Tasting notes
Taster   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.
8.8
Taster   Michael Jackson
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.
