Laphroaig 1999

Country: Scotland
Region: Islay
Type: Single Malt
Bottler: Cooper's Choice
ABV: 46%
Score: 83 points

This single-cask bottling was aged in a refill butt, and while it’s the same age as the distillery’s 10-year-old bottling, there are differences. The color is lighter, and the nose is dry and peaty with hints of oak and straw. The taste starts off slightly tart, then develops a spicy peatiness that builds well into the finish, which remains smoky and intense with just a hint of lemon.
