Distilled in 1998, this Laphroaig opus is composed of three Ex-Madeira Wine cask.
Black cherries, figs and raisins, blood oranges, citrus fruits, honey cereals, diaphanous veil of iodized earthy smoke. The palate is medicinal and fruity; dried fruits, black cherries, oranges, plums, raisins. Medicinal elements and roundness in the mouth, roofing pitch, earthy peat, sea salt, camphor and vanilla-flavored vanilla and honey lozenges, antiseptic, but the texture is oily and feminine. Camphor, maritime and spicy cinnamon finish. A good Laphroaig, singular but 280 $ for a 500ml ... No way.
Oh that's good, a very intense Laphroaig, but so well balanced that it looks almost sweet. I love. Nose: Impressive, a Laphroaig where sherry almost takes over. In short, sweet sherry, chocolate, beautiful peat smoke and a hint of pepper. Palate: Finally, we find in the mouth the beautiful peat smoke typical of Laphroaig, pepper, burnt wood and sweet sherry to marry everything. Finish: A good length, salty and smoky, with a subtle touch of sweet fruit.
