This Single Malt was distilled at Laphroaig distillery in 1996 and aged for more than 24 years in a refill hogshead and then a further nine years in an ex-bourbon barrel, yielding a total of 217 bottles. Saline-yet-juicy and amply intensified by the effects of gentle Islay smoke, this Laphroaig is an interestingly robust dram with a softer side. from the isle of Islay
Official Tasting Notes
Nose - A full seafood barbecue at first – mackerel and herring. Next, a touch of well diluted TCP is immediately pushed aside by the juicier aroma of grape tomatoes. A just-extinguished tobacco-and-vanilla candle lends some delicate smoke.
Palate - The coastal quality is still there, but smothered in sweet and flavourful Marie Rose sauce. Fresh mussels with a squeeze of calamansi juice are served with crusty, ashy bread, baked in a wood-fire oven.
Finish - Beachy, hazy smoke with a shadow of stone fruit. Lastly, a creamy banana milkshake stays on, with a touch of Madagascan vanilla.
