Nose

In der Nase ist er überraschend zurückhaltend. Man bemerkt den Rauch, etwas Holz und eine schwere dunkle Süße.

Taste

Der Rauch aus dem Torffeuer und eine schwere knackige Süße aus dem Pedro Ximenez Sherry kämpfen auf dem Gaumen um die Vorherrschaft. Voll und intensiv. Mit der Zeit kristallisieren sich einige Komponenten heraus: medizinischer Rauch, reife Früchte, Sherry und eine feine Leder- und Holznote

Finish

Auch im Abgang streiten sich Rauch und Sherry weiter darum, wer denn nun bleiben darf. Beide Komponenten bleiben lange spürbar. Mit der Zeit wird er trockener aber nie bitter und der Sherry verweilt sehr lange im Mund. Weiterhin Holz und Leder, die mit nachlassendem Rauch stärker auffallen. Sehr lang anhaltend

Greenkeeper gave this whisky 87 points

Ergänzende Anmerkung: Einer der wenigen (!) Laphroaig Whiskies, der stark und eindeutig von Oxidation profitiert.

Jetzt, da meine Flasche nach etlichen Monaten fast leer ist, ist die anfangs nichtssagend-flache Nase einem vielschichtigeren, komplexen Eindruck all der typischen Laphroaig Elemente mit dem zusätzlichen Schub von typischen PX-Fass Eindrücken gewichen. Sehr viel und sehr eindeutig besser !

Auch im Geschmack hat die Abfüllung durch monatelange Oxidation klar gewonnen, wenn auch nicht so überdeutlich wie in der Nase. Hervor zu heben ist, dass die Abfüllung dabei nicht im geringsten an Rauch und dem damit verbundenen Geschmacksgenuss eingebüßt hat (ich verwende Vacuvin-Verschlüsse und vakuumiere alle 2 Wochen nach) .

Ich muss meine Wertung nun um mindestens einen, nein wenn ich richtig überlege sogar zwei Punkte (auf 87) erhöhen. So deutlich ist der Unterschied. Nachdem die Abfüllung bei vielen Shops jetzt auch zu vernünftigeren Preisen angeboten wird, ist sie schon fast wieder eine Empfehlung.

....got a whip in my hand, Baby...and a girl or a husky at the leathers end........ it's alright............ (BÖC)
