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.

Even better than the original, the Distiller's Edition maintains the signature peat and smoothness, but with an added zest.
