Whisky Reviews for Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky 2012 Sb

11 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 87.27 points

  1. Julia E S scored this whisky 89 points Expert Junior

    Very strong young Islay whisky. According to the picture it should be a Laphroaig. But hardly has the classic medicinal, phenolic aromas for this. Would have guessed a Caol Ila blindly from the flavors. Although I would have missed out on the maritime components. In general, the smoke dominates here very clearly, which goes in the direction of warm coal fire and tar. Very dry, which in turn goes well with Laphroaig. Personally, I like that very much, although the price is a bit too high. 50 to 60 euros would have been appropriate.

    PS: You shouldn't expect complexity monsters here, but this whisky is definitely a real peat bomb!

    Strong and powerful straight peated whisky. Not very surprising, but just very good.

      Strong peatsmoke, rubber, some pretty strong alcohol. Then a lot of fruitiness comes in. Citrus, orange. Sweetness, vanilla. Then more vegetal.

      Pretty strong and powerful, licorice, some caramel en sweet smoke. A bit of chocolate.

      Still pretty powerful, sweet smoke, milk chocolate, middle long.

    Very nice aroma. Even if equal to the 10th barrel. If the aroma wins a little, the taste is at the level of plus or minus, but the aftertaste is a little disappointing, some extra bitterness, burning. In general, for some reason a little simplistic.

    Quit a nice whisky but young, you can notice it by the missing layers in taste and body. I like it yeah, would I buy it for 79 euro or more, no.
