This is Laphroaig's latest 'travel retail exclusive' and is first matured in first-fill bourbon casks, before further maturation in European oak casks. It's un-chill-filtered.
On the nose, there's the usual Laphroaig seaweed and peat smoke, with frankincense, black pepper, a sweet brininess and vanilla. In the mouth, it's full-bodied, with a big hit of spicy peat smoke, followed by waves of liquorice, cola, pepper and raisins. The finish is big and smokey, very peppery, and then vanilla pokes through to soften the smoke a little.
A great Laphroaig.
