Laphroaig PX Cask

by Oliver Klimek on November 14, 2012

48%


My Tasting Notes:

Colour: Dark amber
Nose: Tarry smoke, a freshly cleaned hospital hallway, liquorice, dried figs, hints of dark chocolate and cloves.
Palate: Rather strong and dry peat, liquorice, mixed dried fruit, cough syrup, nutmeg, cloves, hints of pepper.
Finish: Long, fruity and smoky.
Overall: The (mild) PX sweetness makes this an interesting variation on the Quarter Cask. It is well worth a try although it shows a little less complexity.

Rating: 87/100 – Price Tag $$$$$ – Value for your Money $$$$$

I had been thinking of trying that one since I’ve really been enjoying the sherried peats… Alas not yet available in Canada. What if any other drams would you say are comparable? I may start looking for this as a trade.

Thanks!

Hard to say, I don’t think there really is a comparable dram. The sherry influence is fairly moderate, so the profile still is typically Laphroaig.

The regular Laphroaig Triple Wood should be similar but less sweet.
