Description

Founded in 1815, the distillery produces “the most richly flavored of all Scotch whiskies” according to its label, and is located in the south of the island, not far from the Lagavulin and Ardbeg distilleries, with which it forms the trio of “Kildalton distilleries”. Its history has been marked by tragic accidents and numerous takeovers, but also by the personality of the famous Bessie Williamson who ran the distillery from 1954 to 1972, one of the few women to work in that capacity. Laphroaig 33-year-old 2021 Ian hunter book 3, This is the third release of the Ian Hunter Series 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 neighbors, over every distillery’s essential lifeblood, its source of water.

Nose: the signature Laphroaig peat is certainly there, but it’s rounded by age. Seawater, elegant charcoal ashes, hints of lemon candy, and bright peaches. Maybe some pineapple. Sweet almonds and whiffs of vanilla pastry. Menthol and embrocations, evolving to floral honey. A little polished wood, old leather, and sheep wool as well. Quite excellent.

Mouth: somehow there’s a rather weak onset, staying silent for a while. After that, it shows lots of beautiful fruity notes. Mango, pineapple, and creamy papaya. However, these are held back a little by a wave of oak, which also brings along peppery notes and ginger. It struggles to show its feathers. Subtle iodine and wax towards the end.

Finish: good length, but slightly drying, with mint, cold ashes, hints of white pepper, and tobacco leaves.
