Laphroaig 30 Year Old 'The Ian Hunter Story' Book 1 Scotch Single Malt Whisky 700mL

The Ian Hunter Story - Book 1 is the first chapter of a series of rare and collectable aged whiskies honours the legacy of one man. Ian Hunter, the last of the Johnston family to own and manage the Laphroaig distillery, between 1908 and 1944. Each release will contain a rare and aged Laphroaig, set into a beautifully crafted book that will document a part of Ian’s rich legacy. Every year a new chapter will be told, uncovering the extensive history behind Laphroaig and the characters who created it, making this a collection unlike any other, and one that is treasured by Laphroaig fans across the world.

Aged in first-fill bourbon barrels, this non-chill filtered whisky is beautifully rounded with a combination of sweet, zesty and medicinal notes. This is where Ian Hunter’s influence is most obvious, as it was his decision to introduce American white oak barrels into the maturation process of Laphroaig . Over time, the original smokiness of this 30-year-old whisky has become less of an assault on the senses. Beautifully married with the sweet vanilla notes enhanced with ageing, the whisky develops into a more mature, well-rounded dram.

This is a liquid worth savouring – and a Laphroaig worthy of Ian Hunter himself. Unique. Distinctive. You could be describing Ian Hunter as much as you could the taste of Laphroaig. Despite his polarising personality, Ian Hunter made Laphroaig what it is today: a whisky enjoyed the world over by a wide and diverse range of people.

Laphroaig 30YO Ian Hunter is burnished Gold in colour, with aromas of ripe tropical fruits, toasted macadamia nuts and more than a hint of vanilla cream. The palate offers smoke notes, tempered by lime and nectarine, giving way to sea salt and mild chilli. Antique leather and green tobacco leaf on the finish.
