- I don't know if I could really express my enthusiasm with my notes (Full review (german): https://keinehalbendrinks.de/2020/11/03/laphroaig-der-juengere/). For me he is fantastically clean and young. This is how it should be with an eight year old malt. I can’t ask for better!
- Issue price in May 2018: GBP 75.00
Whilst wandering the grounds in preparation for the masterclasses, we get offered a Laphroaig offering from an SMWS representative in matching red shoes. With life constraints, I noted:
N: Salty & sweaty fresh pine wood nose,…
T: ,… with a buttery oily vegetal briny palate mouthfeel.
F: Bitter-ish cask-influenced vegetal action, bonfire ash [more with water], and a touch bitter, chocolate vanilla choc ice to finish.
C: Pretty fine juice with youthful form from a very good cask, exclusively bottled by the SMWS for the Islay Feis Ile 2018.
