Fans of iconic Scotch whiskies will be pleased
to learn that Lagavulin has launched a 10-year old single malt
that will be available exclusively at Dufry duty-free stores in
selected airports across the world.
Described as 'fiery yet light, smoky yet
smooth', the Lagavulin 10-Year Old single malt was crafted at the
world-renowned Lagavulin distillery on Islay's spectacular
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."
Dr Craig Wilson 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."
Lagavulin 10 Year Old is available exclusively
from Dufry Travel Retail stores. It is bottled at 43% with an RRP
of £50 for 70cl.
