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 (1)

Producer's Tasting Note
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.
An intense and profound deepness.
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.
Concentrated peat and thick sherried oak with a deep dryness.

Excellent whiskey Full of flavour Perfect combination of spicy notes with the sweetener notes of the different matured casks as Pedro Ximénez Highly recommended Balance, Rich, and a pleasure to drink I did enjoyed with my brother and a cigar It was memorable Will buy again
My favorite Laphroaig tried to date simply put
I truly wish I could have had the opportunity to taste this earlier. This is one of the most well rounded, but expressive scotches. So deep and amazing.
Essential to any lover of Islay Whisky. Best with a little water to bring out the full flavour.
Benefits from a few drops of water to and a little time in the glass to let peat settle and dampen the iodine. . A bottle for any Laphroaig lovers collection. A little different than most their offerings.
