  1. Malzbrenner scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    A lapgroaig from the port barrel, unfortunately without age, but with an appealing color. And it meets all expectations!
    • Nose
      87 87
      Slightly maritime smoke, red fruits, forest honey and herbs. Some vanilla and black currants. Very pleasing.
    • Taste
      88 88
      Subtly smoky, red berries, heather honey. The herbs are woven in very well and the alcohol is not stinging despite its 48% vol. Eucalyptus and licorice.
    • Finish
      87 87
      Medium length finish with pleasant herbal honey on the palate. Soft and warm.

  2. Krisladdich scored this whisky 86 points Expert Junior

    A nice Laphroaig with a great nose. Unfortunately, taste and finish can not quite keep the "promise" and fall off a bit. Still a great malt for rainy days, but nothing to spend hours with.
    • Nose
      88 88
      Fruity sweet, dried plums, red grapes at first. Only then comes the Laphroaig smoke. Typically phenolic, but very restrained beautifully integrated and in beautiful interaction with the sweet fruits. Then some strong honey and very fine Bourbon vanilla. Then a light spice, almost kräutrig. With a little time, the classic maritime salt and algae notes are added. But not exuberant but very mild. Mild is also the alcohol, the 48% are barely noticeable in the nose, but still give enough strength. A nice straight-lined nose. Not super complex, but just nice to sniff.
    • Taste
      85 85
      In the beginning then directly the phenol smoke, lies down gently on the palate and surrounds the sweet fruits. The sweetness is almost a bit jammy. The cheeks become moist, while the tongue and the neck area become drier. Some salt and colorful pepper in the mouth. Very spicy, no trace of vanilla and honey. Tasty, but the nose makes me more fun.
    • Finish
      85 85
      The Brodir is indeed quite a long time, but mainly because of the mouthfeel. It remains almost only a little spice and the smoke. At first a bit fruity and sweet, but it wears off very quickly. Again, I would have liked something more. Still not bad.

    It is very pleasantly smoky. In connection with its spiciness really nice in the mouth. Unfortunately, I don't like the salty in the whisky and the medical smoke outlet so much. Still has a good balance in general. Overall worth buying and really good!

    • Taste
      85 85

    • Finish
      84 84
      Liquorice, lots of smoke (partly medicinal), salty, slightly peppery, slightly bitter (malt), woody

    • Nose
      89 89
      Typical Laphroaig smoke, becoming very mild and sweeter. Dark fruits (berries) from the Ruby port are presented in the background. When the smoke is gone, peaty notes of old seaweed (musty) become noticeable.
    • Taste
      91 91
      A powerful start with a sparkling European oak barrel flavor on the tongue, plus smoke and ash. Only later, some sweetness and fruit from dark berries are added.
    • Finish
      90 90
      Persistent smoky with spice and a little sweetness. Finally, the smoke pulls the throat up again.

    nice but not great, bought it for 60 euro and still feel it's a bit to much for a port finished Nas.
