Oloroso, burnished bronze, mahogany with placemat stripes, dark honey, Royal English Breakfast Tea.
Mild nose with subtle hints of sherry, smoke, PQL salt, cinnamon, treacle, pine, and some fumes.
Smooth smokiness, peat, sweet wood, PQL salt, boysenberry, cream, citrus, pepper, lint and dust.
Long finish with cream, and salt (not just PQL salt), caramel, burnt orange, earth (loam), dust, and sawdust.
A very nice pleasant dram that much milder than is typical from Laphroaig. Some say better with added water! It was a little underwhelming, but nice nonetheless.
