Alright, my scotch lovin’ Dirty Turbanites, we’re a bit late on our Scotch of the Month, but, look what arrived courtesy of laphroaig.com just in time for National Scotch Day – Laphroaig Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky 18 YO!!
As their slogan says this 18 YO single malt is a “big peaty slap in the face.” Perfect!
Sure it’s a bit pricey at $73, but it’s worth every shekel. What we have here is an amazingly rich Islay scotch with floral notes followed by smoke, liquorice, toffee and a faint hint of spice. Wonderful and sensational. What more can we say? How about, give us more, this is hot stuff!
We give it 5 out of 5 Dirty Turbans.
