HAD 131: Lagavulin

Hey everyone, today’s episode is about . . . what’s that smell? Oh god, stop recording and get out of the apartment, there’s a fire! Oh, never mind, Chris just opened a bottle of Lagavulin. That’s good, because that’s the topic for the episode. Let’s talk a bit about the history of this amazing distillery and maybe do a little tasting. So get ready for some smoke, as we have a drink

  • Brand: Lagavulin (Diageo)

  • Style:Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky

  • Strength: 43%

  • Other (IBU, description, etc.): Aged in oak casks for at least sixteen years, this much sought-after single malt has the massive peat-smoke that's typical of southern Islay - but also offering a dryness that turns it into a truly interesting dram.
