Laphroaig 16yo 1988/2004 (46%, The Syndicate, bottled at Bruichladdich) A strange bottle that looks like an OB. Which kind of Syndicate is it? Sorry collectors, I have no further clues. Colour: pale gold. Nose: a very clean Laphroaig, similar to the usual 10yo but with a little more of everything, that is to say more peat, more lemon, more grapefruit and more gunflints in this case. Not too medicinal I must say. Mouth: pretty much in the same vein. Ripe kiwis and pineapples, even more grapefruits, more peat than in the 10 and quite a smokiness. Finish: rather long, getting salty with time. Very salty actually. Excellent, 89 points.
