Laphroaig Aged in Wine Casks? (Petras Wine??)
At my local fine drinking establishment, they had a special bottle of Laphroaig three weeks ago. I tried to find information about it on the Laphroaig website, but no luck.
I went back tonight, and the GM said that it was aged in "Petras wine casks" for its final aging, and that it would retail for around $120. He said there was just the one batch, and probably only about 600 bottles or so.
Can anyone identify this, and perhaps even suggest a place where it might be purchased? Comparing it to ordinary Laphroaig would be like comparing Nicole Kidman to a circus fat lady, or a Faberge egg to a hen's egg, or the Hope Diamond to an industrial grinder bit. It was absolutely amazing stuff. (Do keep in mind that I adore plain old ordinary Laphroaig.)
