Laphroaig 16 Year Old “Limited Edition” Islay Single Malt Whisky (750ml)

$139.99

The whisky’s maturation in ex-Bourbon barrels is said to have softened “the famously rich peat smoke” and added flavors of leather and sweet vanilla. John Campbell, Laphroaig distillery manager, said: “Laphroaig 16-year-old is the perfect illustration of how our rich whiskies mellow as they mature. Whilst this expression carries the iconic smoke of Laphroaig, this is married with sweeter notes of honey and caramel, creating a remarkable dram that’s perfect for the long evenings of late summer and into cosier nights of autumn. On the nose, the 16-year-old whisky has notes of sweet leather, oaky spices, vanilla, and wood character, while the palate is sweet with treacle and caramel, Manuka honey and thyme, but also intense wood smoke, creosote, lots of floral notes of heather and bergamot, and a chili mouthfeel”.
