  1. didi1893 scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    The first impression is influenced by the well-known Laphroaigaromen, gradually the volume and the smoky wood tones decrease, dominate it sweet fruit flavors. The overall impression is creamy and oily, easy drinking and extremely mild for a Laphroaig, he seems in the second half a little powerless and boring. I personally love the interplay of fruit or sweetness and the smoky peat and wood elements. I still like it!

    • Nose
      Old pink with an orange shimmer shines the Laphroaig in the glass, on the glass wall oily "legs" pull their fast tracks back into the glass. Powerful, sweet peat and a hint of smoke rise from the premium snifter, maritime and phenolic iodine and algae to the fore. The typical Laphroaigaromen such as iodine, algae, peat and smoke are joined by creamy caramel and fruity strawberries, malty add a pinch of salt and apricots. Burnt wood tones and mineral peat are minimal, and again and again this beguiling fruity note comes to the fore. I love the interplay of slightly smoky peat and sweet creamy fruit elements.
    • Taste
      The first sip is dominated by the smoky peat and burned wood. Iodine and salt are added, subtle sharpness fills the entire mouth while creamy sweetness stimulates the saliva. Fly ash and burning campfire, creamy malt sweet and fruity strawberries, morello cherries and apricots, honey, a pinch of fresh mint, just before the end, old walnuts are still showing. A hint of citrus fruits flashes ...
    • Finish
      Creamy and mild rest the mild fruit flavors on the palate, from the initial smoky notes, almost nothing is available. Appearances of earthy peat, otherwise dominate only creamy fruit flavors with a hint of peat the finish. Citrus fruits and a light note of mint then let the aftertaste slowly fade away.

    Good, but the wine influence is a little bit off, like Laphroaig and a fruit syrup have been mixed together in my glass.
    • Nose
      86 86
      Salty smoke, nutty, medicinal, sweet with blueberries and blackberries, a citrus like sourness, lapsang souchong tea and some dusty woodspices.
    • Taste
      84 84
      Smoke of burnt twigs, an oily sweetness, sour and sweet fruits, fruit syrup, mostly cherries and blackberries, a little bit peppery.
    • Finish
      86 86
      Long, somewhat ashy, but also sweet with liquorice, dark red fruit juice and a little vanilla.

    • Nose
      82 82
      The smoke is somewhat sweet, and the nose carries hints of berries. Overall a little "rough" on the nose.
    • Taste
      84 84
      Easy smoke, with notes of berries and a little vanilla.
    • Finish
      86 86
      Semi-long finish where the berries, fruit and vanilla comes through nicely. Slight hints of chocolate.

  10. Punktar scored this whisky 80 points Connoisseur

    The is consistently good, but not as outstanding as the price and the expectation of the port wine barrel hoped.
    • Nose
      Quite neat smoke, but unlike the 10 here rather direction wood smoke. With a little patience something about dark fruits in the background.
    • Taste
      First maritime / salty notes. Then only the smoke. Licorice. Creamy on the tongue. Even more licorice. Very slightly metallic. Far in the background dark fruits and a little lemon flavor. I had expected something more from the port wine barrel.
    • Finish
      Very long and warm.
