|Spirits Type||Scotch Whisky|
|Spirits Style||Single Malt|
The spirit is a mingling of whiskies selected from prime examples comprising all of the different types of oak they are aged in. This marriage is finished for six months in new American oak in the warmest part of their warehouses through the Scottish summer. Take all the things you love about Laphroaig and put them on steroids. This will certainly please the legions of dedicated imbibers that follow this brand.
Nose: Classic, medicinal peat notes up front, supported by citrus-y, chocolate-y sweet notes and soft barley.
Palate: The peat is there, but it's taking it easy and letting the bright notes of lemon, green apples and mint stand out. Darker baking spice notes develop further on.
Finish: Medium length, peat remaining in sight until it's over.
Overall: It doesn't pack a huge punch of peat, which might be just the ticket for introducing someone to the wonders of Islay's smoky expressions.
