Laphroaig PX Cask

Article: SCOMA-082114
Travel Retail Abfüllung
Laphroaig PX cask used three types of barrels:
American oak to Quarter Cask to Pedro Ximenez sherry.
The last maturation in the ex-PX Cask provides the rich, sweeter and full bodied notes which perfectly complement the peat-smoke tang of Laphroaig, creating an expression which needs to be appreciated over time to fully explore.
Tasting Note:

Nose:
A nice sherry aroma of sweet sultanas and raisins with a hint of sweet liquorice and only the slightest tang of peat. Adding a little water brings out the marzipan and almond aroma with a counterpoint of creamy nuts and lots of ripe fruits but again there's only the slightest tang of peat smoke.

Palate:
Without water a massive explosion of peat fills the mouth with huge amounts of oakiness only just moderated by the sweeter heavy sherry flavour.

Finish:
Concentrated peat and thick sherried oak with a deep dryness.
