Laphroaig PX Cask

Laphroaig is a frequent guest on my blog. Today it’s time for PX Cask. This version has been available in a short series for the Friends of Laphroaig, and now in larger quantities in Travel Retail.
This single malt is a result of aging in three types of casks. The first such as the classic 10 years old – Ex-Bourbon, the second Quarter Cask, and the third Pedro Ximenez sherry casks. Age is not specified.

N: in the first place peat, but not overwhelming, smoke, ash, quenched bonfire, everything is kept in a sweet atmosphere, further on something sugary, and even floral, fruits – sweet ripe peach, overripe nectarine, cherries, dates – very nice, water gives some fresh tones but weakens the impact of sherry,

T: here is also peat and smoke in the first place, spicy, peppery and warming, ripe sweet fruits: plums, apricots, also figs, then quite a lot of oak comes in and a touch of salt, water weakens the sherry influence, but strengthens the impression of a classic Laphroaig tasting,

F: quite long, with peat, smoke and woody tones.

Score: 86.

Interesting Laphroaig version, obviously peated, but additional maturation in Pedro Ximenez sherry casks added sweetness, flowers and fruits in the nose. The aroma is balanced and complex. The taste – somewhat lacks to the smell, as I expected more pronounced effect of sherry. Despite the 48% ABV you can drink without dilution. The water does not specifically helps in releasing the flavors and aromas, it reduces the impact of sherry, which is not what this whisky is all about.
