Introducing the second release of Ian Hunter’s series: a non-chill filtered whisky with sweet sherry notes underscored by Laphroaig ‘s characteristic peatiness, aged for 30 years in Spanish Oak Oloroso Sherry oaks.
The second release of Ian hunter Series is a tribute to the Icon that Ian Hunter built more than 100 years ago. Because no one thing is more important to the creation of Laphroaig® than the place it comes from Islay and the ‘hollow by the bay’ where Laphroaig® first came into being. It might seem obvious to state, but our whisky could not be recreated in any other place than this.
Set into a beautifully crafted book that will document a part of Ian’s rich legacy. Every year a new chapter will be told, uncovering the extensive history behind Laphroaig® and the characters who created it, making this a collection unlike any other, and one that is treasured by Laphroaig® fans across the world.
Distinctive. Not for everyone This second release, a 30 year old non-chill filtered whisky, matured in Spanish Oak Oloroso Sherry cask, which make this second book a unique peated single malt whisky.
The second book of the story starts with Warehouse No.1. With the different cask types being brought by Ian Hunter, including ex-bourbon barrels and sherry cask, Ian recognised the need for more capacity to house them. Ian selected the location by the Atlantic shore that would have it’s influencer on the casks and planned a five-phased extension between 1910 and 1924.
It is this icon that we celebrate in book two of the Ian Hunter Story. This is an exquisite, 30 year old Laphroaig Spanish Oak Oloroso Sherry cask in tribute to Ian Hunter.
This series of rare and collectable aged whiskies honours the legacy of one man, Ian Hunter, the last of the Johnston family to own and manage the Laphroaig distillery, between 1908 and 1944. Each release will contain a rare and aged Laphroaig®, set into a beautifully crafted book that will document a part of Ian’s rich legacy. Every year a new chapter will be told, uncovering the extensive history behind Laphroaig and the characters who created it, making this a collection unlike any other, and one that is treasured by Laphroaig fans across the world.
