  1. Fudschafudscha scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    very nice Laphroaig, but I dunno how s.o. rating this in die low 90Ps.

    Compared to its successor from 2020, it is way better.
    But the 2020 10 CS is not really that good and to me, far away from 89P. So this on is for me a close to 90P, but for the actual price of around 350 Euros, I would definitely go for an other bottle of UA Laphroaig like a 1997 SV

    Color: mahogany, copper highlights

    Nose: between smoky charcoal peat and smoked bacon. Nut, leather, pepper, a woody influence,

    Palate: sawdust, charcoal, spicy on pepper.

    Finish: long on smoke

    Comments: well integrated alcohol for the top tav. Lacks a bit of complexity to spend 90 in my opinion.

    The balance between the different nuances make this whisky.

      Peppery with a little salt. The smoke is perfectly integrated and accompanied by a bit of peat and medical notes.

      From nose to finish, whisky gets better and better. Really successful!

    • Nose
      Strong medicated-smoky. Little banana and other bright fruits. Little vanilla and caramel. Some menthol. A few drops of water make it rounder, the menthol disappears, the fruit is better through. A slight sweetness begins.
    • Taste
      Amazingly enjoyable at the start. Slightly oily, then ash covers the mouth. The few drops of water promote the oily character, the smoke is set, overall it looks more mature and less ashen.
    • Finish
      The oily body can hold itself. Still clearly smoky. The barrel is difficult, at most light vanilla.
