Laphroaig 10 Year Old is drenched in a long, rich history, hailing from an estate with a reputation for producing some of the finest single malt whiskies in the world. Produced in distilleries on Scotland's Islay Island, the exact origins of the Laphroaig Single Malt Scotch Whisky 10 Year Old are not precisely known due to the illegality of whisky in the past, but it is believed to have started out in the early 1880's as a Johnston family endeavour.
Since then Laphroaig has accomplished many things. In 1954 it was one of the first distilleries to be owned and run by a woman, in 1994 Prince Charles hand-delivered it a Royal Warrant, and throughout its entire history, with particular respect to this 10 Year Old, it has been recognised as one of the finest single malts in the world. Incorporating the use of used American Bourbon casks for whisky maturation has also given the Laphroaig Single Malt Scotch Whisky 10 Year Old its distinct and rich flavour.
Tasting Note: Golden amber. Blue peat smoke and earthy qualities. Sweet nut, oak, barley, iodine and pear-fruit. Peat is complemented by sweet, malty, and barely-there-vanilla. Divinely long and peaty, with suggestions of vanilla and an oaky dryness.
Knockando 12YO Single Malt Scotch Whisky 700ml
Knockando Single Malt Scotch Whisky 12 Year Old is divine and aromatic Scotch Whisky. With the first distillery built in 1898, Knockando has attained a rich history and a notable tradition. Knockando 12 Year Old is a single malt that has become renowned as one of the finest, and one of few Scottish Whiskies to select whisky for bottling at peak maturation - rather than at a specific selected age - to ensure its perfection. With only 12% of Knockando being sold as single malt whisky and the remainder being used in various blended malts, this Knockando Single Malt label has become somewhat of an exclusive whisky rarity.
Tasting Note: Pale gold. An aromatic sweetness is complemented by a delightful nuttiness. Characteristically delicate and soft, with fruity qualities and an almond appeal. Delightfully smooth with a slight lingering dryness and indulgent toffee and cream elements.
Tasting Note: See item description.
