Laphroaig is known for their smokiness in their scotch whisky. They do a good job mixing the peat flavor with a sweet complexity which was evident to us with this bottle.
Color was a mid yellow.
T: Clearly peaty, but sweet
C: Sweet – campfire – fruitiness in there
T: Complexity and balance: 98
C: Sharp sweet, fruity before the smokiness even kicked in – evens out very smoothly
T: Peat dissipates and you’re left with a slightly scorched fruit blend
C: Fruitiness hangs around even more than the smoke/peat.
This was probably my (Cole’s) favorite bottle of scotch. Amazing fruity finish, very sweet with a lingering finish that was phenomenal. If you can even find this bottle, get it. It would be very worth it.
