This whisky is really Islay hammer. When you nose it, when you taste it, you feel the soul of Scotland, the soul of Islay. You will be amazed how complex, vibrant, balanced liquid we have selected. Of course you will find everything you expect from peated, smoky Laphroaig whisky.
In Scandinavian myths, YGGDRASIL ash was the axis of the world, the roots of which were in the underworld, while the crown of the tree on a huge, lofty trunk reached the heavens.
The Romans believed that snakes were afraid of crawling into the shadow cast by this tree, hence the later common belief that ash trees chase away “evil powers” and the old custom of planting these trees at the crossroads where the devil was waiting for stray travelers.
- Colour: gold,
- Nose: honey, smoked bacon, leather, pine, old forest, paper magazines, fresh cut wood, hibiscus tea, lemons, seawater, barbecue
- Mouth: great combination of peat and fruit, smoky but very well balanced, 45,1% can go straight very well also with few drops of water – water opens more herbal vibes, plum and smoked bacon,
- Finish: medium, fresh, salty in a good way like sea salt, fat,
Comment: pure joy for all peat and smoke lovers, this is not just peat and smoke Laphroaig – it gives also grapes, lemon and plums fruitiness. Soul of Islay.
