Pedro Ximénez, or PX, is a style of sherry wine that is noted for its extreme sweetness. Without going into too much of the production details, PX grapes are dried in the sun prior to being pressed and fermented which concentrates the sugars. Lagavulin, with its bold peaty and salty profile takes on this wine finishing incredibly well and creates an enticing sweet and savory.

Tasting Notes

"This whisky is rich and chewy loaded with cooked fruits. The iodine and smoke waltz in on the finish. Hay, chocolate, and tobacco are found upon more contemplation. The peat smoke is less intense on the palate than the standard 16 year Lagavulin as the beauty of the wine appears to have tamed the beast of a whisky."
