Hunter Laing
Aged for almost exactly 14 years, this Laphroaig from Hunter Laing's Old Malt Cask series was distilled in April 2000 and bottled in April 2014. It's a classic Laphroaig, matching up seaweedy peat and sweetness, with a touch of dried fruit thanks to its maturation in a refill sherry butt.

Tasting Notes:
Tasting notes by Billy A

Nose: Coffee cake and coal smoke, cream and earthy, loamy peat. Very soft, with some briny notes sneaking in around the edges, leading to a fairly savoury character.

Palate: Creamy texture, with sweet earth and well-integrated peat smoke. Sweetness fades into peat, giving a balanced dram with strong Laphroaig character. Spice builds with medicinal notes and milk chocolate, and spice rolls in – clove, anise and cinnamon – with green leafy notes and spicy smoke.

Finish: Medicinal tinged smoke, gravelly minerality, sweet dark chocolate, anise and woody spice.

Comment: A dark and rich nose compliments and lighter, zestier body, backed up by earthy peat and chocolate notes.

Producer's Notes

Nose: Initially sweet with vanilla, sultanas and raisins, and a slight peatiness.

Palate: Smooth and creamy with vanilla, peat, seaweed and sherry notes.

Finish: Long, lingering and dry, with peat smoke and oak.
