This expression offers an irresistible doubling of flavour due to the double maturation in two casks made of American oak. Still-maturing whisky in Laphroaig's standard ex-bourbon barrels is transferred to quarter casks for further and accelerated maturation. Non-chillfiltered and bottled at 48%.
Nose: Burning embers of peat in a crofter's fireplace, hints of coconut and banana aromas.
Palate: Deep, complex and smoky yet offers and surprises the palate with a gentle sweetness.
Finish: Really long, and dries appropriately with smoke and spice.
