A single-cask bottling of 1997 vintage Laphroaig bottled by Berry Bros & Rudd exclusively for The Whisky Exchange. This shows classic Laphroaig peaty notes, but with a whack of tropical fruit, too. This was a big hit at The Whisky Show 2015.Tasting Notes (1)

Tasting notes by Billy A
Sea spray, beach bonfires and lashings of fruit – lime, mango, pear, passion fruit and maybe even a hint of banana. The fruit sweetness sits under a layer of sharp citrus peel and fresh bandages.
It starts with a big coastal hit of crashing waves, damp stones and rock pools, and then the fruit arrives. The fruit bowl from the nose backed up by burning logs, coal dust and an unexpectedly rich backbone of vanilla cream.
Classic Laphroaig medicinal notes lead – iodine and sticking plasters – before liquorice, menthol, leafy tarragon and sweet anise roll-in and fade away.
A super-fruity Laphroaig with a big kick of the distillery’s traditional medicinal nature, but perfectly balanced with out either taking the upper hand. The smoke is very much in the background, but provides an excellent contrast which adds yet another layer of complexity. A good dram.

TROPICAL FRUIT DELIGHT! BOTTLESHARE WAS A HIT WITH THIS. TASTE LIKE A NICELY AGED DALMORE WITH ALL THE PINEAPPLE AND TANGERINE NOTES.
This tasted similar to the OB Laphroaig CS 2nd batch but with a more mature side and heavy notes of mango pudding/pineapple puree.
out of stock in a day..maybe the price was fair enough and thought of raising it up... anyway a great whisky with lovely mixed tropical and bourbony fruity notes that are in perfect balance with a more mature and sophisticated laphroaig peatiness
