The Whisky Barrel 10th Anniversary Laphroaig 6 Year Old


21st September 2017
The Whisky Barrel release limited edition Laphroaig 6 Year Old single cask bottling to mark their 10th Anniversary.

The Whisky Barrel 10th Anniversary Laphroaig 6 Year Old Single Caslk Whisky.Specialist online whisky shop, The Whisky Barrel has released a limited edition Laphroaig 6 Year Old 2011 Vintage single cask bottling to mark their 10th Anniversary.

The single cask Laphroaig was bottled for them by The Creative Whisky Co for their Exclusive Malts series, this is the third release marking The Whisky Barrel's 10th Anniversary and I am sure being a single cask Laphroaig that it will be of interest to a few of you.

The Laphroaig 6 Year Old was distilled on the 5th May 2011 then matured in a single refill sherry hogshead cask no.195 before being bottled in August 2017 at 58.7% ABV. A limited edition of only 337 bottles, each of which is individually  numbered.

As the peaty whisky fans amongst you know, bottling a peaty whisky at a young age that has had a sherry cask influence can potentially make for a very interesting whisky. The Whisky Barre describe it as "a full strength Laphroaig whisky" but say that "itís not overwhelming". They go on to say that "for Laphroaig lovers, itís all there but characteristic Laphroaig punch has been tamed a little by the sherry cask. Itís very approachable".

I am pleased to say that it has an affordable and drinkable price of £46.19 and it is available for shipping worldwide from The Whisky Barrel
 

The Whisky Barrel Laphroaig 6 Year Old Review


The Whisky Barrel's Tasting Notes:

Nose: Good hints of salted caramel and seaweed. Strong sherry and slightly oaky.

Taste: It has a lovely smooth mouthfeel with a striking sweetness from the sherry cask and warming toffee. But this merges in with the classic, famous and satisfying peaty notes with hints of seaweed and bonfire.

Finish: Beautifully long and lingering. Plenty of warmth and the continuation of the balanced peat and sweetness.
