Sherry matured Laphroaigs come along as often as honoured election pledges from politicians. This is a wonderful opportunity to try a sherry matured example from this great distillery. With more sweetness, richness and greater emphasis on concentrated notes of tar, tobacco, iodine, sarsaparilla and liquorice this is a minor peaty masterpiece from the ever dependable Douglas Laing.
