Still some left, but you can no longer use the valinch but have to sample from some full size bottles

Stunning Sherried Laphroaig with some good aging.

We also tasted a barrel of Bourbon, which I liked a lot, and a quarter cask, less my choice, more bitter.
This was the one to take away, very living, very laphroaish.
Huge thanks to the folks at the distillery, visiting Laphroaig is always an interesting experience and I'm still learning any time I visit again.
