The range

Lp5

Islay single malt scotch whisky

A marriage of a trio of ex-bourbon barrels, Lp5 is a big-hearted dram that balances weighty smoke and ripe fruit. One of the richer Lp bottlings in the range.

Tasting notes

  • Nose

    Freshly charred wood and a background of sea air. Sweet spice and carbolic style smoke suggest those traditional medicinal notes.
  • Palate

    A flavour of vanilla pods cooked in butter is set off against ripe citrus and pink peppercorns. The peat smoke is subtle and earthy.
  • Finish

    Clementine and vanilla fall away to leave herb-infused background smoke.

Lp5 Reviews

  • A finely integrated peat monster.

    Neil Ridley

  • A refreshing young bourbon-matured dram. Needs water to get smoother.

    Martine Nouet

  • Dry smoky tar, dry oak and coal dust with croissant pastry. Still raspingly smoky and dry with a splash of water, but delightfully so.
