To close out Travel Exclusive Week (day 5) we are visiting one of my favorite distilleries in Scotland, from the Islay region, Laphroaig.
The Laphroaig PX cask is a travel retail exclusive Scotch whisky. A peated Islay whisky that is triple matured and bottled at 48% abv. First matured in used American Oak, then Quarter Casks and finally, Pedro Ximenez (PX) sherry casks.
Color: Deep and rich with a red hue
Nose: Amazing! Typical Laphroaig, smokey and reminiscent of BBQ but then through the smoke hints of sweetened fruits appear.
Palate: Smokey but not as deep as the 10 or QC, the PX cask mutes some of the smoke but I struggled to find the hints of sweet from the PX finish.
Watch our review below:
As a fan of scotch and other whiskeys I was tired of looking up reviews for new whiskeys that just oozed of snobbery. I wanted to create an outlet for average Joe's who don't have a sommelier palate. Born and raised in Long Island, New York, I moved to San Diego, California in 2010 with my wife. I'm also a fan of MMA, pro-wrestling, comic books, video games and strongman. All subjects are topic for discussion on the podcast.
