The Octave Laphroaig 2011 9 Year Old Description
A 9-year-old Laphroaig bottled by Duncan Taylor in The Octave series. This one is a younger Islay malt finished for five months in a sherry octave - these casks are a quarter of the size of a standard American barrel thus influencing the whisky more prominently in a shorter time frame due to the increased wood surface contact. Bottled at a strength of 54.7% ABV there are only 78 limited edition bottles in existence.
Nose: peaches, cinnamon, citrus, smouldering oak logs.
Palate: sultanas, fudge, hot peat.
Finish: buttery, vanilla, fruit cake.
