Laphroaig Lp6 Elements of Islay Review

Hello again,

Last year, Lp5 was the best whisky at the show. So, high expectations. Although, I think that was Sherry and this is Bourbon.

A series of short reviews from Bristol Whisky Lounge 2016. 13/20

Lp6 51.3%
Colour: Gold
Body: Full
Nose: Classic older Bourbon Laphroaig. Very fruity, mango, pineapple, cinnamon, ginger. Very little smoke.
Taste: Soft arrival, fruit, mango, building spice and smoke.
Finish: Long length. Medicinal and mineral- Flint and bandages.
Notes: Very different to Lp5. That was very maritime. This is very reminiscent of the fully matured quarter cask I had at the distillery.

Review #112
