I may have been tasting a newer and not as good bottle of Lag 16, because I found the 1991 to be superior, side-by-side. Nose was peat, brown sugar, salt. The sherry gets more prevalent after a while with a little shoe polish. The palate is smoked bacon, and smoked salmon -- spicy, peppery and hot. The finish is long and salty. Lag 16 was sweeter on the nose in a lighter way with less smoke and less sherry. Seemed thinner on the palate. I liked the distiller's edition more.
