Laphroaig 27YO Islay Single Malt Whisky 700ml (Scotland)
Nose: A sharp tropical fruit burst is littered with macadamia nuts and suggestions of vanilla, wet ash and a sprinkling of sea-salt.
Palate: The tropical fruit opens up with soft citrus and delightful pangs of nectarines, banana and a suggestion of lychee. Sweet smoke smoulders and lingers, and jalapeños in brine give a savoury spice that white pepper cuts through beautifully. Punchy, nutty espresso and polished wood rounds it off.
Finish: Long and dry, with notes of tobacco tin, spicy oak, some citrus and a touch of leather.
