  1. marmeladow scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    Tasting a bottle that has been open for 2 years and was still 75% full. Extremely tasty: pleasant Laphroaig smoke, paired with a creamy mouthfeel and mild vanilla sweetness. Surprisingly well maintained over the years. Seems better to me than the later bottlings that I had in the glass ..

  2. oldking scored this whisky 79 points Newbie

    Quite a surprise, light peat, not as pronounced peat as Calrella 12, very light peat smell. But it's sweet. There is a little bitterness in the back part, the overall is very stable, and the ice is also good and cost-effective.

  3. KB201 did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Ian Hunter, the last of the founding family, visited Kentucky bourbon distilleries some 70 years ago to learn their aging techniques. Up until this point, all casks had come from Europe, resulting in a significantly sweeter Laphroaig. Hunter had a selection of ex-bourbon casks shipped to Scotland to test the casks on his whisky. This is the beginning of Laphroaig as we know it.

    Weak smoky, pleasant smell - with a spicy long finish. Top price / performance
