Laphroaig, 18 yr old, Single Malt Scotch Whisky

Laphroaig, 18 yr old, Single Malt Scotch Whisky

This 18 year old expression of Laphroaig is made in limited quantities each year. A soft, sweet and spicy Islay peat smoke greets you when you first open the bottle. The immediate taste is an oak sweetness, from 18 years in the barrel. A faint hint of the sea can be detected, testimony to its time maturing on the remote island of Islay. Bottled at 48% ABV and non-chill filtered for a depth of taste and texture.

Tasting Notes:

To taste this malt whisky add a few drops of water to help awaken the bouquet of the malt and bring out the aromatics.

COLOUR : Bright Gold.

NOSE : At bottling strength, a soft toffee sweet but faintly spicy flavour counterbalances the trace of delicate phenols and fruit. An all encompassing smoothness brings these together. A touch of water allows the seaweed and salt to come through but not enough to overpower the vanilla and honey sweetness with just a trace of new mown hay and peat at the finish.

BODY : An intense depth that is exceptionally balanced and warming.

TASTE : An instant warming tang of smoke fades into smooth floral scents, which blends seamlessly into an oaky nuttiness and leaves a lasting sweetness on the taste. With a touch of water, the peaty warmth fills the mouth but does not overshadow the sweet chocolate smoothness. This is balanced by the rich toffee taste and slowly fades into a delicate hint of heather and peat smoke.

FINISH : Full bodied, long with a luxurious oily smoothness.
