Laphroaig – 10 years old cask strength +/- 2003

Although this is not a really old bottling, it’s clearly WAY more outspoken than contemporary bottlings. At first it smells rather sweet, but almost immediately there’s an explosion of bad, smokey things. Cigarets at the bottom of a beerbottle, burnt meat on the barbeque. It’s actually very meaty. And estery / fruity: banana, eucalyptus. Medium long, very nice, finish.

Rating: 90-100 out of 10
