Nose
Mature with integrated smoke. Lightly nutty. Beeswax,dried apple,raisin,fruit cake mix and quietly exotic. Just a lick of fresh paint in the background. Tar, black fruits. Elegant.
Palate
A soft,almost dumb start picking up character in the middle where smoke begins to drift over cedar wood and begins to expand. Good balance and integration.
Finish
Robust with chestnut,blackberry tea and the embers of a peat fire.
Comment
The key here is balance.

Nose
Oaky,earthy. Damp wood,humus. Liquorice. Touch of cocoa bean.
Palate
Firm,tangy.Just a touch of sweetness then the assertive presence of oak. A good oaky grip. Once the wood screen is pulled up,loads of liquorice comes on stage.
Finish
Dry,oaky,slightly astringent.
Comment
Oak dominates but still allows other notes to express themselves. There is a touch if stiffness which annoys me in this dram. But the peat one can expect from a Laphroaig is hidden.
