LAGAVULIN AND THE SINGLETON & SHARP
Distill your holidays with Lagavulin and The Singleton, two very different — but equally refined — single malt Scotch whiskies.
Lagavulin 8 Years Old: Full and Forward
For more than 200 years, Lagavulin has been turning out fine whisky in the signature style of Islay: rich and smoky, thanks to the miles of peat bog for which the Scottish island has become known. In this limited- edition expression, the taste is big and urgent, characterized by fragrant hints of chocolate and lemon with a long, warm finish.
Enjoy a dram of Lagavulin 8 in a Glencairn glass to better draw out the complex smoke-forward flavours
To accentuate the deep chocolate notes of the whisky, try a glass alongside a fine dark chocolate.
This one is a true sipper. It’s best to enjoy Lagavulin 8 neat, or by adding a small splash of water to bring out the flavours.
The Singleton of Dufftown 12 Years Old: Smooth and Subtle
The Singleton of Dufftown is proud to be a single malt for everyone, allowing people to enjoy Scotch the way they want, with no rules. The easygoing 12-year-old is a fine example of the Speyside tradition: fruity, with notes of toasted nuts and baked apples and a lingering, warm finish.
Let the whisky breathe in something stylish but classic, like these stunning rocks glasses by the designer Tom Dixon.
Nuts and dried fruit accentuate its natural flavours. But heck, why not put together a whole charcuterie board to enjoy pre-dinner?
You wouldn’t go wrong adding just a splash of water, but why stop there? This whisky would also make a rather brilliant Singleton Old Fashioned.
