|Nose||The sensation is toffee and caramel, caused by the vanillas and tannins of the American oak, plus a dryness from the wood oil.|
|Taste||Deep, complex and smoky yet offers and surprises the palate with a gentle sweetness.|
|Finish||Long and alternates between this sweetness and smoke.|
This Laphroaig expression offers an irresistible doubling of flavour due to the double maturation in two casks made of American oak.
Still-maturing whisky from standard ex-bourbon barrels is transferred to quarter casks and left to rest in their warehouse just a stone's throw from the Atlantic shore. This process ensures increased contact with the oak, creating a soft and velvety edge to complement Laphroaig's distinctive peatiness.
