This 19 Year Old Laffie came from the warehouses of the German independent bottler Malts of Scotland. It was distilled on 18th June 1990 and bottled in November 2009. It's bourbon barrel 6463, that yielded 154 bottles at 53,2% ABV. It was bottled exclusively for the Belgian market.

Oh, my, what a nose! I get sweet peat, oysters, sea salt, perfectly balanced with the overripe oranges, sour current, almonds, smoked ham, candlewax and... mackerel!

It starts of very sweet on the palate, with a spoonful of vanilla and a whole forrest of licquorice, but soon reveals notes of ash, iodine and bacon on the grill with pepper. This is very, very good. I don't feel like adding any water to this one.

The finish lasts very long and remains smoky and brackish.

Laffie-lovers - and peatfreaks in general - will lick their fingers - or the inside of their tasting glass in this case.
