Macallan & Laphroaig Double Barrel 46% 70cl
A bottling of two Single Malt Scotch Whiskies distilled at Macallan & Laphroaig Distilleries. Each married together from just One Single Selected Cask.
Selected, vatted, matured and bottled by Douglas Laing & Co. Ltd.
Tasting notes :-
Nose :- Opens lightly tarred yet fresh/floral with caramelised fruit (apricots) + spices (thyme and vanilla) beyond the saltiness.
Palate :- An initial sweetness + peat and tar alongside baked quality that runs to burnt shortbread and salty seaweed.
Finish :- Combines the Macallan honey with the Laphroaig tarry character. (F)
