The third chapter in Laphroaig’s Ian Hunter Storybook. The oldest Laphroaig released for twenty years, this malt has been aged for 33 Years in refill ex-Bourbon barrels. Bottled at natural cask strength of 49.9%. Creamy liquorice notes with Laphroaig‘s characteristic peatiness shining through.
Distillery note: The third release of the Ian Hunter Series is to celebrate the legacy of the last of the Johnston family to own and manage the Laphroaig distillery, and his fight to protect the Kilbride Stream. This is a story of uncompromising guardianship and a battle between neighbours, over every distillery’s essential lifeblood, its source of water.
Nose: Pears, peaches then apricots and lots of condensed sweetness open this delicious and vintage Laphroaig up. Followed by notes of honey and rose petal, a dash of nutmeg, and finishing with ashy-dry peat
Taste: A sweet, syrupy, fruity mouthfeel to start, it climbs and coats the whole of your palate. It dips to a huge second wave of aniseed, followed by creamy liquorice notes.
Finish: A very long finish with lingering, alternating ashy vanilla and peaty aromas.
