a rather sweet Islay, so CAOL ILA and Laphroaig OUTSIDE, we go on LAGAVULIN in 8 years:
sweet, maritime nose, a little grassy and fruity on fresh, wet citrus, with pearl peel, some smoke and lemony vanilla
the mouth is more marked, on the fruits a little candied (always citrus lemon), the peat appears more present here, deeper, the port is not far with dried fish hints from the cages on the dock!
the sweet sensation persists and detonates, with pear syrup juice here, amplified by spices, the more grassy sensation remains.
the finish is on dry peat, vanilla, lemon, simple but long and sweet.
