Tasting Notes

  • Producer's Tasting Notes

    Colour: Burnt Orange

    Nose: Starting with rich sweetness of figs, moving into a floral flavour of lavender and black pepper developing into sweet natural honey notes

    Body: An intense and profound depth

    Palate: Very peppery, spicy also liquorice root with a slight saltiness. Moving to gentle oak tannins, lovely orange peel and then a dry earthiness

    Finish: Lovely creamy walnuts enveloped by the very distinct Laphroaig peatiness that lasts and lasts

    A very unique whiskey with an amazing complexity of smoke, citrus and slightly toasted bacon taste.

    Worthy of a 5 star review... Everything that people are saying... But in addition to that this dram is salty and exceptionally so... very enjoyable.

    It''s worth its price tag - a smooth & richly flavoured malt with an undertone of smoke

    Incredibly smooth and gentle whisky, considering it''s a Laphroaig. Bursting full of flavor with only a hint of smoke. A mellowness you normally only see in rare and expensive ( ?300) Laphroaig whiskies. I love it!
