    Has a friend brought.
    Let's try ...

    The smoke in the nose does not immediately remind of Laphroaig.
    The scent is rather mild, delicate.

    Behind it damp, young wood.
    Spices round off.

    Slightly sweeter in the mouth, but quite mild.
    Almost, he does not even have 40%.
    Herbs, especially carnation.

    Funny, that is very strong in the taste,
    but you do not taste alcohol.

    In the flavor, hint present kumquat and pineapple candied fruits and that's all. The characteristic medical theme is not developed. An extract for six months in fresh barrels imparts at least some strength to a spirit as flat as tundra. Aftertaste with a noticeable bitterness. Why? (((

    It is a full whisky with initially a sweetie, followed by the classic dry, venous gray taste. Delicious aftertaste in which the rich fruits of the European barrels come back.

  8. markkuyper scored this whisky 77 points Expert Junior

    Absolutely not the best Laphroaig you can take. 
    • Nose
      Bit of smoke, some earth, grass, pepper. Prommising nose,....  
    • Taste
      Sweet and Smokey, hints of salt and pepper. Rather flat taste, not what you would expect with the nose. 
    • Finish
      To short,..... in my opinion. Wood, grass, salty.
