  1. Slàinte Mhath scored this whisky 83 points Super Administrator

    Quick hit review.

    I caught an ugly cold, so I asked peatbogger for a Laphroaig, not knowing that COVID-19 was approaching like a steamroller. On the nose, vegetal peat smoke, sea salt and honey mix with fennel, lime and fresh ginger. A promising start. Then I was hit hard by a cold, brimful ashtray, coughing in disgust. Dry, medicinal and brutal, the taste marched on the virus in a vengeance. Earthy notes, lemon zest and soot were the only survivors in the long finish. Not sure what did more damage, this dram or SARS-CoV-2?

    Too extreme for many but for us adventurist types it hits the spot on so many levels.

      Fresh sea air, those long see through rubber rain mack's. A bit like the one John Cleese wears in the Parrot Sketch. That has to be one of my weirdest notes so far. Plenty of iodine poured on a stone. Yeah definitely stoney. There is also some fruit but I can't quite put my finger on it, melon maybe. There is also something there that I've never noticed in a peated whisky before but I don't know what it is. Great though.

      Wow! First sip is like chewing on a burning log. This is quite potent but not unpleasant at all without water. Very palatable in fact. Again there is that stoney mouthfeel and earthiness. There is dryness but it's good, it fits the bill. Also get lemon tonic water. This is extreme stuff even for peatheads but i love it.

      The finish is long and Smokey with a citrus bite and sea salt on the death.

    Sweet Lord of Uisgebea what dangers this bottle beholds.
    It's 63,4% ABV and I found it to go down like milk.
    If I should compair it to anything it would have to be the old 18YO OB, and I rate it 3 points higher.
    Enjoy resposably, this will hit you like a brick.

      The high alc is very well integrated. At 63,4% you kind of expect nose hair to start growing inwards, but this is OK to sniff out.
      To be a young Laff'er this is a bit mellow and almost subdued.
      Don't misunderstand, everything Laphroaig is lurking in the glass, it just smell weaker and older than what is stated.

      Extremely rounded, this goes down neat like a charm.
      Dark, rich, full bodied.
      More thick black smoke than peat, and there's very little of the seashore, briny, salty notes. Can't find much iodine/medicinal notes neither.
      But there's rubber, charred wood and burnt coffee beans.
    • Finish

      If it hadn't said Hogshead on the label I could have sworn this had matured in a sherry cask.
      Long finish, with rich dark flavours. As they fade it leaves a mellow sweet peat that seem to stick forever.
      The empty glass actually smell of wet cow.
