  1. DarrenHJA scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      85 85
      First impression, heavy medicine and charred peat. Raw fresh flame being burnt in front. Kelp, ginger, smoked ham, overcooked octopus. Full on 'in your face' expressions.
    • Taste
      87 87
      Smoke, peat, flambé chunk of meat on a charcoal grill. Slight hint of burn plastic.
    • Finish
      83 83
      Long finish of salt and smoke. Damp wood and earth like moisture.

  2. Kantenmechaniker scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    A typical and very neat Laphraoig, go a bit towards the 10yo CS bottlings without them being completely reached.
    • Nose
      Maritime smoke, salty, medicated, a breeze of cinnamon, vanilla, under the smoke quite creamy, smoked fish, some milk chocolate, lemon gum
    • Taste
      oily, directly solid sweet, vanilla, well integrated smoke, salt, smoked fish, maritime and vanilla are so the smoke additives, in the overall impression very consistent, reminds me a little of the 10yo CS bottlings, beautiful intensity here and hit with 50% a good strength
    • Finish
      behind the smoke pushes once again really, here again typical Laphroaig, medical, pleasant

  4. Dram Brigade scored this whisky 85 points Expert Junior

    • Nose
      85 85
      Seabreeze on the islay island, wet coal, rubberband, salted roast peanut, band aids, some sugar sweetness in the background. Sherry influence is minimal, or none?
    • Taste
      85 85
      Start with sweetness then quickly turn into high concentrate brine with tons of chopped chillies, char grill meat. This give the flavor profile of a spicy kimchi soup with overdose MSG.
    • Finish
      84 84
      Chilli and soy sauce, dry.. It’s like bak kut tea meat dip into chilli, garlic, and soy sauce.

    N- Always like a breezy Laphroaig, the opening of this DL comes with brines, soft resin, eucalyptus smokes and tea-ish with air-dried salted fish undertones. Faint rubber bands and gunpowder comes with plenty of strength at the back with wee dash of milkiness. Ticks on all boxes but appeared hollow at times, vigorous swirling does helps to awaken this slightly lazy 12YO. (87/21)

    P- Nicely brine-d, pre-seasoning seafod brouillon, zesty, bitter chocolate and pleasantly dry with full mouth coat. Well behave dried fruit letting the smokes to shines. (89/22)

    F- Long, playful prickly wood with rock salts, semi-chewy, puffy smokes with overdose chili powder and a taste of kimchi. (87/22)

    B/B- 87/22

    Cereal- 1, Fruity- 3, Floral- 1, Peaty- 3, Feinty- 1, Sulphury- 0, Woody- 2, Winery- 2, Spicy- 2

    Weighted Rate- 87pt

    • Nose
      86 86
      Extremely medicinal and smoky, seaweed, citrus fruits. Big and pungent, burnt wood, charcoal, smoked sausage and BBQ sauce. Not much sherry or wood influence, must be refillssss sherry butt.
    • Taste
      85 85
      Sweet arrival, with smokiness lingering. More BBQ sauce, mint sauce, and tobacco leaves
    • Finish
      86 86
      A medium long smoky finish, with no hints of bitterness. Slight nuttiness.
