    This is a very interesting Laphroaig, coming from an ex-sherry cask. The peatyness and the sherry sweetness do not click together, as stated in a review below, but i think this isolated flavours brings honour to this very fine Laphroaig!

    Laphroaig with too many moving parts that don't click together. Full review is here: http://whiskygospel.com/2015/02/18/whisky-review-laphroaig-15-yo-1998-2014-signatory-vingtage-cask-700384/
