aromatic, but also a hint of alcohol, tickling the nose, yellow fruits and a hint of smoke from a distant campfire. Everything is subtle and interwoven. A hint of vanilla and a hint of extinct match (no sulfur notes). Takes time, evolves in the glass, makes a good impression. Slightly warm and sweet-fruity, smoky touch, slightly creamy.
with onset, somewhat fiery and slightly spicy, aromatic, smoky, slightly spicy and somewhat perfumed. Notes of barrel and coffee, bitter oak aromas.
* a little water makes it appear fruity and takes a little bit of the sharpness away Now aromatic, perfumed, slightly fruity, delicious coffee aromas, delicately tart with oak, a hint of dark chocolate.
initially with coffee, delicately tart, hint of fruity, oak, soft and long fading. At the end delicate fruity-sweet and a touch of malty.
Not quite round but still successful and tasty.
- This combination of Laphroaig and Highland Park fits very well, the Laphroaig supports the Highland Park smoke very well and it also brings a nice grapefruit note. I don't really like floral whiskeys, but in this combination I do.
Clear smoke rises in the nose, with grapefruit, a little sweetness, almonds, floral notes, flowery, a little honey, vanilla, you can smell the Laphroaig clearly and also that it has been around for a few years, some pepper, a little oak, after the first sip the Highland Park gets through the nose more, more floral than when you smell the first, heather
starts very flowery, heather, then smoke, with sweetness, here too the grapefruit, oak, very floral, here comes the Highland vanilla, but mainly floral, short hint of herbal tea with honey, nice combination of laphi and HP, intense, complex, it's fun, very creamy
dry smoke on the palate, still the grassy, oak, slightly tart, long-lasting, sweetness flashes from time to time, here the sweet tea association plus smoke is best, then fresher with a little mint
- So based on the code this should be a mix of Highland Park and Laphroaig. Interesting and it works really well. Can't taste to much of the Laphroaig though. More so like a good highland park. Maybe it was an HP teaspooned with Laphroaig :-) Happy with that.
