This is a GoodDrop Fresh Drop… meaning we have bought an extremely limited stock holding of this item which will not be replenished once sold out. Get in quick if you want to try this normally travel retail exclusive single malt.

Laphroaig PX Cask is made with whisky matured in three types of casks – American oak casks, Quarter casks and Pedro Ximénez casks. Pedro Ximénez (also known as PX) is the name of a white Spanish wine grape variety grown in several Spanish wine regions but most notably in the Denominación de Origen (DO) of Montilla-Moriles.

The result is a complex Laphroaig, with the character of each type of barrel detectable in the final flavours, including a gentle but unmistakable sweetness. Laphroaig is usually very peaty and smoky in nature, but the finish in both American Oak Casks and PX casks give the dram a new depth and much more complexity in the flavour profile. One of the richest, freshest peated whiskies ever made.

I get the feeling that this is a breathtaking success despite the inclusion of Pedro Ximenez casks. This ultra-sweet wine is often paired with  smoky malt, often with disastrous consequences. Here it has worked, but only because the PX has been controlled itself by absolutely outstanding oak. And the ability of the smoke to take on several roles and personas simultaneously.  A quite beautiful whisky and unquestionably one of the great malts of the year…in spite of itself.”  - Jim Murray

 

Tasting Note: Antique gold colour. Sherry aroma of sweet sultanas and raisins with a hint of sweet liquorice. An intense and profound depth. Peat,oak and a sweeter heavy sherry flavour on the palate. Concentrated peat and thick sherried oak with a deep dryness.

    I got this for my stepfather for his birthday and he said it’s very nice and mellow.
