Lagavulin 10 Year Old Travel Retail Exclusive

Here is one for the Lagavulin fans amongst you to look out for on your travels, Diageo has released a Lagavulin 10 Year Old expression, a new single malt that will be available exclusively at Dufry duty-free stores in selected airports across the world.

Bottled at 43% ABV and described as a 'fiery yet light, smoky yet smooth' single malt it has a RRP of 50 for a 70cl, which isn't too bad although it would have been better if they had presented it in a 1 litre bottle for a few pounds more but and I am still sure that it will be popular with travellers who enjoy a peaty dram.

The man behind the whisky, Diageo's master of malts Dr Craig Wilson, said: "Many people see Lagavulin as the definitive Islay malt and, like other members of the family, this new expression has a charming exuberance and full-on character. It is rich, intense and smoky, having spent time in American Oak casks, while a creamy smoothness and hint of spice shines through from its maturation in first-fill ex-bourbon casks."

Craig added: "This is a whisky filled with surprising contrasts. On the palate, Lagavulin 10 Year Old is sweet and salty at first, before it builds to a fiery crescendo with a spicy and smoky finish that is both intense and warming. It's best enjoyed neat or with water, which helps unlock some of the deeper layers of flavour."

As I said this is a travel exclusive release so if you have no plans to travel in the near future not to worry you can still find the current Lagavulin range available from specialist online whisky retailers such as The Whisky Exchange, The Whisky Shop and Master of Malt
