Start salivating, people. Famed Islay distillery Laphroaig just unveiled a new expression that's been matured for 16 years in ex-bourbon barrels, softening the peat-laden whisky with delectable American Oak sweetness.

Now available nationwide with a retail price of $89, its nose mixes leather and oaky spices with floral notes before moving to a palette delivering a wood smoke mouthfeel with caramel and honey. Its long-lasting finish is signature Laphroaig, blending its intense flavor with hints of sweetness and salted seaweed. 

Sounds like our new favorite pour.....
