So your Valentine’s Day isn’t the romantic day of your dreams.
Things can improve…Why not buy yourself a bottle or two of Laphroaig single malt Scotch? It comes conveniently packaged and ready for imbibing. No gift wrapping required either.
Laphroaig “Lore” – the most richly flavored of all – means the passing of tradition and skills that have been passed from generation to generation for over 200 years. The name means “beautiful hollow by the broad bay.”
It is the only single malt Scotch whisky to bear the Royal Warrant bestowed by HRH Prince Charles. ($124.99 for a 750 ml bottle.)
The deep mahogany hue is rich and deep with smoke, peat and minerality with a hint of ash and bitter chocolate drops. Vanilla follows with unroasted chestnuts and a hint of fudge. On the palate the selection is richly peaty with a spicy chili bite.
Laphroaig “Select” ($44.99) has an eye catching, sparkling gold color with full-bodied enjoyment. Burning embers of peat embrace with aromatic hints of coconut and banana. It is deep, complex and silky with hints of sweetness on the palate. The finish is tantalizingly long and dry with smoke and spice.
Distillery manager John Campbell described it best: “This selection is peat, ash and spice wrapped in a blanket of sweetness.”
