What's in a name? Macallan & Laphroaig - Double Barrel (Douglas Laing) whisky is called whisky because it's produced in Scotland. Were it from America it would be spelled Macallan & Laphroaig - Double Barrel (Douglas Laing) whiskey, rather than whisky.
As pointed on the bottle this one is rather unusual blend between the sophisticated Macallan and the rather punchy Laphroaig. Out of such a combination it is not surprising that the Laphroaig peaks over, while the Macallan ads the the fruit and some freshness. Oily round the glas with smoky nose, strong on the palate and subtle on the finish, leaving dark chocolate film. Whisky with a character, maybe even two.
