Laphroaig 23 yo 1991/2014 (52.6%, OB, first fill sherry and refill hogsheads, 5,000 bottles) Four stars An expensive bottling from last year that you can now find for from 300 to 500 Euros, depending of the smartness of the retailers (I won’t tell you who’s smart on the long run). Colour: gold. Nose: well, it’s not one of the complex old Laphroaigs, the style is already quite modern, even if there is, for sure, something medicinal and something earthy this time, all for the better. Green olives, seawater, perhaps even pickled gherkins, then the usual peat smoke and lemons, as well as touches of fino sherry and even vinegar (in a good way). Unless it was fino or manzanilla, the first fill sherry did not impart much, well, sherriness. With water: perhaps wet dogs (we’re sorry, dogs) and old kelp drying on a remote beach? Mouth (neat): a bit of drying oak in the arrival, which makes your tongue stick to your palate, then this very smoky, lemony and Laphroaigy development, not complex, but just very satisfying. With water: bizarrely, it does not swim too well. Takes on or two drops, but not a splash, which makes it a little ‘sawdusty’. Finish: rather long, and brinier than before. A very faint sucrosity in the aftertaste – was that the sherry? Comments: very good, just not my fav Laphroaig of all times. Perhaps just a little ‘simple’. SGP:457 - 86 points.
