TN: Laphroaig 15 years: 200 years of Laphroaig I first tasted this at the Laphroaig Distillery in 2015 and bought two bottles on the spot. It is a special bottling to celebrate the 200th anniversary of the distillery being founded that was made from barley that was 100% smoked with peat at the distillery. For other bottlings, I was told at the distillery that only 20% of the barley was smoked at the distillery due to demand, the rest was purchased from the Port Ellen malting (smoked at 50 PPM). Bottled at 43% alcohol, it is a golden yellow colour. The nose is a heady mix of the peaty, medicinal, coastal profile that we, to coin a phrase, Laphroaig-heads, love. However, I also found some stewed tropical fruit in there as well. The mouthfeel has a nice sharp peaty edge, but this glides effortlessly across my tasted buds. Every sip brings a smile to my face. I do not think I could ever tire of drinking this delightful dram. For me, this is classically individual bottling of Laphroaig.
