General description

Looking forward to tasting this Laphroaig Cairdeas Cask Strength Quarter Cask 2017.
This special Feis Ile bottling comes at 57,2%.

First impression is a slight alcohol burn and a nice bonfire peat. After some added water drops the bonfire peat changed into a floral peat. This dram aged for 5 years on first fill Makers Mark barrels. But i dont get the results of that.
It has some sweetnes, but not the typical bourbon sweetnes.

The taste has some strong salty and peppery peat, wich softens into an all-spice peat after some water is added. A strong presence of wood due to the six months in quarter casks.
Very nice.

The finish is long sweet and spicy. I was a bit surprised by the slight bitter and dry mouthfeel of this one. Very different from other Laphroaig expressions i tasted.

Not as exciting as other laphroaigs i had but stil a nice decent dram.

84 points.
