Lagavulin 16-Year-Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky

"When Lagavulin 16 Year Old joined the Classic Malts portfolio in 1989, the belief within owner UD [now Diageo] was that it would be the single malt which only the most dedicated – even crazy – drinker would attempt to conquer. Smoke, it was felt in those early days of single malt, was a step too far for most people. Today, the world has fallen in love with smoke and Lagavulin’s complex mix of seashore and moor, pipe smoke, Lapsang Souchong, bog myrtle, and rich dark fruits is a destination for many." —producer

"Clear brilliant gold color. Delicate, fruity, roasted aromas of toasty nut brittle and apricot pastry with a satiny, vibrant, dry-yet-fruity medium body and a warming, stimulating, medium-long char-roasted nuts and peat, dried apricot and citrus, and pepper finish. A spot on Islay with well balanced and approachable smoke and generous fruit." —Beverage Testing Institute

"Soy sauce, olive brine, peat, honey, oloroso Sherry, brewer's yeast, bread dough, barley malt and cigar smoke in the bouquet. The flavor that magically includes the innate intense peatiness of Islay malts and the masterly employment of oak barrels phase defines 'classy Islay.' Concludes sweetly, without sacrificing the tangy, astringent peatiness that is inherent. Gorgeous. Best Buy." —Paul Pacult, Wine Enthusiast Magazine

Roullet VSOP Grande Champagne Cognac

"This cognac has a deep golden color with amber shades. A complex bouquet with aromas of citrus, peach, sandal wood and light leather notes. The taste is round and well-balanced with silk tannins." - producer

Remy Martin VSOP Cognac

"Dominant notes of vanilla thanks to longer ageing in French Limousin oak barrels, followed by ripe apricot, baked apple, and an elegant floral note. A perfect harmony between the firm character of ripe fruit and subtle notes of liquorice, offering a great complexity of elegant and powerful aromas. Well-balanced, structured, and multi-layered, it combines the roundness of ripe fruit with a silky texture." —producer
