Product Description

An 8 year old under the title "Weaving wondrous dreams" from the Scotch malt whisky society and specially released for the 2018 Feis Ile and bottled at an impressive 62.2% ABV

Nose: Coastal and big, with powerful scented foliage notes, it’s all pine needles, spruce and mezcal. A bitter, tarry quality sits alongside salty beach pebbles and gauze, while lemon oil gives a lift. As it sits in the glass, a sweeter side is allowed to develop – all lemon-spiked vanilla cream.

Palate: Very typically Laphroaig, and surprisingly not as spicy as the abv would have you believe. Iodine, tar and soot, the dying embers of a peat kiln. There’s a distinct sweetness too, in saccharine, lemon zest and green apple skin.

Finish: Lengthy, full-frontal smoke.

Conclusion Youthful? Yes. Powerful? Yes, but it’s still a wicked, punchy beast of a dram.
