Sold for HK$ 6,200 (US$ 799) inc. premium
Laphroaig-21 year old
Bottled 2008 for Heathrow Airport. Distilled and Bottled by D. Johnston & Co., Laphroaig Distillery, Isle of Islay.
Bottle number 690 of 750. Cask strength. Oak Cask. In original carton. Good label. Level: into neck. "...Mouth (neat): wonderful attack, big but not aggressive, very 'wide' – it does 'the peacock's tail' right from the start. Goes into many consecutive directions (if you see what I mean), with leathery/earthy tones, classic peat, spices (cloves and pepper), salt and bitter oranges, juicy fruits (tangerines, mangos). Then the whole medicinal shebang. Wow. With water: it got marvellously zestier, almost lemony, candied yet very phenolic in the background. Finish: very long, softer now but truly multidimensional, even if there are some faint notes of fresh oak again." (5 Stars-Whiskyfun)
70cl. Single Malt., 53.4% volume.
