Lagavulin 1993 Distillers Edition

Lagavulin 16 Year Old is one of the smokiest Islay single malts—a dram coveted by those who sip their whisky straight. Now, even this powerful spirit has been improved upon with the latest limited release of Lagavulin 1993 Distillers Edition (www.malts.com, $110). After aging for 16 years in ex-bourbon barrels, the Distillers Edition received six months of additional aging in former Pedro Ximénez sherry casks. The result is a haunting echo of sweet grapes and marzipan that soaks into the peated refrain of this 1993 distillate, which was bottled in 2009.
