Laphroaig 18 Year Old
Many thanks to David at Glenuntitled.com for the sample of this lovely Laphroaig 18 Year old.
I've always liked Laphroaig Whisky, it's medicinal peaty notes work well with me and i've been a Friend of Laphroaig since January 1998 so i've definitely had a thing about it for a while now.
The peat here is medicinal and light not the smoky bbq that you get with Adbeg or Caol Ila and for me it works brilliantly.
A great whisky and well worth picking up a bottle. You can buy a bottle (or a sample) from Master of Malt
The trademark medicinal note is there but no smokyness, the peat is light and very tcp in nature, somethign very sweet and orange/citrus peel like
more of the tcp, wood spice, and again sweet orange peel
long, very long in fact, sea salt and crispy seaweed
