Description

This expression offers an irresistible doubling of flavour due to the double maturation in two casks made of American oak.

Still-maturing whisky from the standard ex-bourbon barrels is transferred to quarter casks and left to rest in our warehouse just a stone’s throw from the Atlantic shore.

This process represents Laphroaig breathing new life into a once-defunct tradition: the use of the smaller cask size, which ensures increased contact with the oak, creating a soft and velvety edge to complement Laphroaig’s distinctive peatiness.

Nose

Burning embers of peat in a crofter’s fireplace, hints of coconut and banana aromas.

Body

Full bodied.

Palate

Deep, complex and smoky yet offers and surprises the palate with a gentle sweetness.

Finish

Really long, and dries appropriately with smoke and spice.
