Description

A 15-year-old cask strength Laphroaig from the Character Of Islay whisky company's "Wind & Wave' series.

This has been bottled in Australia for Barrel & Batch. 

Distilled 2004 and aged for 15 years in an ex-bourbon cask. Weighs in at 50.2%.

Character Of Islay is an independent bottler of Islay whiskies from Atom Brands, the company also behind That Boutique-y Whisky Company, Darkness and Drinks By The Dram.

Modern indie bottlings from Laphroaig are rare, so this is a real treat and at 15-years in the sweet spot for Laphroaig diehards. 

Tasting note by Sam Simmons, Head Of Whisky for Atom:

Nose: Apricots, tarry smoke, freshly baked shortbread.

Palate: Tinned coconut milk, roast meats and toasted oak.

Finish: Long herbal finish with sweet, savoury and earthy smoke.

Barrel & Batch is an Australia whisky co-op that sources single cask and rare whiskies from all over the country including Scotland, American and Australia. The limited release whiskies are offered to members of the co-op, but here at The Oak Barrel we’re lucky enough to get our hands on a small number of the odd release.
