Martine Nouet

Nose
Big, rich, intimidating, sherried. Resolutely by the shore. The medicinal touch mingled with oaky tones. Burning applewood log.
Palate
Sweet and silky. Sherry elegantly balanced by peat. Camphor is integrated in oak, giving way to a complex range of flavours.
Finish
Dry, spicy, light smoke.
Comment
Age acts as a melting pot. All the distinctive Laphroaig features are there but combined into oak. Interesting.

Dave Broom

Nose
Rich and powerful with hanging smoke: applewood, smoked nuts, lightly tarry, wet leaves. Water brings out hessian, walnut and a sweet soft fruitiness, cider, wax. Perfumed.
Palate
This is dried fruits and a hint of melon. The phenols reduced to fish oil, Vick's inhaler, tar. Becomes drier to the finish.
Finish
Emerges like the engine of a fishing boat.
Comment
Laphroaig's tarry phenols seem the hardest to break down and reluctant to change.
