My Tasting Notes:
Colour: Pale straw
Nose: Smouldering rubber wellies, vanilla, lemon zest, hints of pineapple, ginger and pepper.
Palate: Peat, vanilla, lemon, porridge and ginger with a slightly bitter twist.
Finish: Long, smoky and dry.
Overall: Quite unusual for a Laphroaig and obviously from a worn-out cask. Not all bad, but not all good either.
Rating: 76/100 – Price Tag $$$$$ – Value for your Money $$$$$
Tasted blind for the Malt Manics Awards 2011, re-tasted for notes.
