This beautiful expression is drawn from an octave cask exclusively for us. This cask is 1/8th of the size of a regular sherry butt and facilitates a much faster maturation, catalysing more flavour uptake and giving a more intense spirit.
It has a wonderfully pale amber colour imparted by the oak cask, and retains some of the characteristic Laphroaig traits; namely, a big helping of smokiness in the finish. With a natural cask-imparted colour, and arriving at a cask strength of 52.9%, this has a strong depth of character and is packed with subtle flavours.
With notes of coal tar, barbeque'd meat, this dram has an oily texture full of sweetness and saltiness. One that is equally for Laphroaig fans as much as it is for those looking for something truly out of the ordinary.
