Product details

Tasting note

  • Appearance : Jaune doré à reflets verts.
  • Nose : Charmeur à souhait, précis. La tourbe est là avec une rare finesse. Elle se dirige vers des contrées marines (sel, embruns, coquillages), épicées (cannelle, cardamome), vers d’onctueuses notes médicinales (bonbon pour la toux, huile de ricin), vers du café au lait et de la noix de coco.
  • Palate : Vive, tonique. La tourbe se fait plus dominatrice. Tout ce qui émane d’elle lui voue une dévotion sans faille : les cendres, la fumée, la paille humide, l’orge maltée, la coriandre, le clou de girofle, les fruits qu’ils soient frais ou exotiques, les fleurs blanches…
  • Overall : Longue, interminable. Le goudron est son apanage. En même temps, elle inonde le palais de lait de coco et d’amandes vertes. Sa fumée évoque celle d’un havane puissant tandis que le citron confit, la menthe poivrée et la lavande forment un triptyque extrêmement harmonieux.
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!

Although the independent bottler Signatory Vintage cannot claim to be one of the oldest in Scotland, it has managed to build up an extremely solid reputation amongst the great malt connoisseurs. The creator of the famous range The Prestonfield and many other well-known ranges, it is best known for its un-chillfiltered and cask strength bottlings that offer amateurs the chance to enjoy their whisky in its most natural form. It was also one of the first independent bottlers to acquire a distillery and now offers a growing number of expressions of one of the most artisan single malts available.

The line

Baptised ‘Artist’, this new range makes no bones about proclaiming its identity. Cosmopolitan and contemporary, it draws its inspiration from the style that gave the Italian bottlings of the 60s and 70s their cult following. From the choice of whiskies (distillery, ageing process, age, strength, bottling procedure) to the design of the bottle and choice of label, every detail has been carefully considered. This range offers a fine presentation of both the whiskies and the artist whose works have been selected for the back labels.
