Product details

Tasting note

  • Appearance : Or vif.
  • Nose : D’un classicisme pur dans lequel on distingue de la tourbe, des cendres, du chocolat noir et des fleurs blanches. Évolue sur le riz au lait et les épices (cannelle, muscade). Le second nez révèle la paille humide, l’orge maltée, les sous-bois (champignons, mousse). Empyreumatique et salin.
  • Palate : Ferme, puissante. Les épices (poivre noir) donnent le tempo. Elles sont suivies de près par des zestes d’orange, des notes végétales (chicorée, agave) et par une touche de grésil. Puis, d’autres agrumes font leur entrée en jeu (pamplemousse, citron) en même temps que des fruits frais (melon, fraise).
  • Overall : Onctueuse, charnue. La fève de cacao, le cumin, la noix fraîche et les fruits confits (abricot, pêche) sont mis en valeur par une tourbe vanillée. Gourmande, elle se montre même pâtissière à l’instar du verre vide qui respire la frangipane.
The brand

The brand

Due to its phenolic character, Laphroaig is well-known among amateurs. It’s no surprise then that the distillery owns its own peat bog, capable of guaranteeing the supply of peat for the next 4,000 years. Laphroaig will never lose its character nor, consequently, its fans and its critics – since such a peaty malt cannot be loved unanimously – even its water, drawn from the Loch Kilbride spring, is filtered through peat!

Merchant

Established in Glasgow in 1948 by Fred Douglas Laing, the Douglas Lang company has, in recent years, made numerous changes to its structure. Fred Laing’s movement to the head of the company has contributed towards the business’s sound reputation. Known throughout the industry for the quality and variety of its cask selection (Douglas Laing still has casks from the most prestigious distilleries: Glenfarclas, Talisker, Ardbeg, etc.), the company has expanded its already rich range that includes historic selections such as Double Barrel, Premier Barrel and Director’s Cut, with two new collections guaranteed to please connoisseurs: Single Minded and Old Particular.

The line

Launched in 1998, the Old Malt Cask range, consisting of 50 casks, was bottled to celebrate the 50th anniversary of this family-run business. Today more than a hundred releases are permanently available. Most of these are single casks that have been bottled without colouring or filtering and contain 50% ABV; they are considered to be the ‘golden strength’ by purists. In addition to the traditional releases at 50% ABV, there are some cask strength bottlings, created especially for La Maison du Whisky.
