Laphroaig 20 yo (1990/2011), A.D. Rattray, 53,9 %

Review #165
This Laphroaig is from A.D. Rattray’s series ”Cask Collection” and comes from cask number 5924 which was a bourbon cask. Only 110 bottles were made. There is peat, citrus, hints of salt and iodine in the smell. Classic Laphroaig.

The taste is so great and cask strength suites this whisky perfect. Peat and iodine, with vanilla and hints of salt and citrus in the finish.

I really love older Islays. The peat is so dominant but still very gentle. The cask strength is spot on, and not “cask strength strong” at all. Candy for bearded men! I will rate this 92/100 (22/24/23/23).
