SMWS 29.83 (Laphroaig 20 yo 1989/2010)

2010, SMWS

Single malt - Islay
52.3% ABV

Nose: Smoke, cream, vanilla, oranges, honey, grilled pork, hints of raisins, hints of oatmeal.
Mouthfeel: Medium body, syrupy, smooth, tingly.
Tasting: Bitter. Vanilla, oranges, smoke, honey, raisins, black pepper, cloves, hints of grilled pork.
Finish: Long. Black pepper, smoke, honey, walnuts.


Not as sweet as I thought it would be. Instead, there's a nice spicy, tingly peppery bite, with a meaty, tasty feel on the tongue. Laphroaig is one of those whiskies that takes sherry finishing really well, and it's hard to go wrong when I find one.


I like this.
