Laphroaig 25, 2016 release, 48.6%

 

Laphroaig 25, 2016 release, 48.6%. A vatting of second-fill oloroso sherry casks and american oak ex-bourbon casks. Part of the new re-design in packaging which started a few years ago.

Nose: amber, light smoke, hint of fruit comes later in the smell, very interesting.

Palate: slight cherry, mellow smoke, wood comes last, staged tasting.

Finish: short, little to no smoke.

I like long intense finishes, but with such a flavor, a short finish is welcome. It's obviously a mellowed laphroaig where the fruity notes are able to rise above the peaty smoke. I initially tasted light smoke and then it turns into a staged fruity profile. There is a certain mysterious balance that comes with it. Had this at Salon de Shimaji.

Grade: B
