  1. Helgo scored this whisky 80 points Connoisseur

    Drunk at Motel One. Always a pleasure and a standard that I like to try when there is this or the Ardbeg 10 at the hotel bar.

  6. troyk890 scored this whisky 93 points Expert Junior

    Incredibly fruity(tropical fruit) and rich. With a more complex, herbal peat than the modern stuff.

    Tried side by side next to the current Laga 16 release and the difference was night and day.

    It seems a few people on this page have left ratings for the current version. This is the page for a 100cl bottling from the 80s.
