My Tasting Notes:
Colour: Bright copper
Nose: Burning bandages soaked with iodine, cherries, cassis, chocolate, cloves and pepper.
Palate: Dry peat, mixed berries, dark chocolate, cinnamon, cloves, hints of tannins and pepper.
Finish: Long, fruity and smoky.
Overall: An unusual sherried Laphroaig, the wine takes away some of the maritime peat punch and replaces it with a nice fruitiness.
Rating: 86/100 – Price Tag $$$$$ – Value for your Money $$$$$
