Part of Old Malt Cask's 20th Anniversary line, this 12 year old Laphroaig was distlled in 2006 and bottled in 2018 at 50% ABV, as is typical for the OMC lineup.

"These beautifully retro bottles were released to commemorate the twentieth anniversary of Hunter Laing's Old Malt Cask series, and man...have they done a bang-up job! Both on the time warp branding and the stuff in the bottle. Each of the anniversary bottlings was fantastic, but this Laphroaig is on a whole different level. If you're a long time peathead, you're bound to recognize the old school fruit-driven flavour profile of this one. I hate to say it, but they rarely make 'em like this these days. Knock out whisky!" - Curt R.

Andrew's Tasting Note

Nose: ozone, juicy malt, hickory smoke and sea-salt; Russian caramel, burnt orange peel and salty Dutch licorice; lemon juice, seaweed wafers, melons and cream. 

Palate: Old English Butterscotch, seaweed wafers, smoked creme brulee and more Russian caramel; tarry with more hickory smoke; juicy malt and briny-medicinal notes: detol in a dirty mop bucket; orange, lemon and melons beneath the surging sweet peat; mossy, earthy and tarry with fennel and anise.

Finish: long, coating and medicinal with juicy malt, tarry smoke and briny caramel.

Comment: this is a big, juicy and punchy Laphroaig; chewy with lots of layers but no rough edge; dare we call it an Old School Laphroaig?

Producer's Tasting Note

Nose: BBQ notes, roasted ham, beach bonfire. 

Palate: Seaweed, charred wood, rich maritime peat.

Finish: Long, lingering with dense peat and rich ashy notes.
