The 12th batch of the popular Laphroaig Cask Strength series.An Islay single malt that is matured in ex-bourbon barrels, barrier-filtered and bottled at natural distillery strength. This gives a depth of genuine taste and texture normally associated with sampling a whisky at its source.
Nose: Sweet cereals with biscuit notes, fresh oak, smoked cedar and Manuka honey. Amsterdam pipe tobacco, shoe polish and old leather combined with a touch of waxy church candle, vanilla cream, nutmeg and oak extracts.
Palate: Sweet and spicy, with burnt oak staves, barbecued marshmallows, toffee and sea salt, vanilla and Belgium caramel waffles. Roasted coffee fudge cream on sticky toffee pudding, with a hint of white pepper and crushed cinnamon.
Finish: Floral with spicy oak tannins, iodine and sea salt.
