Laphroaig 18 Year Old, 70cl
£359.00 inc. VAT where applicable
Laphroaig 18 Year Old was the flagship expression of the Laphroaig distillery and was highly regarded for its exceptional quality and unique peaty character. Unfortunately, it was discontinued in 2016, which has made it increasingly rare and difficult to find in the market.
The 18-year maturation period of this whisky allowed it to develop a well-balanced and complex flavour profile, with the characteristic peat smoke and maritime influence that Laphroaig whiskies are known for.
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.
PALATE: 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.
