This 33-year-old Vintage 1987, Ex-Bourbon Barrel Matured Single Malt is the third release in our series of rare and collectable aged whiskies to celebrate the story of Ian Hunter.

Book Three: Source Protector celebrates the legacy of Ian Hunter, the last of the Johnston family to own and manage the Laphroaig® distillery, and his fight to protect the Kilbride Stream. This is a story of uncompromising guardianship and a battle between neighbours, over every distillery’s essential lifeblood, its source of water.


Having been fully matured in ex-Bourbon barrels, Laphroaig’s characteristic peatiness really shines through the creamy liquorice notes of this 33-year-old single malt, creating a whisky as distinctive as the man it’s named after.

 

COLOUR

Deep copper.

NOSE

Pears, peaches, apricots and lots of condensed sweetness open this delicious vintage Laphroaig up.

PALATE

A sweet, syrupy, fruity mouthfeel to start. It dips to a huge second wave of aniseed, followed by creamy liquorice notes.

TASTE

Lingering, alternating ashy vanilla and peaty aromas.

MATURATION

Matured exclusively in ex-Bourbon casks.
