    I just tasted a recent 2017 bottling of this and I am fairly surprised that its still as good as I remember it to be. The px makes it easy to sip at 48%abv while still maintaining these lovely classic medicinal and leathery laphroaiggy notes. Not overtly complex but very enjoyable and definetly good value for money.

    Really interesting game between smoke, sherry and sweetness. He often changes his face. If you wait for the first sip, until it's only dry and then takes a new sip, the tart but is immediately gone and it starts again the game of sherry and sweet (in many others, it is just always tart when it once tart was).
    I love it.
    • Nose
      Smoke; occurs very maritim (iodine). Then comes a sweet, fruity note (my salivation begins immediately); Sherry is building up; there are spices and malt; after the first sip the malt becomes clearer; Every now and then walnut nuts. Boa, he's really powerful for me.
    • Taste
      Smoke and sherry are immediately strongly represented. Then comes a powerful, slightly bitter oak. In addition, there is also a really sweet note. Maritime kelp touch is there and the smoke is changing. It gets a little drier in the mouth. Reminiscent of extinct campfire. He is also spicy (chili), first thought that it is the alcohol, but is a distinct spicy sharpness. After some time in the mouth, the malt comes out clearly. Still quite mild overall.
    • Finish
      Smoke and sherry; Mouth is dry, the oak shows again from her slightly bitter side. The note of sherry evaporates and it remains long harsh and dry smoke back.

    Laphroaig PX Cask, originally for 'travel retail', you can now find the whisky in well-stocked specialist shops. One reason to try it - and to be thrilled!
    • Nose
      Subtle maritime and slightly phenolic smoke on the nose, sweet heather honey, herbs, sandalwood, marzipan, raisins and sherry. The alcohol is well integrated.
    • Taste
      Pleasant peat smoke, herbs, heather honey, mint, eucalyptus. Very full and warm. Soft on the palate
    • Finish
      Medium-long finish with pleasant sweetness and herbs. Soft and warm.
