|Spirits Style||Single Malt|
Released in 2018, this 28 year old Laphroaig single malt Scotch whisky was drawn from a selection of cask varieties and then married in sherry casks for 12 months before bottling.
Aged in quarter casks, bourbon barrels, and sherry butts for 27 years, then finished in sherry casks. Red apples and honey on the nose, where the characteristic Laphroaig phenolic attack becomes muted with time. Dried fruit, malt, and vanilla on the palate, along with subtle notes of iodine and warm tar. Developing brine, dark chocolate, and licorice leading into a dry, smoky, peppery finish. Gavin Smith
