- Laphroaig 18 Year Old Diamond Jubilee
To celebrate Queen Elizabeth’s 60th year on the throne, Laphroaig Distillery has released 3,000 bottles of limited edition 18 Year Old single malt Scotch bearing Prince Charles’ Royal Warrant.
Pre-Order shipping June 2012.
Soft, sweet and spicy Islay peat smoke greets you when you first open the bottle. The immediate taste is an oak sweetness, from 18 years in the barrel. A faint hint of the sea, testimony to its time maturing on the remote island of Islay.
