Whisky Reviews for Laphroaig 2012 DL

    Nose: Sweet, medical smoke immediately emanates from the glass. You do not even have to get close to the glass to perceive the intense notes. With a little less distance, the strong alcohol stings something in the nose first. If you give the malt but 10-15 minutes in the glass, flies the initial sharpness in the nose and continue flavors are revealed. In addition to the smoke, there is also a distinct hint of vanilla, malt, caramel, a wet dew, gauze bandages, some citrus fruit and removed delicate red fruit. Most likely towards raspberry.

    Taste: Also on the tongue, the malt is intense sweet and smoky without end. The oily texture surprises me positively after only seven years. I find custard, ginger, cereal, old gymnastics mat and the typical Laphroaig iodine influence. The alcohol is really well integrated for 60%.

    Finish: medium to long with cereal, vanilla and a few very fitting metallic notes for me. The smoke reverberates for a long time.
