    Said stinky. . . A few Lafergs compare to drink 10yo's dog hair smell is the heaviest. . .

    From a fresh bottle just opened today, quality/price ratio is hard to beat, really good.

  3. Igor_Gudimov scored this whisky 86 points Expert Junior

    Laphroaig with more prominent iodine and fishy flavor but thin body
    • Nose
      Iodine, salt breeze, and minerality (fishy like), a touch of ashy smoke, slight butterscotch under this (resembles yeasty bread for me)
    • Taste
      Sweet butterscotch, bready peat, salty, iodine
    • Finish
      Long, bready peat

    Looked forward to this one. Had it on my list for quite a while now. I must admit, my expectations were high. So were my expectations of the Star Wars sequels, but they disappointed beyond comprehension. This liquid art piece did not! Oh my goodness! What a great whisky.
    • Nose
      The balanced peated smell, combined with a salty scent (is that even possible?) that did justice to the sweetness of the honey and butterscotch popcorn that made me wonder if they captured the parfume of heaven and put it in a bottle?
    • Taste
      Hello darkness my old friend! What a delight on the plate! I had a nostalgic feeling of the days I could sit at the bar after playing a football match in the poring rain sipping on some comforting beverage. Yes, the smoke, the mango, the honey, the goodness of all things were found in the gold liquid in my glass, waiting to be swallowed as it was the last thing I would taste. This is beyond a delight, this is legen- wait for it - dary, LEGENDARY!
    • Finish
      How could I descripe this? Is there a vocabulary to describe something that comes closer to perfection that I will ever understand? No, the answer is no. This is. Bottle that I will have to have on my shelf all the time.

    In my opinion a weak bottling.
    I would like to see this bottled at 48 %, just as the Quarter Cask and the Triple Wood.
    Adding water does open it up a bit, but it feels it could be so much more at higher strength.
    Other issues to me are the added colourant and, as I suppose by the mouthfeel, a rather heavy filtration.

  7. djmaxliving scored this whisky 84 points Expert Junior

    I prefer this to its rival the Ardbeg 10, with this offering a more rounded and sweeter whisky in comparison. Has everything I look for in an Islay but not quite beating Lagavulin.

      85 85
      Straight off the nose a big hit of gentle intense peat, sweet peas flowers, cough sweets - no brands mentioned, as I ain't getting paid ;) Some nice complexity for a standard available core-range bottle, a peat lover daily dream?
    • Taste
      86 86
      Little thin at the beginning, peat smoke, slightly burnt toast, sage, catmint, oakwood bitter, lime, salad burnet, sweetness infused with the peat.
    • Finish
      82 82
      Short to medium finish, woody and peat. Gently slips into the background sadly.
