Travel Retail Exclusive for the 200th anniversary of Laphroaig.
I tasted 2x, both at the festival in Radebeul and the second time at home in the comparative test with Laphroaig 25 yo and Taliskr 30 yo.
In Radebeul, I bought a shot for 4 €, but at the end of the festival they were distributing, or the hand went away and it was big from a small dummy, so I was left for pouring into a bottle and for homework. The impressions at home and at the festival were the same, but a direct comparison with L25 and T30 was a good experience.
Aroma: In my first impression, I came across as a slightly finer version of Laphroaig. Sweet smoke, sea salinity. Iodine has a bit of edged edges, but it's here. Undershot rope, fresh citrus, fresh to converge. (88 pts)
Taste: At first I was very gentle, yet only 43%, but then it opened. Sweet and salty, iodine, tar. Tar mainly in a long aftertaste, but overall it would need to add to% alcohol and fullness, is unfortunately somewhat sparse. (87 pts)
Summary: It is not bad at all (if we do not pay the price), but a higher voltage would make her feel good. Deservedly the weakest in this comparative test.
