    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.

    The Laphroaig PX Cask is made with whisky matured in three types of cask - American oak casks, Quarter casks and the titular Pedro Ximénez casks. This leads to a flavour profile which ties together classic, powerful Laphroaig smoke and wine-like sweetness. It was originally released for Travel Retail.

    If the idea here was to present what would basically be a rehashed Quarter Cask with added complexity, the plan has backfired. Oddly, despite having seen the same cask types, this has notably less substance, depth, and maturity than the Quarter Cask. Okay on its own, but pales in comparison.

    On a side note, if you think you might like what this one seems to offer, head straight over to the Lagavulin Distiller's Edition, which represents a vastly superior, even if slightly bigger investment.

    Not bad, but far from my favorite Laffie. I had rather spent that 65 EUR on something else.
    • Nose
      The nose is sweet on citrus, smoked ham, aspartaam, diesel oil and quite herbal (think camphor, thyme and marjoram). The ashes and smoke are quite discrete, to be honest. Red fruit appears, albeit in a stew. But the sweetness is somewhat chemical, which does not make me happy.
    • Taste
      I would have loved some more body as well. It starts quite tannic on oak wood and bakery spices, before some peat, burnt wood and caramel enter into the fray, side by side with the sweet fruit like strawberry, grapefruit and blackberries. It is a bit like a basket of red fruit simmering on the BBQ with a good dose of BBQ sauce on top.
    • Finish
      In the rather short finish, it quickly turns bitter and dry. I do get some red fruit and chocolate.

    A really good malt. Typical PX sweetness is present, but plays great with the smokiness. Wood rather in the background. A slightly younger but thoroughly rewarding malt, especially considering the value for money.
