Amazon bags brilliant Laphroaig 16 single malt whisky exclusive
16-year-old malt only available through Amazon
Amazon has revealed that it has teamed up with whisky titans Laphroaig and will sell an exclusive 16-year-old malt through the site.
What can you expect from the whisky drink? Well, it's going to be packed full of peaty goodness, thanks to it having been matured on Islay for 16-years in ex-bourbon barrels.
As for the taste, according to it makers it is a lovely deep copper in colour and comes with oaky spices and vanilla, as well as aromas of gorse flowers, heather and roasted chestnuts.
Given its smokey nature, expect a palate of treacle, caramel and wood smoke.
Speaking about the new whisky, John Campbell, Laphroaig distillery manager, noted: ‘Laphroaig 16-year-old is the perfect illustration of how our rich whiskies mellow as they mature. Whilst this expression carries the iconic smoke of Laphroaig, this is married with sweeter notes of honey and caramel, creating a remarkable dram that’s perfect for the long evenings of late summer and into cosier nights of autumn.’
