"This very limited edition was issued to commemorate the 200 Year anniversary in 2015 of Laphroaig Distillery.
"Deep mahogany Reminiscent of a Christmas fruit cake, the rich, sherry sweetness and the aroma of caramelized brown sugar are predominant. A drop of water reveals notes of cinnamon spiced red apples, with just a hint of bitter dark chocolate.
The dark, bitter chocolate follows through to the palate, with nutmeg and intense spicy, oakiness. Adding a touch of water allows sweeter, sherry flavors to come through with just a hint of salt tang and subtle peat smoke. Dry, long and lingering, sherried-oak finish.
"This rare bottle of Laphroaig has acquired a rounded character and exceptional smoothness after lying solely in the nest ex-Oloroso casks for 32 long years."
