  1. Kantenmechaniker scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    This combination of Laphroaig and Highland Park fits very well, the Laphroaig supports the Highland Park smoke very well and it also brings a nice grapefruit note. I don't really like floral whiskeys, but in this combination I do.
    • Nose
      Clear smoke rises in the nose, with grapefruit, a little sweetness, almonds, floral notes, flowery, a little honey, vanilla, you can smell the Laphroaig clearly and also that it has been around for a few years, some pepper, a little oak, after the first sip the Highland Park gets through the nose more, more floral than when you smell the first, heather
    • Taste
      starts very flowery, heather, then smoke, with sweetness, here too the grapefruit, oak, very floral, here comes the Highland vanilla, but mainly floral, short hint of herbal tea with honey, nice combination of laphi and HP, intense, complex, it's fun, very creamy
    • Finish
      dry smoke on the palate, still the grassy, oak, slightly tart, long-lasting, sweetness flashes from time to time, here the sweet tea association plus smoke is best, then fresher with a little mint

    A bouquet of flowers with a fist in the mouth... I think the description fits the nose and taste don't go together at all. The whiskey polarized, have to wait and see what happens the bottle is freshly opened. At the moment it's good against garlic

      Great. Dark fruits ala strawberry blackberry and some apple and malt. With water, the fruits become lighter and oak is added

      Lavender. Complete bouquet syrup. , the mother of all flowers. That's awesome. Perfume with potpourri. roses and violets. Ok, I have to figure that out first. Let's leave it alone for now. but smoke comes too... Tastes like grandma under the arm

    • Nose
      87 87
      aromatic, but also a hint of alcohol, tickling the nose, yellow fruits and a hint of smoke from a distant campfire. Everything is subtle and interwoven. A hint of vanilla and a hint of extinct match (no sulfur notes). Takes time, evolves in the glass, makes a good impression. Slightly warm and sweet-fruity, smoky touch, slightly creamy.
    • Taste
      88 88
      with onset, somewhat fiery and slightly spicy, aromatic, smoky, slightly spicy and somewhat perfumed. Notes of barrel and coffee, bitter oak aromas.
      * a little water makes it appear fruity and takes a little bit of the sharpness away Now aromatic, perfumed, slightly fruity, delicious coffee aromas, delicately tart with oak, a hint of dark chocolate.
    • Finish
      87 87
      initially with coffee, delicately tart, hint of fruity, oak, soft and long fading. At the end delicate fruity-sweet and a touch of malty.

      Not quite round but still successful and tasty.

    So based on the code this should be a mix of Highland Park and Laphroaig. Interesting and it works really well. Can't taste to much of the Laphroaig though. More so like a good highland park. Maybe it was an HP teaspooned with Laphroaig :-) Happy with that.
