Whisky reviews for Williamson 2005 DR

One user has left a review for this whisky. Average rating is 87.38 points.

  1. Archer scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    Looks unembellished and without make-up, which makes him (me) very likeable. A nice example of how Laphroaig seems to be best kept in an ex-Bourbon barrel.
    • Nose
      88 88
      Ashy peat smoke, smoked lemon peel, salt, seaweed, a freshly paved road, vanilla - and always a fresh Atlantic breeze that blows against you here. Very tasty and inviting.
    • Taste
      88 88
      Quite powerful acceleration, also and especially compared to Batch 015 of the 10 CS, which I had in the glass shortly before and which has a few more revs. The full program of a Laphroaig from the bourbon barrel: honey sweetness, vanilla crescents, smoked ham, peat smoke, dried seaweed, sea spray, unventilated hospital corridor (emergency room). Goes quite forward, I wouldn't have expected it at 14 years old. But why not.
    • Finish
      87 87
      Medium to long, intensifying peat smoke, vanilla and honey, ship's diesel, warm machine oil, tart herbal mixture.
