Another Laphroaig now. This is a quite rare bottling from this distillery as it’s exclusively bottled for Dr.Jekylls pub in Oslo. It’s matured 4 years in an ex-bourbon barrel and then another 3 years in a Pedro Ximenez hogshead from warehouse 9.
On the nose: Smoky and medicinal. Redwine, dark berries, menthol, winegums, seasalt and loads of peat. More smoke and a hint of licoris with water.
On the palate: Heavy and dry peatsmoke. Burnt fish on a bonfire, still very salt and medicinal with a hint of seaweed. More salt and tobacco with water. A hint of sweetness in the finish, some toffee and smoky seaweed.
Classic Laphroaig with a drier feel to the palate than usual and a more prominent sherry note on the nose. All good stuff.
