    Bottle was just below the shoulder level & had been open almost 6 years at time of this sampling.

      Light Peat, then it’s gone...Faint sweetness, very slight blend of stone fruits. Peats back lightly though and it’s staying. That is until I give it a swirl then the sweetness returns briefly. Peats back.

      Yea my names Laphroaig! This one has the typical Laphroaig notes but with orchestrated smoothed edges. The typical Laphroaig can cause your eyes to open wide with the pop in the flavor. This 18 year old is slow and steady. Smoke, Rich and Sweet, some Shortbread notes, slight pepper

      Medium to long finish. That light Peat Smoke, smoke from Cooking red meats, pepper slowly fading to nothing.....

    How can you tell which year the bottle was released/bottled?

    Fantastic! All the smokiness expected of a Laphroaig, but 18 years tempers the phenolics to yield a sublime dram.  Not in your face like the 10 year old, but smooth, complex, and smokey.
