If I can read my notes properly from a tasting at Laphroaig, this is a
vatting from 33 casks, most of them 9-15 yo bourbon casks plus 2
additional 17yo sherry butts.
feels a bit faint/weak on the nose altogether - peat, vanilla, musty, fermented fruit (apples & pears), cooked pears, bright wood, wet tobacco leaves, also a touch of cigarette ashtray, salty, new sneakers ? (84)
nice oily mouthfeel, peat smoke, a touch of earth, then quite a bit of perfume sweetness/pear ester, (83)
interesting sweet / sour / bitter / salty / smokey mix at the beginning of the finish, but left over remain mostly pear/pineapple wine-gummy & smoke with a dry woody and alcoholic edge. (82)
