SMWS 29.151 (Laphroaig 24 yo 1989/2014)

2014, SMWS
Single malt - Islay
Red gold
50.8% ABV

Nose: Smoked ham, cotton candy, driftwood smoke, dried apricots, hints of seaweed.
Mouthfeel: Light body, loose, evaporates in the mouth.
Tasting: Bitter sour. Smoked ham, driftwood smoke, seaweed, caramel, dried apricots, hints of hazelnuts.
Finish: Long. Hazelnuts, seaweed, driftwood smoke, cotton candy.


A heavily sherried Laphroaig! Dry and meaty, yet some flavours give the impression of sweetness. The smoke is alluring. I enjoyed this very much, and it was bottled at my perfect drinking strength. Delicious dram.


I like this a lot.
