Laphroaig Lore Single Malt Scotch Whisky
|Category||Single Malt Scotch|
|Region||United Kingdom, Scotland, Islay|
By maturing the liquid in small batches in five unique casks, we create a liquid that is rich, complex, varied and above all storied. We have created a Laphroaig whisky which uses different aged liquids ranging from 7 to 21 years, allowing us to create the richest possible Laphroaig flavour. As the name suggests, this new offering from Laphroaig is inspired by the knowledge and traditions passed down from generation to generation of its distillery managers, blenders and craftsmen. This whisky was also named 2019 Best No Age Statement Scotch by Jim Murray's Whisky Bible. Rich and smoky nose with seaside minerals and a hint of ash and bitter chocolate drops. Full bodied with a short, dry finish and a long sweet aftertaste. Richly peaty with a spicy chilli bite on the palate.
This Islay single malt is all about the peat. Golden in the glass, the distinctly smoky scent hints at vanilla and honey underneath. Expect a big billow of smoke from the first sip, underpinned by subtle hints of honey, vanilla and sherry sweetness. The concentrated peat smoke leads right into the drying finish, plus hints of black pepper, iodine and spearmint astringency.
