Single Malt

Chilly weather calls for strong, brown spirits. If you're stocking the bar to stay in, we suggest checking out Lagavulin Single Malt, which takes its name from Lagavulin, the Islay, United Kingdom distillery that produces it. The 16-year-old Scotch whisky is known for its intense, peat-smoke aroma and flavor that instantly hits the palate before transitioning into a smooth, sweet finish. Quality stuff like this means you drink it neat—skip the rocks. This is one spirit that should be savored.

$60, at Merwins


Jack Donaghy of 30 Rock is often seen drinking Lagavulin, and it's also been mentioned by Ron Swanson in an episode of Parks & Recreation.
