Product Information

Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Distillery Bottling 70cl / 42.4%

This is the oldest official Laphroaig ever released. Bottled in 2001 and aged for 40 years in European oak rather than American oak Bourbon casks which are more commonly used today. Not only that in 1960 locally grown barley was malted by hand in the distilleries own malting's.

Tasting Notes

Official Tasting Notes:

The colour is a warm, bright gold, as it comes from the cask.

NOSE: After forty years in the cask, it is gentle on the nose with a full-bodied sweetness. Seville Orange type aromas can be detected deeper into the nosing glass with the occasional honey type bouquet.

With age comes maturity. This unique taste is reminiscent of a sweet liquorice root, with peat and seaweed in the background suggesting its origin from the beautiful hollow by the broad bay. It is surprisingly smooth and gentle on the pallet.

The aftertaste is warming, velvety smooth and just seems to go on and on.
