This time another Islay whisky:

  • Laphroaig PX Cask (48%)

I got 2 samples of this one and must say it was an interesting one.

Color

Old gold

Nose

Campfire, with some hints of the sea. In the far background some sweetness of the PX casks.

Taste

Nice balanced flavors. Again campfire with some salty notes and in the background sweetness of the PX casks. No heat at all despite the 48% abv.

Finish

Long, nice smoke and with a little sherry sweetness.

Comments

Very nice whisky with great balance. Nice balance and lots of subtle flavors. Also no overkill of smoke!

Score = 85-87/100
