Whisky Reviews for Islay #2 TBWC

- A mystery about the distillery, not as peaty as new Islay nowadays, more matured and transformed.
A sweet, thick Laphroaig-ish peat, red fruits, prunes, peaches, quite fruity and dark.
Minty, fresh melons, like a Bunnahabhain
Medium and still quite peaty.
- Tasted from 3cl sample.Bananas in caramel, well integrated sweetness, lemony, quite strong maritime characteristics and noticeably salty, fairly strong but not overwhelming peat smoke, tastes surprisingly full bodied for 48% alcohol.Finishes with strong barley taste, almost biscuity.Overall very well balanced, tastes similar to some older Laphroaigs I’ve enjoyed in the past... I think I might go and buy a bottle.88 points
