    Very smooth if not to say reluctant - actually rather weak - reminds me on the connoisseurs choice that often lacks of punch - not a good investment in my mind
    • Nose
      Very reluctant peat and smoke, nutty, old books, a bit leafy, whiffs of toffee
    • Taste
      Creamy, little iodine, nutty, old books again, hints of cooked oranges, a bit of toffee, milk chocolate
    • Finish
      Medium long, warm

    Oh, oh, oh! What a nice nose. Not a peat bomb, mind you. More modest peat, but all the more sherry and tobacco leaves from cigars. Autumn leaves, bay leaves, nuts, toffee and… cocoa! Surprisingly creamy on nuts, leather, bay leaves and slightly bitter oranges. Something like cherries and cold coffee. Excellent! And then that fantastic warm finish with a medicinal touch. Heavenly Laffie!

    Beyond the beautiful, all the joy is already packed (☜ Basically Sherry!)
    Smoked, iodized and peaty shreds have sharp edges and a rounded fragrance. Minerals, scents from the sea of bubbling seawater are very refined oak, cognac, dark cacao, mahogany, creme brulee, etc.
    Cranberries and figs are filled with high-quality chocolate that can be seen as changing from a velvety texture to a variety of shapes.
    Its fruitiness is fresh but dry and concentrated
    Katsuo soup and sharp soba soup
    Overflowing red grapes and old-fashioned sherry woody
    Generally the climate and sherry occupy the whole, but the back is brioche and fried bread crumbs secretly backed by wheat
    Naturally, the smoke of roasted coffee and smoked straw is maintained throughout, as if a thin film is formed on the whole.
    The lime, pink grapefruit, and melon blue and the citrus are pale and the presence of the nose is quiet, but it has a bewitching ant!
    Smoke iodine peachy shelly woodiness briny minerality fruity spicy bitter Everything that sinks into the body and stays longer (☜It seems to stay around the center of the lungs)
    The most richly flavored all scotch whiskies It is a name and answer as stated on the label!

    Old school Laphroaig, when the distillery was at its best.
    • Nose

      Intense smoke from embers with some honey
    • Taste
      92 92
      Sweet and tender. A combination of gun powder melted with sugar
    • Finish
      90 90
      Delicate and soft
