- ABV 48%
Originally introduced in 2009, it superseded the popular 15-year-old, and represented one of the most exciting new Islay releases in years - a welcome (some might say overdue!) return to form for Laphroaig. The extra three years in the cask softens the whisky and ups the complexity. With extended time in barrel the compounds that contribute the peaty, smoky flavours tend to dissipate, allowing more of the wood and barley characteristics to shine through. On the other hand, the rich and sometimes oily mouthfeel derived from the use of peat when producing such whiskies remains.
This release is bottled at the higher strength of 48% bringing it into line with other successful Laphroaig's like 'Quarter Cask' and 'An Cuan Mor' (duty free only bottling).
Other reviews... Rich peaty aromas with nougat, peach creme brulee, and smoky grilled fruits and nuts with a supple, fruity-yet-dry medium-full body and a long melange and fruits, nuts, spice, lit menthol cigarette, and smoky earth peat. Excellent balance and style.

...multi layered smokiness...absolutely brimming with character and panache from the first molecules escaping the bottle as you pour to the very final ember dying on the middle of your tongue.
