Distillation is an indispensable method of alcohol production, and it is also a major field of alcohol development.Whiskey is one of the most well-known spirits in the world. At present, at least 23 countries are producing whiskey. Among them, the largest and most well-known whisky producing areas are mainly Scotland, Ireland, the United States, Japan and Canada.Scotch whisky is known as the "British National Wine", but in order to become a Scotch whisky, it must be distilled in Scotland, and the degree of distillation must not be higher than 94.8%, and then it must be aged in oak barrels for more than 3 years.For a long time, Scotch whisky has been made of malted barley.In terms of classification, Scotch whisky can be divided into five main categories, namely: single malt whiskey, single grain whiskey, blended malt whiskey, blended grain whiskey, blended whiskey.Recently, according to the Scotch Whisky Association:In 2015, the total export volume of Scotch whisky reached 1.16 billion bottles, which means that 34 bottles of whiskey are shipped from Scotland every second. In terms of total exports, France is the largest market for Scottish bulk whiskey.Today, I will take stock of the list of the top ten whisky brands in the world.The first one LagavulinLagavulin is often said to be one of Aire's "three big". The other two are Ardbeg and Laphroaig, which are also the ‘three big’s with a milder peat smoky flavor. These three are the most common and familiar peat-flavored whiskies on Islay.Lagavulin's predecessor was Kildalton, which was built in 1816. The founder John Johnston later also bought the Ardmore next door. Aire’s Ardmore was discontinued in 1835 and was later incorporated into Lagavulin.The ownership of Lagavulin was transferred to John Crawford Graham in 1852 and then to James Logan Mackie & Co. in 1867.After the company boss James Logan passed away in 1889, the ownership was passed on to his nephew Peter. The name of Peter Mackie may be less well known, but his White Horse blended whisky is well-known. The original wine of Lagavulin is one of the important base wines of the White Horse whiskey issued by Peter in 1890.Lagavulin Lagavulin winery, located near the port of Ellen, is the most special of all distilled on Islay. It has the appearance of a pear row and is near the forest port. The water from the distillery passes through the flowing river and carries it in the process. A lot of peat, and the onion-type unique distiller is used to brew the wine. The wine produced has a strong peat and masculine taste of sea water, and has more complexity and delicate taste changes. A masterpiece of Ray Island.Lagavulin means the valley where the factory is located. The Lagavulin distillery was built on Islay in the middle of the 18th century. The whiskey of Islay is the Sugaran whiskey, with the most complex taste and the strongest taste. Many different elements make the Lagavulin winery special, especially the peat of Islay, which is made of pine trees, grasses, and periwinkles that grow in the swamp zone, and is also affected by seagrass. With the influence of the waves, because the sea sand is rich in salt, the water quality of the peat begins to show a complex peat, iodine and sea salty taste, in the taste of the wine.Lagavulin is now part of Diageo and a member of Diageo "Classic Malts". The entry version of most wineries is generally ten or twelve years old, but the entry version of Lagavulin is 16 years old.Lagavulin 16 yo, 43%Odor: sea breeze, candied fruit, smoked, oyster, citrus, metalFlavors: sea water, caramel, chocolate, smoked, raisinsEnding rhyme: medium length, dark chocolate, charred wood, spicesConclusion: The smell is mild, and each smell is very soft and comfortable.
