Quick Overview

Legendary Islay whisky distiller, Laphroaig, are synonymous for producing some of the world's greatest and most intense single malt whiskies. Their 18 year old expression is made in very limited quantities each year and savoured by a fortunate few. A supple, sweet and spicy Islay peat smoke greets you when you first open the bottle. The immediate taste is an oak sweetness, a contribution from 18 years in the barrel, with a faint hint of ocean salt notes, testimony to its time maturing on the remote island of Islay. The Whisky is non-chill filtered, adding depth of taste and an oily smoothness to the textured, full bodied finish. A classic Islay. Laphroaig 18yo was introduced in 2009 as a replacement for the old 15 year-old. This is a stronger, altogether gutsier affair at 48%. A category winner at the World Whisky Awards 2010.

Details

This 18 Year Old expression of Laphroaig is made in limited quantities each year and savoured by a fortunate few. This expression replaced the fifteen year-old and comes at a higher strength. This is a much more exclusive affair with a powerful punch. Awesome stuff.

Nose: At bottling strength, a soft toffee sweet but faintly spicy flavour counterbalances the trace of delicate phenols and fruit. An all encompassing smoothness brings these together. A touch of water allows the seaweed and salt to come through but not enough to overpower the vanilla and honey sweetness with just a trace of new mown hay and peat at the finish.
Body:

An intense depth that is exceptionally balanced and warming.

Color: Bright Gold
Taste:

An instant warming tang of smoke fades into smooth floral scents, which blends seamlessly into an oaky nuttiness and leaves a lasting sweetness on the taste. With a touch of water, the peaty warmth fills the mouth but does not overshadow the sweet chocolate smoothness. This is balanced by the rich toffee taste and slowly fades into a delicate hint of heather and peat smoke.

Finish:

Full bodied, long with a luxurious oily smoothness.

ABV: 48%
