Tasting notes by Whiskyfun (Serge Valentin)
Colour: white wine.
Nose: more or less in the style of the Whisky Fair version, only a little earthier. Austere.
With water: wow, even more austere! Exhaust pipes and Perrier.
Mouth (neat): superb earthiness in this one! Quite some mint as well, liquorice... And it's a powerhouse. So, with water: oh yes! There's this magnificent combination of fresh lemon juice, kippers and smoked salmon, cigar ashes and oysters that's so beautiful in some Laphroaigs. And the peatiness is mega-huge.
Finish: extremely long, lemony, peppery, ashy... Comments: a triple bang here. A true peat monster, but not only that. SGP: - 91 points.
