Introducing a whisky as legendary as the man it is named after. This is the third book in the Ian Hunter Story, containing a rare and aged 33 year old Laphroaig single malt whisky. This whisky is presented in a beautifully crafted book that documents a section of Ian’s rich legacy. Every year a new chapter is told, uncovering the extensive history behind Laphroaig and the characters who created it. This chapter tells the story of the competition between neighbours over every distillery’s essential ingredient, water. This expression was fully matured in ex-bourbon barrels, is free from chill filtration, and comes at 49.9% abv.
The result is a sensational Laphroaig single malt. Aromas of pears, peaches and apricots open this elegant whisky, followed by notes of honey, nutmeg, and a twist of peat. The taste gives a sweet, syrupy feel, with waves of aniseed and creamy liquorice notes. The finish is very long, with lingering ashy vanilla and peaty flavours. A meticulously made, showstopping whisky.
