Customer Rating
Originally released for the travel retail market, Laphroaig PX cask is aged initially in American oak and then in quarter casks before a final finishing period in ex-Pedro Ximenez sherry casks. A rich, sweeter and full-bodied expression of this Islay favourite.

Tasting Notes

  • Producer's Tasting Note

    Colour: Antique Gold.

    Nose: From the bottle there is a nice sherry aroma of sweet sultanas and raisins with a hint of sweet liquorice and only the slightest tang of peat. Adding a little water brings out the marzipan and almond aroma with a counterpoint of creamy nuts and lots of ripe fruits but again there’s only the slightest tang of peat smoke.

    Body: An intense and profound deepness.

    Palate: Without water a massive explosion of peat fills the mouth with huge amounts of oakiness only just moderated by the sweeter heavy sherry flavour. Adding a touch of water only slightly moderates the massive peat reek which very slowly fades and just allows a little of the sweeter sherried flavours to come through although there is always that burst of peat smoke that dries the mouth.

    Finish: Concentrated peat and thick sherried oak with a deep dryness.

    Fantastic. Classic Laphroaig smokiness and peatiness, with a lovely sweetness imparted by the PX - but not an overbearing sweetness. I wonderful balance between sweet and smokey.

    this is a top class laphroaig! tried this in an airport once and thoroughly enjoyed it! you get the typical smoky.. phenols and tcp that we all know and love about laphroaig..that punch in the mouth sort of feeling..but then a lovely sherried sweetness comeing through at the end.. if you love smoky islay whisky's this one is for you.. if you like your peated whskys a little more sweet then this one is for you too! get a bottle and drink! Salute!

    Nose is a bit mute at first but opens out beautifully after it has been opened a week or two. Lovely mix of sherry, smoke and peat. They combine well here. Needs time to open.

    Finishes and Laphroaig - a tragedy in two acts. It''s hard to shake the ''glued on'' impression of the PX and I can''t help but think that way more time would have been required to marry the bold Laphro spirit properly with the finish.
