Description

Laphroaig 18year old was introduced in 2009 as a replacement for the old 15 Year Old. This is a stronger affair at 48%.  This is Laphroaig at it´s best, the 18 Year Old represents the character of the distillery like no other bottling. The 18 years in the cask took a bit of the alcohol edge and therefore added some nice complexity.

Nose

Sweet, with woodsmoke, soot, wet stones, hay, honey and maritime notes.

Pallete

Burnt wood, black pepper, barley sugar and roasted cereals, with an underlying honey note.

Finish

Surprisingly smooth and restrained, but though still assertive
