Lagavulin "double matured" Pedro Ximinez finish
Regarding the Lagavulin "double matured" Pedro Ximinez finish, I bought the 1984 version at the Oslo airport tax free shop in august (appr £30). I must say its probably the finest whisky I ever tasted - a whole lot of "standard" Lagavulin in there (16 YO is, IMHO, probably the finest "standard issue" whisky of any destillery), only more (the best way I can describe it here at my office without a glass at hand). Recently I bought the 1986 version at the same airport (again appr £30), and I look forward to comparing the the two (still a wee dram or two left in the 1984 bottle). I haven't seen any tasting notes for any of these "vintages", but Michael Jackson tasted the 1979 version in his book and awarded it no less than 95 points (the only one in the book matching the Lagavulin 16 YO, as far as I can see). Can anyone point me to notes for the 1984 and 1986 - or, even better, has anyone experienced these and other versions of the Lagavulin "double matured" Pedro Ximinez finish??
