Pale gold
Nose

soft nose, needs air and time to open. Then yellow fresh fruits well mixed with the medicinal peat.

Taste

Mineral, wet stone, citric, here again some yellow fruits. Very good alcohol integration and precision (sharp). oysters and honey notes.

Finish

Good length, powerful saltiness.

Comments

Very Salty ending for a very nice LAPHROAIG, well worth the money because it's a particular one, not a soft and round one. Mineral indeed.

I love Islay
