Bright amber radiates from the premium snifter, mild peat and heavy sweetness rise from the glass. Apricots mix with caramelized sugar and toffee, tangerines dissolve from slightly mineral peat and hints of smoke. Amazingly, nuances of chocolate and cocoa are in the air. Mild and creamy, the harmonious nose invites to the first sip ...
Hazelnuts and smoky woody tones are spread over the tongue with earthy peat and heavy sweetness, while the Laphroaig flows gently and creamy through the throat. Spicy wood tones end in slightly burnt wood, the second sip intensifies the dark fruit and peat flavor. Voluminous and yet creamy mild, the heat is distributed on the palate, dark wood tones and old hazelnuts slosh with earthy peat through the mouth.
Slightly smoky and peaty Laphroaig rests on the tongue, dark fruit flavors and caramelized sugar show up again. The aftereffect of its powerful side comes to a close, then the reverberation fades and the flavors blur creamy before they fade away relatively quickly.
