      Well balanced with sweetness and peat smoke

      It's an interesting example. A non-age-statement Single Malt Whisky which is bottled at purely natural color and it matured in FIVE different types of casks: Ex-Oloroso Sherry Cask, ex-Pedro Ximenes Sherry Cask, New American Oak Cask (not ex-Bourbon), Quarter Cask and the first fill ex-Bourbon Cask. It's chill-filtered and bottled at 40% ABV. You can find numbers of different descriptions of that Whisky in the Net, which surprises me a little bit, because it's quite easy to check the infos.
      Color: this is what makes me happy - beautiful, natural… pure gold
      Nose: FANTASTIC! What a richness of beautiful aromas. That surprises me the most! It's absolutely not that what I suspected. I said to myself: “If it's going to be a typical Laphroaig… there will be SMOKE - first of all… then smoke… and after a while… maybe something more”. But definitely not in this particular case. There's plenty of different aromas. 5 types of casks did their job perfectly.
      Marzipan, sherry, vanilla, peach, raisins, pears, bananas, sea breeze, forest air, bonfires, butterscotch. Here, the smokiness is rather untypical for Laphroaig - it's really sweet and aromatic! 24/25
      Palate: bitter chocolate, smoke, caramel, ripe bananas, vanilla, maple syrup. Pleasant, very mild, a bit watery 21/25
      Finish: cocoa, smoke, prunes, stewed apples, Sherry, yeasts, hay, rosemary. Rather short 19/25
      Balance: right next to the nose, this is the best part of this Malt. Five great value casks. That certainly works! Very complex, light and delicate Whisky. Great value for the price (I bought it for 25€ in Netto, Germany). If it would be un-chill filtered, the finish would be definitely longer… but the natural color is certainly the strong point of this Whisky.
      Recommended. Overall: 87/100

      Ein interessantes Beispiel. Ein Whisky ohne bestimmte Reifungszeit, der eine perfekte natürliche Farbe hat (ohne Zuckerkolör). Er lagert auch in 5 verschiedenen Fässern: Ex-Sherry Oloroso, Ex-Sherry PX, Neuen amerikanischen Eichenfaß, kleiner Quartercask und der Ex-Bourbon die erste Füllung. Der Whisky ist kühl gefiltert und hat 40% Alkoholgehalt. Mann kann viele unterschiedliche Informationen über den Whisky in Internet lesen, was ich ein bisschen merkwürdig finde, weil es ziemlich einfach ist, diesen falschen Informationen zu korrigieren.
      Farbe: Das macht mich glücklich - wunderschöne, natürliche Farbe… reines Gold
      Nase: FANTASTISCH! So viel schönen Aromen. Das überrascht mich am meisten! Es ist absolut nicht das, was ich erwartet habe. Ich sagte mir: "Wenn er ein typischer Laphroaig wird ... wird es RAUCH sein... dann immer noch Rauch ... und nach einer Weile ... vielleicht etwas mehr". Aber definitiv nicht in diesem Fall. Es gibt viele verschiedene Aromen. 5 Sorten von Fässern haben ihre Arbeit perfekt gemacht.
      Marzipan, Sherry, Vanille, Pfirsich, Rosinen, Birnen, Bananen, Meeresbrise, Waldluft, Lagerfeuer, Karamell-Sahnesoße. Die Rauchigkeit hier ist eher untypisch für Laphroaig- es ist wirklich süß und aromatisch! 24/25
      Körper: Bitterschokolade, Rauch, Karamell, reife Bananen, Vanille, Ahornsirup. Angenehm, sehr mild, jedoch etwas wässrig 21/25
      Finish: Kakao, Rauch, Pflaumen, gebackene Äpfel, Sherry, Hefe, Heu, Rosmarin. Eher kurz 19/25
      Balance: gleich neben der Nase, das ist der beste Teil dieses Malt. Fünf großartige Fässer. Das funktioniert auf jeden Fall! Sehr komplexer, leichter und delikater Whisky. Gutes Preis-Leistungs-Verhältnis (ich habe es für 25€ in Netto in Deutschland gekauft). Wenn er noch nicht-kalt gefiltert wäre, wäre der Nachgeschmack länger sein. Aber dieser Whisky hat keinen Zuckerkolör drin und das ist schon Klasse. Ich empfehle ihn.
      Insgesamt: 87/100

      Nosing: Peat Smoke Medicinal Smoke Vanilla Malt Salt Alcohol Sweet Spices

      Taste: Peat Smoke Medicinal Smoke Salt Seaweed Spices Lemon Sweet

      Finish: Peat Smoke Medicinal Smoke Malt Hay Honey Spices Sweet

      Comment: Very peaty and medicinal aromas when it first comes to nosing, then there were some fruitiness and sweetness behind, with faint vanilla and malt notes. The palate was quite strong an thick, I would have thought it was more likely a 50% than a 43%. Intense peat and medicinal smokiness carried through and the aftertaste was long and wonderful.
