Laphroaig Cask Strength is regularly lauded as perhaps the best, affordable, young Islay whiskey and each batch helps affirm this. This is the new Batch 008, so lets get to it.
Rich, vegetal peat. Honey, butter, toffee, caramel and earthy pepper. Faint chemical notes.
Medium thickness, some heat, vegetal peat and sweet sugar. Fruity but more earthy than fruity. Mineralogy with some faint sherry character.
Long, with some heat. Earthy bandages, nice proof and smokiness.
Powerful, enticing, savory and an all around pleasure to enjoy.
