Laphroaig Distillery Beam/Suntory
Inspired by the early work of Ian Hunter, last family member owner of the distillery. This Laphroaig offering uses Oloroso sherry butts, straight American white oak, PX seasoned hogsheads, Quarter Casks and first fill Bourbon Casks. The result is a natural sparkling gold color, peat and red fruit on the nose with some dry American oak, ash and more peat on the palette followed up by even more fruit on the finish. Gentle, smooth yet also mature this is a excellent bottle from our friends in Islay. Our Take:
This is the lightest expression in the Laphroaig line. This offering seems to be an introduction to the Laphroaig line, and nothing more than an introduction. It does a good job of that respect, but I would hold off calling it an introduction to Islay whisky in general. It is far too mild on all aspects of peat other than the dominant iodine and Band-Aid phenols that are more predominant in Laphroaig than other Islay whisky. If one wants to tiptoe into the Laphroaig line, this is your whisky. If, however, one wants to experience for the first time the joy of peated whiskey without diving head first into Islay, there may be others that are more "Charachteristically Islay" but lighter on the peat.

Aroma: Laphroaig light, iodine, Band-Aid, bonfire-smoke
Taste: salt, mild iodine, mild Band-Aid, very mild smoke
Finish: mild, just mild iodine, no heat, no warmth
Feel: slightly oily, somewhat chewy
