It is a rare and unique expression, and the newest addition to the Laphroaig portfolio of Single Malt Scotch Whiskies.

NOSE: Mandarin and mango rise to the forefront, tempered by toasted almond and coconut. Aromatic peat oils are interwoven, appearing as cedar, wintergreen and smoked sage. A drop of water releases flashes of honey and apricot
