Laphroaig 14 years old Douglas Laing’s Old Particular

Laphroaig from Douglas Laing […]

It’s been a long time since we had here Laphroaig ;), recently it appeared on the blog in August – it was 10 years old from 70s. Therefore, it is time for the next one. Today also quite unusual, because of independent bottler - Douglas Laing from a series of Old Particular. It was released to celebrate the Feis Ile 2015. Distillation in February 2001, bottling in February 2015. Single cask - refill butt - a total of 636 bottles with 48.4% ABV. Of course, natural color and no chill filtration. I bought this bottle while my last visit to Islay in the capital city of Bowmore. Douglas Laing is an interesting independent bottler, while Whisky Live Warsaw in 2015 I participated in their Masterclass, I have very fond memories form that event, then I tasted Laphroaig 25 years old. On the blog there is Laphroaig 1998/2013 from another independent bottler - Samaroli. Im very curious what this bottle hides, therefore, let’s get to work.

This is Islay, immediately spreads throughout the mouth, the taste is rich and multi-dimensional, peat is obvious, grilled seafood and fish, ash, after a while there is also a light warming up, further ripe orange, grapefruit,...

    Bogha – Drochaide

    Last time I visited Islay Ive been to Bruichladdich (An Turas Mor, Laddie Classic Edition 1). There my eyes were attracted by sherry butt of peated whisky for self-filling.

The distillery continues its production and in 2015 created the seventh batch. Recently I bought a bottle of Laphroaig 10 years old Cask Strength 007. It was bottled in January 2015 with 56.3% ABV.

Among them Loki is my favourite character. After him...
