1000 ml, 48.0% abv, Scotland (ISLAY)

The first maturation of this special expression is in ex-bourbon barrels, followed by transfer to quarter casks. The third maturation is in large European oak ‘PX’ casks, which originally contained rare Pedro Ximénez sherry. The result is a complex Laphroaig, with the character of each type of barrel detectable in the final flavours, including a gentle but unmistakable sweetness.

“Sherried sweetness and smoky peat … Sea salt and the nutmeg and cinnamon. Aniseed then enters the fray, increasing the intensity of the spiciness of the palate”   Litre Bottle
