As a Friend of Laphroig the distillary invited me also this year again to purchase two special malts not intended for the regular trading:
- The Laphroaig Cask Strength Batch 009 and
- the Laphroaig Càirdeas 2017 Cask Strength QC.
I couldn’t say no and ordered both, on Monday they arrived. Now I’m looking forward opening them. But this won’t be the next days. As I already wrote I’m renewing my collection. So step by step open bottles are emptied and replaced by new closed ones. Not exactly one by one, but close by. The total number remains quite steady at about 40 to 45.
When I’m opening the new malts I’ll blog my tasting notes here.
