There appears to be two editions of this Laphroaig  - 700351 and 700353. Only 700351 is still available in shops still. Anybody tasted the second edition 700351. Do all of the artist series have 2 editions. With the Auchentoshan from last series and Bowmore from the most recent series the second edition is noticeably better. I do not see anything on the label saying batch 1 or 2 just different cask numbers. Confusing and not very transparent. Is one batch for Europe and the other for the USA and then later unsold bottles make it back to Europe?

NOTE DE DÉGUSTATION (LMDW) :

  • Couleur : topaze.
  • Nez : intense, large, profond. De l"exotisme à fleur de peau (mangue, passion), des épices fortes (girofle, muscade), du chocolat noir, des fleurs capiteuses (genêt), du charbon, une tourbe humide qui respire le sel et les embruns. De l"iode, du cuir, du bacon plus quelques fruits rouges (fraise). Une volupté, un soyeux incomparable. En un mot, ce Laphroaig est énorme.
  • Bouche : merveilleuse d"onctuosité. Elle propose immédiatement toute une kyrielle de fruits, classiques, exotiques, acidulés, sucrés, amers, à la peau duveteuse ou bien plus rêche, ... Puis, place à la tourbe qui se fait tour à tour humide, sèche ou réglissée. Une intense fumée (feu de cheminée) envahit alors le palais ainsi que des notes de tabac, de zan et de bonbon pour la toux.
  • Finale : elle caresse littéralement le palais et l"enrobe d"une fine couche de goudron et de tabac frais. Quelques fleurs des champs parsèment les tourbières qui s"offrent à nos regards. Désormais, plus d"alternative, on est et on restera les pieds enfoncés dans la tourbe. Le Saint-Graal pour les amateurs. La rétro olfaction procure la sensation agréable de fumer un grand Havane. le verre vide est marqué par le cœur d"artichaut et la racine de gentiane.

Wrong cask number it´s 700353. I have this bottle. Don`t take the information from LMDW website it´s often wrong and the pictures are not real ones (for example degree is 49% on the picture for this bottle instead of 60,1)
