Initially ther is an abundance of frruit and nuts on the nose, this is followed by the damp wood and ash flavour we expect from Laphroaig.
The palate is again very fruity, with bananas and citrus. The smoke is gentle and does not overpower the delicate fruit. As the taste develops it becomes spicy and leaves a bitter taste of roast coffee.
A very long dry finish, with leather and tobacco.
