Signatory 7 year old (distilled at Laphroaig) 1999 vintage, 58.0%

Price: $45 Issue: Fall 2007 Reviewer: John Hansell

Tastes more mature than its age would suggest. It's packed with ripe, sweet barley (especially at the palate entry). There are some high citrus fruit notes and anise that emerge before the signature Laphroaig peat smoke and tar wallops you. Very vibrant and youthful, but without being too green. A steal for $45.
