The boldest and most badass Whisky of all time.

If you ever wondered where Lagavulin got its name, it's pretty straightforward: it's the name of the bay near one of the oldest distilleries in Scotland. Since then, the lavish and peaty water that runs down the nearby hills has been the blood of the distillery and its Whiskies.

While Lagavulin is known for pretty awesome expressions, this time they outdid themselves and created a Single Malt so intense and smoky, Bruce Willis called and asked if he can be its sidekick. The Lagavulin's peated barley has 20 times more exposure to peat smoke - it's like an office in Mad Men - and the Whisky is distilled twice, for 14 hours in total. This unbelievably smoky Spirit is then aged for 16 years in old school oak casks, and after that, it gets a fine PX Sherry finish. We don't know about you, but just writing this makes our mouth water. It's sweet caramel, vanilla and dates with a healthy dose of smoke. It's so intense you'll wear a knowing grin for a week.

Single malt stands for around 10% of the Scotch market. This is a malt containing only one grain, legally required to be barley in Scotland, and made at a single distillery.

A blended Scotch is a combination of different malts from different distilleries. It is typically made from grain Whisky but does include malt Whisky to give it a more complex body.
Scotland is home to more than 20 million casks of maturing Whisky. That’s four for every person living there. Nuts!
90% of all Scotch Whisky released in the market is a blend. That’s a hell of a lot.
Scotch Whisky is seldom aged in new barrels. Bourbon and Tennessee Whiskey casks are usually used for maturation. In addition to that, Whisky is often matured or finished in various wine casks such as Sherry or Port.
Categories of Scotch Whisky: Single malt, Blended malt (formerly called Vatted malt), blended, single grain and blended grain Scotch.
Is Scotch always Scottish? What do you think? Yes. The answer is yes.
