I was drinking fantastic whiskies bottled by Signatory for The Whisky Exchange with Tim Forbes on the Whisky Show when I saw on the side of the eye a glimpse of a strange Laphroaig bottle that I have never seen before…
Come on! You all know I love peat, what would you have done? I dropped my Caol Ila 29yo in the the bucked and moved to have a try of that under-the-table Laphroaig.
“It is a complex Laphroaig much in the league of Triplewood”
This dram has a amber-like color.
Nose (89): more than average. peat, wood, spices, honey, cloves, citrus.
Palate (89): powerful, oily. peat, wood, liquorice, spices, vanilla.
Finish (88): longer than average. peat, honey, spices.So based on other whiskies I have already tasted I rate this Laphroaig an Cuan Mor with 89 points over 100.

As far as I know the Laphroaig Triplewood was a success and any step taken in that direction has been a good thing for the distillery… so I think it was natural for them to keep pushing. I personally prefer their younger simpler expressions like Quarter Cask or the 10yo Cask strength releases ( now NAS ).
