      Medicinal, light vanilla notes, smell of fresh vegetables, over all campfire scent
    • Taste
      86 86
      A little sweetness, toffee, stimulates the salivation incredibly, taste of baked cake dough, for its 48% very mild

      Long very strong, here are the 48% through, again sweetness which alternates with light pepperiness and smoke

    Freshly uncorked, there is strong dominant smoke (less phenolic-medical than more smoked ham) with a lot of oak and spice, but also sherry, vanilla and sweet notes. Powerful and oily at the same time. Very long finish with a clearer sherry sweetness. 10 gtt water to 30 ml open the sweet and the sherry notes, making it a little creamier and smoother.
    After four weeks in the open bottle, it rounds off clearly, takes a very positive development, the sherry notes and the mild bourbon vanilla / sweetness come to the fore more and more.
    Overall, very nice, tart, smoky sweetness with oak, vanilla and liquorice.
    To feel and differentiate the effects of the three barrel types. As a result, a separate, individually designed Islay malt that stands out from other Laphroaig.
    I like Quarter Cask and PX Cask better

    Great NAS from Laphroaig, I have this much more than the 10 year old. The PLV is top.

    The 10-year-old was one of my favorites, but in terms of taste I found myself getting less and less over time.
    The taste I had in mind was no longer there, and I did not smell the smell on the other side of the room when the bottle opened.
    Now this was an offer, and I brought it with me.
    And I have to say that I was pleasantly surprised and brought me back to the past.
