Released in 2004, this bottling was aged for five years before being finished in a quarter cask for seven months, the size of the cask is quite small, thus does not require such a long maturation. This is truly a great achievement from Laphroaig. Nose: Oily and buttery nose, with toffee, nuttiness, hickory, bicarbonate of soda, rum and raisin ice cream and zest. Palate: Big rush of sweetness, in fact it s an explosion of sweetness, with fiery chilli heat, TCP, sweet cereals and a touch of cola syrup. Finish: Medium length, but becomes fruity, with custard and cigar smoke.
