Lafroy Note
a couple of years ago
Lafroy gave this whisky 87 points

Nose makes a huge promise of peat, smoke, tobacco smoke, freshness and pure Islay expressions. Taste is less promising than nose, but it is still very pleasant.

Finish is the weakest point, it`s rather short, salty and smoky, but at the end it`s unfortunately little bitter, not the way I would like it to be.
