A gorgeous 2014 release from Laphroaig which has been matured for 25 years in both first-fill Oloroso Sherry casks and ex-American bourbon barrels, and then bottled at cask strength. Nose: Peat and smoke, with a tang of citrus. Refreshing grapefruit balanced out with sweet chocolate. Palate: Sweet fruits, banana and caramel. A spice, warming ginger and cinnamon. A subtle hit of salt. Finish: Medium-long finish, smoky with a spicy kick.
