General description

Riecht leicht nach Vanille und Frucht. Schmeckt nach Salz und Chilli auf der Zungenspitze, gepaart mit Holzigen Noten im Abgang. Danach ein Hauch des Laphroaigrauchs der sehr lange noch in Mund und Nase nachklingt. Ein Fantastischer Tropfen.

General description

Lots of sweetness from the ex-bourboncasks but first the spiciness from the oak. And ofcourse what laphroaig is know for...peat,smoke,medicinal flavers. Not as extreme as the 10yo but mutch mutch better balanced and complex.

General description

Der Rauch ist nicht so extrem ausgebaut wie vergleichsweise beim Select. Insgesamt hat er aber an Komplexität gewonnen, in der Nase machen sich neben dem Rauch auch Vanille altes Holz und eine leichte Süße bemerkbar.
Auch im Geschmack ist er unglaublich rund geworden und erinnert mich irgendwie an bruichladdich port charlotte.

Nur im Abgang ist er wieder der Alte mit seinem lang andauernden Rauch!
