Whisky Reviews for Laphroaig 2006 TWC

4 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 86.38 points

  1. rottendon scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    So it's definitely interesting, but he does not really know what he wants to portray. So balance is certainly not his strength.

    Notes from a blind tasting.
    • Nose
      86 86
      Smokey quince bread with plum jam immediately after pouring. After a few minutes of dense, buttery sherry, a lot of smoke is not there, but he is clearly present. Acts somehow nice and dirty. Behind the whole is a clearly sour note, which actually reminds me of Bismarckhering. That with the acid was only a short approach, it has now almost completely given way to a rich and almost ordinary sherry profile. When heated, beautiful roasted aromas develop.
    • Taste
      87 87
      Sweet and initially quite mild start, but then comes after vigorously. Dark fir honey and a few herbs make a rendezvous, behind comes a lot of oak. In the second sip I now have wild berries, an interesting development.
    • Finish
      89 89
      In the finish, it dries significantly and here it shows for the first time, that has gotten quite a lot of smoke, because it leaves a long time a lot of ash on the tongue.

  3. Kantenmechaniker scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    The bubbly mouthfeel makes up for me a lot, the nose stands and falls with the outgassing of the alcohol, the finish is quite good. Unfortunately not what I had hoped for. Since I find all Brodirs better, from the Cairdeas 2013 I do not want to start ;-)
    • Nose
      At first very berry, fruity sweet, but also with a clear acidity, berry compote, first behind the smoke, which gives itself time but space, fresh and creamy, looks very wild and a little youthful, some wood, espresso, fresh wetted glass walls quite alcoholic, then need some time until you can sell properly again, after the first sip and without stirring up the nose is quite good
    • Taste
      strong smoke, again distinctly red berry, bringing with it sweetness, then it becomes sour, almost like soda, also in the mouth very boisterous and youthful, slightly oak, slightly woody, but not spicy or anything
    • Finish
      Here then quite pleasant with roasted nuts, of course, long-lasting smoke and above all is still this berry sweetness
