Product Description

A vibrant young Laphroaig whose maturation has been accelerated by ageing in quarter casks. This shows soft sweetness and a velvety feel when first tasted, then the intense peatiness so unique to Laphroaig comes bursting through. A terrific whisky and great value.

Tasting Notes

Tasting Notes

  • Tasting Notes by Dr. Whisky

    • Seductive smells. Ripe, new-make barley sweetness. A barbecue. A flower. A sooty chimney. A horse. A can of condensed milk. A slice of apple and a piece of Gouda. An amazingly tactile nose, if that makes sense; the aromas seem to make physical contact, they touch me.

      Oak. Fruit. Grandparents' musty apartments. Soft impact that is very sensual and easy at the higher-than-normal abv%. Toffee and stubbed cigarettes. Nutty cheesiness. Slow arrival of a huge peaty impact and a cloud of smoke. Smoky finish with biscuity chewiness hanging around.

      SUMMARY: An absolute treat to drink. Full-on and not for every mood, but hearty as a good stew. A sweeter, softer, friendlier Laphroaig that still manages to fill every corner of the house of your senses with the medicinal peatiness in ways that only Laphroaig can. And should. And does.

  • Tasting Notes by TF

    • Nose

      Powerful smoke, sweet malt, wet turf, coal. Develops chocolate & cinnamon.

    • Palate

      Full-bodied, rich and mouth-coating. Delicious sweet gristy malt and rich peat, woodsmoke. The coal appears mid-palate.

    • Finish

      Very long, sweet and smoky, with the coal lingering longest.

    • Comment

      A belter. Denser and deeper than the 10 yr-old. Very more-ish.

    Fresh hot tarmac on the approach, with a lasting lick of honey. Will that do? Hope that doesn't sound like I'm showing off. Pure pleasure.

    Big D,

    Well this is brilliant. As much as I like the 10 year old this kind of blows it away. The extra 8 percent ABV has a huge effect. the quarter cask effect adds a definite sweetness and maturity thats not evident in the 10.
