    Enthusiasm: Nose 3/5 Mouth and Finale 4/5 Whisky n ° 1693
    • Nose
      Sweet, on smoked bacon, it is slightly medicinal.
    • Taste
      Bright, fruity, peaty, with hints of rubber.
    • Finish
      At once a bit bitter and tangy!

  3. Allandale scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Lovely young Laphroaig.
    • Nose
      Medicinal. Very smoky. Seasalt, seaweed. 
    • Taste
      Very sea salty again. Beachwalk, medicinal. Hospital air? Less smoky.
    • Finish
      Very long for me. Smoky  and salty.

  4. Archer scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Beautiful young smoker.
    • Nose
      Subtle fruit, strong smoke. Cool. Seawater, seaweed, salt. Salt liquorice, salmiac pastilles.
    • Taste
      Very fierce peat smoke displaces everything else in the flavors. Then comes a decent pinch of pepper and spicy paprika, a splash of lemon juice and a little vanilla. Machine oil, tar, seaweed.
    • Finish
      Medium and dry, cold smoke, salt, sea water, a little lemon.

  5. KayMeertens scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    • Nose
      Mineral is the word, even more so than peaty. Maybe even dusty. Orange and straw. With water there's bread and curry.
    • Taste
      Peppery, peaty and mineral. Straw, orange and curry.
    • Finish
      Peat, orange, curry and apple.

    Sweet herbal medicinal maritime, not an oustanding dram but as an everyday sip fits the bill.

  9. The_Independent scored this whisky 80 points Expert Senior

    Young and impetuous. Spicy alcohol and massive smoke characterize this bottling. Not my taste.

    - blind tasting -
    • Nose
      80 80
      Pungent alcohol, strong smoke, medically, cigar, some citrus, sugar beet syrup, cooked sugar beet, a bit earthy.
    • Taste
      79 79
      Hot, sweet and very smoky, ashes, cigarette, dusty / ashen in the mouth.
    • Finish
      80 80
      Too long remain the massive ashy notes in the mouth and unfortunately cover almost all other flavors.

  10. mothers_finest scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      86 86
      Laphroaigeypical nose, some citrus, cold smoke, caramel, a few orange peel. Nothing that totally flashed me now.
    • Taste
      90 90
      Very cool! Cold campfire smoke the finest! Very pleasant through the nose. Again burnt caramel, a bit of gum, cinnamon. Just what you expect from a young Laphi!
    • Finish
      87 87
      Good, long finish. Stable, smoky and salty, quite uncomplex.
