Nose

Non... attendez... c'est du Laphroaig ? Vraiment ? Où est la tourbe ?  On décèle un peu d'alcool de fruits, du vernis à bois, un peu de paraffine, des notes médicinales (quand même). Après aération, voici enfin quelques traces de tourbe. 

Taste

Un peu amer, faiblement sucré. Toujours de la paraffine, des plantes médicinales, du bois. 

Finish

Amer, cireux et herbeux. Pas mal de poivre. 

Comments

Un Laphroaig étrange, à peine tourbé et assez amer. 

A ce prix, passez votre chemin.

Nose

At the front of the nose I get quite some ashes and smoke, covering the vanilla and grains like a soothing blanket. Then some typical iodine and greasy coals follow. Bonfire on the beach. Fish oil. Seaweeds. Lemons in a sheep stable. Evolves from sweet to sweet & sour to end in a midly sour aroma. Carries water well. When diluted I get an unmistakable, but rather pleasant, scent of plasticine.

Taste

Vanilla and citrus are the two dominant flavours on the tongue, wrapped in a jacket of smoke, peat, silt and pepper. Sturdy palate that delivers more than the promise of the nose. Stockfish. Oyster sap. A bit creamy. Adding water makes it a lot sweeter, as it puts the vanilla on the spot.

Finish

The long finish on citrus and pepper with loads of peat smoke make this a typical Laffie. And that is always good news.

Comments

Good stuff! Around 95 EUR.
