Laphroaig kommer med en serie der hedder Ian Hunter series og kommer til at bestå af 15 aftapninger. Ian Hunter er den sidste af Johnston family - Laphroaig’s founding fathers der producerede og drev Laphroaig distillery fra 1908 til 1944.



"Laphroaig is born out of the ancient soil of Islay, the art of distillation and the iconic nature of the people of Islay (‘The Ileachs’). It is thanks to Ian Hunter’s management of the Laphroaig distillery from 1908 to 1944 that these characteristics were brought together to create the whisky that you hold in front of you today."

Denne første aftapning i Ian Hunter series er en 30 års Laphroaig der har ligget på American white oak bourbon barrels.

Noter:

Nose: Sweet and medicinal with manuka honey, light peat smoke, cooked apple and rosemary vanilla. Orgeat syrup and a hint of lemon peel complete the aroma.

Palate: Peaty and peppery with notes of herbs, cedar, kumquat zest and gorse flower. A sweetness of custard cream and vanilla pods.

Finish: Coastal with subtle iodine, sea salt and seaweed notes. A touch of coffee and oaky character.

Colour: Burnished gold.
