Type: Single Malt
Region: Scotland – Islay
Strength: 48% alc/vol
A vibrant young Laphroaig whose maturation has been accelerated by ageing in quarter casks. This shows soft sweetness and a velvety feel when first tasted, then the intense peatiness so unique to Laphroaig comes bursting through. A terrific whisky and great value.
Nose: Maritime. Kipper-like, orange peel thrown on a barbecue, peat oil, tar, slightly sooty. Ever changing mix of dry, perfumed and sweet.
Palate: Starts soft and fruity, then peat. Medicinal peatiness balanced by caramelised sweetness.
Finish: Oatcake. Expansive and complex.
