The Result

The result surprised and delighted us. The additional oak influence from the quarter casks had created a soft sweetness and velvety feel when first tasted, then the intense peatiness so unique to Laphroaig comes bursting through. The finish is very long and alternates between the wood sweetness and the classic phenolic "peat reek" like the waves on our shore.

We believe that the original founding Johnston brothers would recognise this unique expression and thank us for recreating it.
