Snooth's Spirit of the Week is...


Laphroaig “Lore” Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky ($125): Laphroaig is one of the preeminent Single Malt Scotch producers in Islay. Among other things they’re well known for producing distinct, peaty Scotches. Their history dates back to 1815 and since that time their goal has been to produce the richest single malts in the world. Distillery Manager John Campbell created Lore with a couple of things in mind. One is to honor the passing of Scotch making skills and knowledge down from one generation to the next’ the other is producing the aforementioned richest Single Malt possible. From that agenda Lore was born.
Lore was produced from a combination of casks. This included double matured first-fill ex-Bourbon barrels, Virgin European oak, first fill Oloroso Sherry butts, first and refill quarter casks and refill ex-Laphroaig stock. Lore was produced in limited quantities and it’s currently available at select retailers nationwide. As with any selection from the Laphroaig portfolio when you stick your nose in the glass you’re hit back with a bit of smoky goodness. In this case bits of salinity, roasted pecans and wisps of tangerine rind are present as well. Taking the first sip it’s immediately apparent there’s depth to spare here. Dried dates, hints of dusty cocoa, roasted mixed nuts and a bit of jalapeno are all present in droves. The finish here is prodigiously long with spice, fruit and gentle bits of salinity reverberating on and on long after the last sip is swallowed.

Distinct expressions such as Lore, produced in limited quantities are one of the things that set Laphroaig apart. Their normal portfolio is dependable and loaded with go-to Scotches for those who love peaty whisky, but these special releases are worth anticipating and clamoring for.
