    Spider Web
    I found an old sample from Malts of Scotland in the back of my sample cabinet. After removing the dust and spider web, I saw it was a 13 Year Old Laffie, bottled in 2010 by the German bottler. Well, as I am tasting some Islay whisky today, this is a good find.

    Sweet nose on apple sauce with vanilla without the dry ashy elements of Laphroaig. That must be the young age. It makes it accessible and very pleasant. Some seaweed and iodine, but limited. Bacon on the barbecue and smoked lemon parts. Clean. Love it.

    Nicely oily and mouth coating with immediately an explosion of vanilla, lime, liquorice and walnuts. The peat offers a grand smokiness with a brackish note, while the pepper sets your mouth aflame. Rather straightforward, but very good, so no harm done.

    The finish is long and medicinal. Tar, citrus fruit, pepper and salt and lots of smoke.

    Lovely Laffie. Around 60 EUR way back when, but today you’ll have to pay something extra of course.

    A true classic bottled by Thomas Ewers and a really wonderful Laphroaig!
