2015 is the 200th anniversary of Laphroaig Distillery, located on Islay. To commemorate this most festive occasion, they have released this very rare bottling of its blue fire-peated whisky that's taken a healthy nap in ex-Oloroso sherry casks. These were selected for this release by Distillery Manager John Campbell.

Tasting Notes

"Concentrated bursts of candied apples, dried figs, dates, rich toffee, cinnamon and vanilla welcome the palate with puffs of woody smoke. Adding a drop of water opens these flavors up, with its sweet smokiness wafting delicately around the glass. Layers of ocean brine and the distillery's signature medicinal element, give the impression of a seaside bonfire. A faint grapefruit zest binds it all together, and the sherried notes never overpower the true character of the whisky. In all, a very fitting way to celebrate 200 years of delicious whisky-making!"
