Typical Laphroaig nose, lots of medicinal notes and peat smoke, brine, lemon oil, then hay, little bit of tar, tobacco, and the lightest raisin and prune notes. Honey and smoked vanilla. Nice.
Yum. Perfect alcohol level, warm and a light bite, very full with good sweetness, apple juice, good dose of peat smoke and medicinal notes, some toffee, lots of barley, then some oak. The second chew is even richer and more complex with some peppermint, smoke still building up, light ginger joins in. If this was affordable today it would be among my "always open" bottles for sure. Third chew also brings waffles, crème chantilly, a bit of custard, toasted barley. Complex and yet so balanced, and first of all very tasty, and a huge dram to boot.
Peppermint, band-aids, peat smoke, custard, barley, and smoked vanilla. Marvellous, but a bit short.
