    A great whisky. Not as direct as most Laphroaig standard bottlings, but much more complex. With a hint of water the whisky opens even more.
    • Nose
      There is so much going on here. Sweet smoke meets ham, grapes, lime, ashes, honey and maple syrup.
    • Taste
      Now comes the ash-like smoke through properly, followed by the sweetness of toffee, fleshy notes, smoked salt and some vinegar. The texture is wonderfully oily, if you add some water.
    • Finish
      Finally, this Laphroaig is very long with a potpourri of notes to be found in the aroma and taste.

    SMWS Tasting Notes

    Colour: Clean as a whistle

    Flavour profile: Peated

    Matron was dressed in freshly starched linen with ozone and early morning dew. The ward tingled with lemon bleach, menthol rub and clean alcohol. Mid-morning allowed a break for a pithy espresso and a smoke with lighter fuel, Cuban cigars and herbal tobacco. And curiously, iced wine and pickled onions. A dash of water brought out waxy grapefruit and tempered smoke soothing the patient. Sweeter maltiness of char grilled sourdough topped with olive tapenade and home grown tomatoes emerged. Bay infused rollmops herring and freshly smoked kippers. To finish sweet onion, salt and vinegar crisps. Matron’s work is done.

    Drinking tip: When a delicate touch is required
