The third release of the Ian Hunter Series is to celebrate the legacy of the last of the Johnston family to own and manage the Laphroaig® distillery, and his fight to protect the Kilbride Stream.

TASTE PROFILE

Laphroaig® Vintage 1987,Ex-Bourbon Barrel Matured Single Malt

We’ve found that to get the most out of the whisky – to really see the
colour, breathe in the aroma, dive into the complex layers of avour, and
fully taste the long nish of this expression – the right glassware is essential.
A tulip-shaped snifter glass of uncut lead crystal is ideal. Fill the glass with
Laphroaig® 33-Year-Old Single Malt at room temperature. If you’re going
to dilute the liquid with water, we’d recommend soft Scottish water, but
really any good, cool but unchilled water will do.

 

TASTING NOTES


  • Colour

    Deep copper

  • NOSE
    Pears, peaches then apricots and lots of condensed sweetness open this delicious and vintage Laphroaig® up. Followed by notes of honey and rose petal, a dash of nutmeg, and finishing with ashy-dry peat
  • FINISH
    A very long nish with lingering, alternating ashy vanilla and peaty aromas.
  • TASTE
    A sweet, syrupy, fruity mouthfeel to start, it climbs and coats the whole of your palate. It dips to a huge second wave of aniseed, followed by creamy liquorice notes.
