Laphroaig 18 Year Old Diamond Jubilee Whisky

Description

To celebrate Queen Elizabeths 60th year on the throne, Laphroaig launched a special Diamond Jubilee commemorative edition. Bearing Prince Charles Royal Warrant, the 3000 Jubilee cartons and bottles are already collectors items. Age: 18 years old 48% ABV / 70cl Bottle Number: One of only 3,000 bottles released.   Nose: At bottling strength, a soft toffee sweet but faintly spicy flavour counterbalances the trace of delicate phenols and fruit. An all encompassing smoothness brings these together. A touch of water allows the seaweed and salt to come through but not enough to overpower the vanilla and honey sweetness with just a trace of new mown hay and peat at the finish. Palate: An instant warming tang of smoke fades into smooth floral scents, which blends seamlessly into an oaky nuttiness and leaves a lasting sweetness on the taste. With a touch of water, the peaty warmth fills the mouth but does not overshadow the sweet chocolate smoothness. This is balanced by the rich toffee taste and slowly fades into a delicate hint of heather and peat smoke. Finish: Full bodied, long with a luxurious oily smoothness.
