- Laphroaig 24 Year Old 1990 Old & Rare
Laphroaig 24 Year Old 1990 Vintage Islay single malt Scotch whiskey. Single cask refill hogshead bottled July 2014 by Hunter Laing & Co. for the Old & Rare Platimum Selection. 285 bottles.
This pale golden coloured whiskey has a robust, full-bodied nose, with sweet vanilla honey giving way to the peat and seaweed character associated with Islay. A sweet, creamy mouthfeel is followed by a slight tongue prickle with stewed rhubarb, burnt toffee and notes of rubber before the peat and seaweed again take over. Finally we are left with a lingering dry finish of peat and oak.
