Relax, refresh, rejuvenate. It just fits. The eleven friends of whisky can describe it best.
The whisky is from the nose already great and just so wonderfully own and intense. The Laphirauchnote is just so mega present and is already pouring in the smoke. But an extraordinary freshness. Lemon and grilled ham follow. Something salted brown trout in the end!
In the mouth a great start with a lot of power and equal to a decent cargo oak. A touch of ginger and coconut. Then comes the sweetness in the form of toffee and vanilla pudding.
The spare rips on the description I get if only very subtly in the background. The also described "Jamaican rum cake" rather not. Although there is an association of Jaffa Cake.
The smoke is just right for me and not so dominant. But he is always there and puts on the cheeks inside.
For almost infinite finale again intense sweetness with salt and tart oak. Just before it's finally over, the BBQ notes come at the very end.
Conclusion: GREAT. Thank you!
