Tasting Notes

"Of course, the signature Laphroaig peat smoke comes first but the sherry influence shows quickly with notes of dried fruits, Christmas spices, and nutmeg in the nose. Also a pleasant underlying saltiness acts as a reminder of Laphroaig's insular location. The palate is all about smoke peat as well, with aromas of star anise, spices, and roasted nuts. A dry and rather lasting finish. Overall, a typical Islay whisky with a sherried twist and a real must-taste."
