Nose
Peaty, burnt grass.
Palate
Cracker-like crisp maltiness. Leafy, herbal flavours. A hint of seaweed.
Finish
Smoky. Both appetising and warming. Very distinctive.
Comment
A lean and lively Laphroaig, more smoky than seaweedy. The flavours are long and persistent. Enjoyable, more-ish and appetising.

Dave Broom

87
Nose
Strangely pale. Immediate hot blast of iodine, toasting sea shell, tar and driftwood burning. Sooty, a touch of smoky paprika. In time lanolin and TCP.
Palate
Seems young. Bone dry. Very smoky, tarry neat. Water coaxes out a sweet fruitiness.
Finish
Dry.
Comment
The colour indicates a second/third fill cask: it's spirit not cask in charge.
