I was pretty keen to try this whisky when I saw it at the duty free store in Sydney on the way to Bali a while ago. It had been on my list for ages but due to a lack of travel I hadn't been able to pick up a bottle.
Eye: Whisky witness to a murder, light red staining
Nose: Sweet PX sherry and trademark Laphroaig peat. Iodine is heavily present. With time comes some vanilla.
Palate: Initial sweetness with bucket loads of iodine and ocean. Peat explosion.
Finish: Very salty, and very smoky. Quite sweet with lots of red fruits. Great drying finish.
Great stuff. very happy to see the higher bottling strength. Would like to see how Laphroaig would go straight into a first fill PX cask without the additional maturation. This was however a great variation on the ten year that I know and love. Chilled music from Milky Chance to go with this one.
