Nose
Lots of smoke, molasses, coal-tar soap. Very focused.
Palate
Increasingly dry. Bladderwrack and machine oil.
Finish
Smoke and oak plus brine, but also sweeter notes trying to come through.
Comment
Good all-round Laphroaig. Sound stuff.

Dave Broom

Nose
Peat reek and deck oil, toasty oak, then a sweet cereal: Sugar Puffs. Fruit, dried orange peel. Begins to dry and smoke: wet canvas, iodine.
Palate
Supple with a sweet, generous mid palate balanced by crisp malt/oak. Smoke on the back palate: tar, peppered mackerel, light salt.
Finish
Lightly oily. Liquorice and smoke.
Comment
Good balance between sweet/soft and dry/peat.
