As you'd expect, Batch 15 is already sold out via the distillery website, demonstrating that these cask strength offerings are losing no momentum, or that the latest batch is particularly worth seeking out - or both! Peat smoke, heather and sea salt run wild at 56.5% ABV. Get it while you can.

Other reviews... We do not follow all batches, all I'll say is that I've kept one of those early 1-litre 'green stripe' versions stashed away. I agree, not the same paradigm, having said that I thought last year's batch 14 had been very good (WF 86)… Colour: gold. Nose: perhaps a little too much wood smoke at first, too many wood spices too, but the rest seems to be rather perfect, salty, medicinal, in short Laphroaig. With water: paint! Then engine grease and tarmac, and of course those old tarry ropes found on a beach at low tide etc. Now any proper medicinal note has gone. Mouth (neat): good, powerful, piney and salty arrival, with crystallised lemons in the back and a growing smokiness. With water: straightforward, peaty, once again a tad too much on oak spices for me (hell, let's just forget about those stunning tropical fruit in the early versions!) but it still has it, largely.  Finish: long, rather tarry, simply much more on straight smoke than older young Laphroaigs. Comments: let me give you an example… 86 points -
