Bedlington Malt Whisky Society sampled this bottle on the 28th of November 2012. This is a very impressive dram! Not as peaty as other Laphroaigs, and a lot sweeter.

Colour: Caramel, manuka honey.

Nose: Lots of smoke and sweetness. Large amounts of salt, seaside air and seaweed. The oak is hinted at. Some fruitiness starts to creep in with a small splash of water.

Body: Full, smooth.

Palate: Lots of smoke. Salted caramel and hazelnuts. Oaky, with vanilla hints from the wood.

Finish: Cigar smoke, bonfires and lots of smoky goodness! More salty sea air, and a surprisingly dry finish. Wood sap, sweet fruit almost appley notes.

A very enjoyable, very easy to drink and very moreish whisky! Perfect accompaniment to a cigar, roaring log fire and a comfy chair.
