2018 Ultimate Spirits Challenge

Laphroaig Lore Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky (Scotland), 48% abv, $117.52

95
Extraordinary,
Ultimate Recommendation

Tasting Note:

Gently pleasing, yet rich aromas of roasted cocoa nibs, browned sugar, grilled moss, clove and dried citrus fruit complete the complex nose. What follows on the palate is a deeply balanced medley of wooded caramel, subtle honey, toasted leaves, medicinal menthol, and bitter chocolate that lingers on the tongue.
