Nose
Peppery. Seaweed. The sea. Some iron-like notes.
Palate
Very oily. Sweet, but also salty. Long flavour development. Seems a mature, restrained, rounded, expression of Laphroaig; and then…
Finish
Sudden explosion of salt and pepper.
Comment
I enjoyed this very much, but it does not add a great deal to the canon.

Dave Broom

Nose
Immediate: smoked haddock, creosote/tar, hessian, peat smoke with lovely sweet fruitiness behind. In time, leather. Great.
Palate
Smouldering peat fires, heather, violet. Dry oak balanced by lovely toffee sweetness in the middle of the palate. Complex.
Finish
Long, peaty, tarry.
Comment
A huge, rich and strangely elegant Laphroaig. Miles better than the official 15 Years Old.
