Nose

A nice, warm, salty, vanillic nose, with peat that is harnessed well, and there's a certain heft to it that I like.

Taste

Here is where it goes south... I love Laphroaig, but this is very watery!!! Just that alone, I will not recommend. 

Finish

Watery again, short, chalky, uneven finish... 

Comments

One of the most underwhelming Laphroaigs I've had in a while. Had a nice start, but tripped early on and never finished the race. This is why I rarely buy official Laphroaigs nowadays.

  • N: Melon & orange juice, fruit punch,... fruit cocktails even. The cask mix/bag of tricks brings an interesting slant on the Laphroaig house style.
  • T: Im aware this particular bottle is soft (super-oxidised), but its still able to relate some of its former glory. Theres more fruit punch for the palate, and style-wise its (older) Bowmore-esque.
  • F: Soft fermented fruits, dry, dark oak, tea tannins.
  • C: Super oxidised/flat bottle, still able to show its worth. This [cleverly] 'doctored' Laphroaig reminds me [style-wise] of Laphroaig 'PX Cask' WB - earlier batches of which were very good. Scores 86 as it is, but i reckon it was better when fresh.
