Sweet, sumptuous and sultry smoke meanders out of the glass. A deep peat aroma, brine and hint of seaweed. Old rope pulls up spices from behind the first nosing showing sweet bread, cloves and candied ginger.
Deep and rich peat, a heady coal fire plumes explode coating the mouth. Minty freshness, waxy lemon peel and leather-bound parchment settles to a rounded, cream and honey sweetness
The creaminess fades leaving the smoke lingering which develop in lapping wave of brine, citrus and herbal hints and satisfying warmth.
Smoke on the Water: Laphroaig 23 Year Old
