A vibrant young Laphroaig released in 2004, this bottling was aged for around five years before being finished in a quarter cask for several months, the size of the cask is quite small, thus it does not require as long of a maturation. This shows soft sweetness and a velvety feel when first tasted, then the intense peatiness, so unique to Laphroaig, comes bursting through. A terrific whisky and great value.

Appearance: Glistening golden yellow in colour.

Nose: Oily and buttery nose, with toffee, nuttiness, hickory, bicarbonate of soda, rum and raisin ice cream and zest.

Palate: Big rush of sweetness, in fact, it’s an explosion of sweetness, with fiery chilli heat, TCP, sweet cereals and a touch of cola syrup.

Finish: Medium-length, but becomes fruity, with custard and cigar smoke.
