Laphroaig is a hard whiskey to love. They’ve campaigned on their uniquely acquired taste for years, and it’s more or less a pride point that the intensely smoky whisky is not for everyone. With 27, they’ve failed in their branding: this is a near perfect whisky, and the best peated release we’ve tasted so far.
Part of the perfection: gone is that nose-crinkling, saliva-burning,
