Double Barrel Laphroaig/Mortlach, 46%

Price: $77 Issue: Fall 2013 Reviewer: Dominic Roskrow

This is one of the more intriguing of the Double Barrel series, because while the others either complement each other or don't,

this has a depth to it that you need to look for. At first it's all Laphroaig, and the peat and sea burst out of the glass. But just as you're asking yourself what the point is, the fruity notes of the Mortlach cushion the whole landing and let you down gently. Impressive. £48
