I think they may just handpick the casks with the most distinctive Talisker flavor and give them the DE designation. The cream of the crop more or less. Unfortunately, it's not cheap.
The Distiler's Edition is finished in an Amontillado sherry task. I have a bottle of the 1992/2005 edition, and for that year I actaully find the pepper is a bit more gentle, almost muted by the sherry. It is a very nice and rich dram, with some added complexity, depending upon my mood and the actual "sip" I find differnt elements dominate. A very good dram in my eyes, not a great dram.
