lagavulin   16

The “Smoky Cokey” cocktail tastes exactly how it sounds, and that’s a good thing
Via Ben -- here's a bunch of critics going nuts about a fecking whiskey and coke.

'The 'Smoky Cokey' [...] is a Coca-Cola that tastes smoky thanks to the addition of peaty scotch.
Specifically, the drink as it was explained to me requires Lagavulin 16, a scotch that sells for around $75 a bottle in the United States.

My god the critics go overboard with this:

'the rich smoke and intensity of Lagavulin is beautifully countered by the sweet vanilla and gentle spices of the cola'

'I actually like to make mine with Mexican Coke when I have one handy, because I find the extra sweetness works even better with the fairly aggressive peatiness of something like a Lagavulin'

'There’s something about the sherry notes present in the Lagavulin that makes it really sing when drowned in high fructose corn syrup'

My theory is that this is a marketing wheeze devised by Diageo PR to garner a bit of clickbait....

Lange gisting, lange distillatierondes en lange rijping verzekeren Lagavulin van een diep, rijk, turfachtig karakter. Het is een drank die de tijd neemt. De ultieme Islay malt eist niet minder.

The southern distilleries - Ardbeg, Laphroaig, Lagavulin, Port Ellen (the latter was closed in 1983) - are the most powerful, producing medium-bodied whiskies, saturated with peat-smoke, brine and iodine. Not only do these disilleries use heavily peated m
