|Keith Wood||Glass: Classic Malt
- Colour: Rich, glowing amber
- Nose: Initially slightly toasted peat, opening quickly to include the smoke of an open bonfire in the middle of a Scootish jetty in the Atlantic.
- Palate: A rich Laphroaig with lots of peat, little smoke and a faint medicinal touch.
- With 3 drops of water: Much more smoke on the nose. A creamy palate of full-strength peat.
- With 3 more drops of water: Smoke and sea-air in abundance on the nose. In-depth, slightly medicinal peat on the palate.
- Overall Impression: A wonderful Laphroaig which takes a little water to really open to full effect. |
|Oliver Klimek||Nose: Even stronger than the previous version but a little less fresh, smoky bacon notes are rather dominant. -
Palate: Less salty but more of the aromatic spices, strangely no bacon on the palate. -
Finish: Very long, liquorish and spices. -
Overall: This batch puts an emphasis on the medicinal and spicy notes and cuts down on the maritime touch. |
