care about that. Islay Whisky fans love them for producing an exceptionally smooth, sophisticated, and flavorful single-malt from the smoky island. 
 
Lagavulin Distillers Edition 2015 is special. The island Whisky gods at Lagavulin have been creating this wonderful special release for years, following the same formula … they take their award winning smoky dram of Islay awesomeness and finish it in PX casks. What are “PX” casks you ask? Well there young lad, let me tell ‘ya ….
 
PX is Whisky-insider shorthand for “Pedro Ximénez.” Pedro Ximénez is actually a very special kind of grape that is pretty much only used for one thing … making Pedro Ximénez Sherry. This Sherry is one of the most intense, rich, and flavor-packed Sherries anywhere, anytime, period. Each used PX casks costs more than an average mortgage payment and everybody wants ‘em. Lagavulin’s got ‘em, and this makes their Distillers Edition the smoothest, richest, mack-daddy-est Islay single-malt available on the open market. Get some … now.

Lagavulin was one of the most popular names among single malts already in 1904. According to the Whisky writer of the time, Alfred Barnard, it was “...in such demand that the orders exceed the output”.
Single Malt Scotch Whisky is made in Scotland using a pot still distillation process at a single distillery, with malted barley as the only grain ingredient. It must be matured in oak casks in Scotland for at least three years (most Single Malts are matured longer, though).
Whisky or Whiskey? The spelling differs geographically. In Scotland, Japan, and some other parts of the world, distilleries usually spell it Whisky; in Ireland and the USA, they spell it Whiskey.
First-class Whiskies are taxed not only by the state but also by the angels. This refers to the 4% of Whisky that evaporates from the barrels every year, a phenomenon known as the angel’s share.
Categories of Scotch Whisky: Single malt, Blended malt (formerly called Vatted malt), blended, single grain and blended grain Scotch.
Can Scotch go bad? Technically, an unopened bottle of Scotch can last forever. Air is the only true evil to Whisky; once the liquid is oxidized it is no longer immortal. After opening, as long as you store your Whisky in a cool, dry place, it will last another 5 years.
