I couldn’t resist the humour of this Laughfrog Highland Malt Scotch.
The mispronunciations of Laphroaig are legendary – why not turn it into a marketing opportunity?
Pity Select Drams bottled it with Highland Malt – perhaps too close to the bone for Islay?
Anyway – it made my glass.
The first thing I noticed – or rather didn’t – was a rich phenolic peat smoke. A more muted sweet biscuity malt greeted me instead.
This followed into the palate which developed a full bodied mouthfeel.
A lovely drying gentle spiciness brought up the tail end.
An entertaining easy going malt with a touch of character & perhaps a dash of peat in the background.
Certainly wouldn’t make you croak!
