    Bet that will be interesting seeing how the peat and smoke marries with the Pedro Ximénez sherry cask finish.

    Enjoy!

    This is amusing Grant, Nick Offerman is a huge Lagavulin fan, he did a video once of him just sitting by a fire drinking Lagavulin 16 - it's 10 hours long!!!!

    I love it - this is a tad shorter!

    Very nice, Timbo! Only thing for me is that I find the 'standard' Lag rather smoky - too much for my tastes... However, your palate may be different, and also the Distillers Edition' might have a different flavour. In any case, enjoy

    Can you bear to tell us how much it cost? Around £80-90 perhaps?

    Also, when you’ve sampled it, how much better do you think it is than lesser varieties? Lagavulin is one of my favourites, though (perhaps good for me ...) not so many others like it.

    Well I'd love the sherry, but not the peat and smoke ...

    Let us know how you get on.

    I will, probably won't open if for a few days, but I often fail at that. I need to make a dent in the 28 bottles I already have open, before starting another!

    I adore the 16 year old, so can't imagine I won't like this one. Used to just be a total Speyside fanboy for decades, but recently have pushed my palate and the flood gates have opened. Bloody expensive floodgates too!
