Laphroaig 12 yo 2000/2013 (51.7%, The Perfect
Dram, refill sherry)
it's a seawatery and camphory one, it seems. So camphor and eucalyptus (that
would be Vicks', wouldn't it) and quite some menthol, with a mild smoke, then
some liquorice and touches of tinned pineapples that remind me of the old 10 CS.
Keeps developing for a long time, this baby shouldn't be rushed. With water:
fab. Smoked passion fruits and mangos, enough said.
Mouth (neat): lovely! Big
peat smoke, sweets and jellybeans, all flavoured with tropical fruits, and then
a huge saltiness again. There's this peat/tropical fruits combo that used to
work so well in much older Laphroaigs. Hurray! With water: grapefruits and
citrons are coming out, together with even more salt and a dry ashy side. Finish: long and sharp, chiselled, very ashy and smoky. And briny.
extremely great, give it a little time and it'll remind you of the best 10 yo
Cask Strength. Well done again Whisky Agency, really loved this one. SGP:557 - 91 points.
