Laphroaig 1990/2009 (53.2%, Malts of Scotland, Exclusive to Belgium, Bourbon Barrel #6463, 154 bottles) Colour: light gold. Nose: we aren’t too far from the Signatory here except that the almondy notes are bigger. Quite some limejuice as well and maybe more notes of kippers and just a little shoe polish. With water: same evolution, a tad more candied than the Signatory. Beautiful notes of high-end triple-sec. Mouth (neat): almost the same as the Signatory, a tad more rounded and vanilled, maybe the barrel was a little fresher than the Signatory’s. A little more salty liquorice as well. With water: almost the same as the Signatory now. Finish: long, tasting of the sea, maybe a little more citrusy. Comments: the Belgians have it good.SGP:358 - 90 points.
