The bottle, which is designed in an unusually minimal style, would almost look at home in laboratory; inspired by the sparse typography of periodic tables past, it invokes memories of school days, double chemistry and pencil shavings.
The whisky itself, although crisper and clearer than it's Laphroaigian cousins, has more character than the bottle would let on; (pleasant) hints of medicine and antiseptic loom over a much deeper, earthier flavours.
Pine and aniseed cut through lightly toasted almonds and clear runny honey. The finish is long and smoothing; this is a whipper-snapper of a Laphroaig with complexity beyond its years, an old head on young shoulders.
