Laphroaig 18 years

Laphroaig 18

A “bang” of flavours!

October tasting session hero of the night is definitely this 18 years Laphroaig.

A “bang” of flavours pretty unique, round and complex, confirmed in mouth and finish.

Here is tasting notes from the distillery master:

  • Nose:Very big. This is a beast of a whisky, with a breakfast character (granary toast, salty butter, a touch of orange juice and coffee). After a while of nosing it you’ll start to get banana loaf, developing alongside the applewood smoke, perhaps even cocoa too.
  • Palate:Very rounded and thick. Golden Syrup? Salt spray, fiery wood spices, dark and brooding peat, star anise, dark chocolate and stewed prunes.
  • Finish:Very long, with liquorice, Seville orange marmalade, salty butter and kippers.

Come and enjoy it next time with us!
