Laphroaig Four Oak is a surprising Laphroaig bottling, which matures in less than four types of vessels. These are ex-Bourbon, Virgin Oak, Quarter Cask and European Oak. Obviously going to taste influences derived from these vessels, hand in hand with the classic Laphroaig style; Whiskey is powerful and full of character. The aroma is spicy with touches of vanilla and peat. The flavor contains notes of seaweed, ash and sandalwood which alternates with influences from peat. The finish is slightly salty with notes of licorice and peat.
