    [May, 2004]  Together with friends I emptied bottle no. 274 that I bought for 56 Euro in April, 2004.

    In my old rating system (ten scales that translate into WB points: 50 - 66 - 75 - 80 - 82,5 - 85 - 87,5 - 90 - 92,5 - 95) I scored this 90.  My notes state a typical end-of-eighties Laphroaig profile and a dangerously quaffable dram.  This bottle was gone in one go...

  3. Erik Elixir did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    My guess Laphroaig because of the cask number

  4. art-bett scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    COLOR: bright gold NOSE: smokehouse / ham, leather fat, shoe polish, medicine case, gauze bandage, herbal notes. "IIIhhhh git iiihhh git." the comment of my husband. : D TASTE: previously gained impressions come back almost all, but also a nice sweetness (vanilla / honey) and a little acid (not unpleasant) I'm tasting. There is also some salt. Departure: medium to long with smoky sweetness on the palate. CONCLUSION: Delicious Laphi. : top: Do not know if Lombard`s still bottled. Let alone buys or whatever ?? Would be a pity.
