This is a Signatory Vintage 17 year old Laphroaig bottled at 54.5% ABV selected by Binny’s.
Nose: Fruity for a Laphroaig, standard peat/medicinal notes with a bit of tart cherry.
Palate: Peat with some fruit notes and a bit of smoke – pretty standard here again.
Finish: Mostly peat with a bit of the oak peeking through.
Rating: 84/100 – Standard teenage Laphroaig – didn’t stand out in any one category.
Value for the money: These go for around $130 which is a bit steep – would rather buy the Laphroaig 18 OB for $30 less.
