This is an independent bottling of Laphroaig spirit that was procured by Single Cask Nation. It was aged in a bourbon hogshead and was bottled without coloring or filtering.
Honey, almonds. Strong bandages and smoke, that iodine peat presence is unmistakable. Big bright lemon zest, faint salinity and rich vanilla cream.
Thick, rich, no real heat. Sweet and loaded with vanilla cream. The peat smoke swoops in though, bringing bandages, vegetal funk, iodine and caramel with it. Big pepper also makes a strong appearance. Its impressively sweet with lots of caramel, toffee and peanut brittle.
Short, rich and smokey. Lots of caramel and vanilla here, touch of salt, and a bright peaty finish. In your face, but doesnt last for hours.
I really had doubts about a 5yr Frog, but this was really incredible. The caramel note was welcome and integrated very well with the profile of peat and smoke that Laphroaig sets out for. I thought this was phenomenal.
