Whisky Reviews for Laphroaig 2009 SMWS 29.244

4 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 88.13 points

  1. grinface scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    I don't know if I could really express my enthusiasm with my notes (Full review (german): https://keinehalbendrinks.de/2020/11/03/laphroaig-der-juengere/). For me he is fantastically clean and young. This is how it should be with an eight year old malt. I can’t ask for better!

    Whilst wandering the grounds in preparation for the masterclasses, we get offered a Laphroaig offering from an SMWS representative in matching red shoes. With life constraints, I noted:

    N: Salty & sweaty fresh pine wood nose,…
    T: ,… with a buttery oily vegetal briny palate mouthfeel.
    F: Bitter-ish cask-influenced vegetal action, bonfire ash [more with water], and a touch bitter, chocolate vanilla choc ice to finish.
    C: Pretty fine juice with youthful form from a very good cask, exclusively bottled by the SMWS for the Islay Feis Ile 2018.

    [Provisionally scores 85 points]
