Laphroaig PX Cask Triple Matured Single Malt Scotch Whisky
The Laphroaig PX Cask is made with whisky matured in three types of cask - American oak casks, Quarter casks and the titular Pedro Ximénez casks. This leads to a flavour profile which ties together classic, powerful Laphroaig smoke and wine-like sweetness.
Colour: Antique gold
Nose: A fusion of caramel, seaweed and brine, infused with smoke and earthen wood. Raisins, and dried fruits, butter with nougat and dark cocoa is finished off with green pepper, ginger peels and a pinch of nutmeg.
Palate: Caramel and bits of licorice are soon welcomed by ash, leather and brine. There’s layers of sherry, sultanas, figs and cocoa with some distinguishable traces of tropical fruits and ginger.
Finish: Medium to long, though dry; Rich sherry sweetness, smoke and some ginger spice.
