Laphroaig 32 Year
Peated Single Malt
Laphroaig // Islay, Scotland
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.
Peated Single Malt100% malted barley from a single distillery. Dried with peat.
Cask Typeex-Oloroso sherry
"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!"
