The Distillers Edition, an annual release of limited quantities in which each of seven fine malts is double-matured in a different type of cask wood, chosen to complement the characteristics of that one mature whisky, and no other. The second maturation takes place in batches, in individually prepared casks that have held a specially selected fortified wine. Each batch takes months to mature and results in a single bottling. Each limited edition bottle is marked with the date of distillation and bottling, and the batch number.
LAGAVULIN DISTILLERS EDITION 2020
This 2005 Lagavulin is double-matured in ex-bodega Pedro Ximenez cask wood for an intense, raisiny sweetness that marries beautifully with the smoky power of the regular release to create a massive, rich tasting power-house of a malt.
TALISKER DISTILLERS EDITION 2020
This 2010 Talisker double-matured in ex-bodega Amoroso cask wood for rich and fruity sweetness that rounds out the peaty, peppery punch of the malty regular release, to create a richly rewarding and deeper style of malt.
