Whisky Reviews for Laphroaig 2005 DT

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 88.90 points

  1. Totoro scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Unexpectedly, the sherry influence is more modest than the mention of "octave" as cask type would have you believe. Great nose.

      Uncompromising, carbolic, phenolic, ashy, grimy, salty, exhaust-pipe-smoky Laphi goodness.
    • Taste
      86 86
      A rubbery touch, and more heat than you'd ideally like.
