Michael Jackson

Nose
Big, seaweedy, medicinal, slightly sharp tang.
Palate
Firm, malty, grassy, with sweetness, spiciness and oily, olivey, bitterness.
Finish
A return to seaweed. Very appetising.
Comment
A distinctively Laphroaig-led blend, even though that distillery and this blend are now owned by separate companies.

Jim Murray

Nose
A subtle and seductive mixture of peat and seaweed. Mellow grain thins this out backed by a salty background and compelling sweet malt.
Palate
The peat is dominant but checked by a complex fusion of sweet malt, salt and oak.
Finish
The soft peats cling to the roof of the mouth as toffee and coffee ensure a bitter-sweet finish.
Comment
Classic blended whisky which lets the grain maximise the complexity of peated Islay malts.
