  3. Vincent2 scored this whisky 92 points Expert Junior

    This bottle was rated only by Sherry&Smoke before it was sold on Whiskyauction last sunday 

    One week after it is now rated for 94 points by Amaryllis and at the same time appears in the marketplace sold by PAOK way above the selling price on whiskyauction

    Now check this : for all the bottles that are both rated by Amaryllis and sold by PAOK, Amaryllis' rate is above the average rating

    12 yo 1991/2004 (59.0%, Scotch Malt
    Whisky Society, N°.29.32, 'As
    good as it gets')

    As good as it gets? Let’s check
    whether that very bold statement is
    pure codswallop or not… Colour:
    full gold. Nose: all right! It’s
    like if this one was at least ten
    years older, as there are already
    these magnificent notes of fresh fruits
    (passion, tangerines) that one may
    find in much older expressions of
    Laphroaig. And kumquats, soot, coal,
    ripe gooseberries, smoked almonds,
    refined oysters (fines de claire),
    tincture of iodine… Epitomical,
    as they say. With water: wow, wow,
    wow! More of everything, including
    more elegance and a stunning leatheriness
    that’s only to be found in much
    older bottlings. A typo somewhere,
    for sure – stencilling of the
    casks, bond book, in the bottling
    hall, at the SMWS’ headquarters,
    whatever! Mouth (neat): extremely
    ‘full’ yet very wide,
    most certainly one the most medicinal
    of all medicinal Laphroaigs I’ve
    ever tasted. It’s hard to describe
    it as these medicinal things are usually
    not things that you may swallow, but
    I’d say that we have quite some
    antiseptic, bandages (gulp!), mint
    and eucalyptus-based balms, camphor…
    And mercurochrome. Enough to cure
    many illnesses. With water: massive!
    Finish: long, full, more Laphroaig
    than the most Laphroaig of all official
    Laphroaigs. Comments: of very, very,
    very high quality. Like we sometimes
    say, this is why we’re into
    whisky (but they should really check
    this typo problem at the SMWS! ;-))
    SGP:558 - 93 points.
