Lagavulin Single Malt Scotch

Read 2 Reviews

Takes out the fire, but leaves in the warmth


While this is my second favorite single malt scotch whisky, I would recommend it as the first thing to try for someone who has never ventured into these types of higher end elixirs. Lagavulin provides a soothing blend of sweetness, brine, and smoke that makes it unique among its competitors. Like Laphroaig (my number one), it comes from Islay; however, Lagavulin is a bit more subtle and rounded. While, I like the slightly more intense elements of Laphroaig, Lagavulin softer tone might be better suited for the novice.Drink it in small amounts; straight or perhaps with a slight splash of water, but NEVER with ice.

Deliciosity incarnate.


It's rather expensive, but if you like single malts, you pretty much have to try it.  It's like drinking scotch-flavored peat smoke, only the scotch is made from angels.  Also, if you've ever been nostalgic for the peat fires they burn all over the UK, this should help nicely. I think the first time I tried this, I fell on my knees and thanked God that I was alive.
