laphroaig px cask

Postby Jonwin » Tue May 01, 2012 3:02 pm

Hi everyone,

Has anybody heard of this new Laphroaig out called the PX. the PX apparently stands for Pedro Sherry cask.
I have a chance to get a bottle of it, it has no age on it so I am wondering if it's Worth it. have you heard about it, or better yet, tried it?

Thanks :)

Here is a link to it on Laphroaig's Web page

I look forward to trying this one. Currently it's just travel-retail only and replaces the Triple Wood (i never liked the Triple Wood). I'm not sure of the age of this whisky (less than 10 years old apparently) but i know the PX aging was only for the last year. It spent most of it's life in Maker's Mark bourbon with a short 9 month spell in quarter casks before finishing in the Pedros for a year. Peat and PX is a risky balance, may explain the tentative 12 months.

Lagavulin Distiller's Edition is in Pedro Ximenez, but I don't think there's much (if any) difference between sherries, that you can detect in the whisky. I love peated whiskies with sherry finish - Uigeadail is my favorite whisky, right now. I liked the Triplewood.
