Laphroaig Debuts Special Edition in U.S. Market for First Time

Jack Bettridge
Posted: June 24, 2011

(continued from page 1)

Aroma: The nose starts out tight, then releases a flowery Bourbon character with hard candy and vanilla. Typical Laphroaig peat lingers in the wings, not as dominant as you would expect from a whisky of such young age.

Palate: Lights up in the mouth with campfire notes, licorice, exotic candy, sweet mint, butter, oranges and a layering of sugar and spice.

Finish: The finish goes on and on, first recalling the bright orange and then turning toasty.
