    Looks like there are quite some variations with this bottling and I was lucky to have a better one, it's the way I was hoping for with this great mix of tropical fruits and fine coastal peat, overall it is still behind the Julius Wile bottling but anyways really excellent!

      Citrusy, grapefruity, austere notes, more on tropical fruits, mango, passion fruit, pineapple, some herbs, almonds, whiffs of peat and smoke, iodine, old books, hint of OBE, spices, pepper, little woody notes, tobacco, hay - excellent!

    The least fruity and most oily unblended Laphroaig I've had - rather unusual.
    • Nose
      Barley sugars, crystalline pineapple, mangoes, grease, nutmeg, redcurrants, wet nettles, old unused plasters, ripe plums, cream, oil. Much more engine oil and grease than you'd expect - the fruit and peat are hiding behind it, but when the fruits show themselves, it's beautiful. Unfortunately, they don't often...
    • Taste
      Apples, pineapples, grapes. Iodinie, wet leaves, lots of engine oil and grease, still.
    • Finish
      Ahh, there's a hit of fruit. But it's soon overwhelmed by iodine, moss, grease. Very good nonetheless.
