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.

Trevor avoids the screen because he was recording the game to watch later. […]

When we first were recommended these we very curious as to what the slight difference in finish on a rye whiskey would make. One was 63% Madeira finish, 30% Sauternes finish and 7% Port finish, the other was 100% Sauternes finish. Although there was a seemingly slight difference in the final aging of the whiskey, […]

We thought we might write up an initial “How We Like To Review” page before we start putting out these reviews we’ve been writing.
