ABV: 53.9%
This little Laphroaig gem was distilled in 1998 and aged in two ex-bourbon barrels. Bottled at cask strength, it promises a classically punchy, medicinal Islay dram with bags of juicy tropical fruit. 442 bottles produced. Very limited stocks.

Notes from the bottlers... NOSE Peat, antiseptic, a little iodine. Fruit and florals as well; pineapple, under-ripe banana, violets and cracked black pepper. With water, there's vanilla, applesauce and some dried lemon peel. PALATE Full-bodied with well-integrated peat. Heaps of aromatic grapefruit, honeydew melon, ginger, hoppy bitterness, plumes of firewood smoke, dark chocolate and oak chips. FINISH More exotic flavours await; the ashes from a bonfire is accompanied by coconut and banana yoghurt. 53.9% Alc./Vol.
