Whisky Reviews for Laphroaig 1996 AW

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 89.27 points

  1. magic_slim scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    Wow, fabulous - I really love it. I tasted it before at the Aquavitae Whisky Festival in Essen and judged it only average for a Laphroaig. Now I like it much better. Maybe it needs more time, concentration and silence.
    • Nose
      Starts very delicate on vanilla peat, oysters and whiffs of smoke. Then some decent lemony notes are coming up. Also weak notes of Darjeeling tea. Totally nice and pleasant.
    • Taste
      Warming and elegant - salt, peat-smoke, camphor and pepper. Very mineralic and also lemony.
    • Finish
      Very long, clean and pleasant with the peat lingering on and on and on. This is so tasty !

  2. Roman scored this whisky 94 points Expert Senior

    Color: white wine

    Nose: Much iodine, smoke, hardly peat - fruit? I smell no fruit at all - later after 10 min some fruit due to the taste. Salt! Charcoal hits it very well !!!!
    Taste: Wow what is that, blackberry flavors in a Laphi paired with iodine, salt pure sea. Smoke and little peat. a bit peppery

    Departure: pure blackberry, to the said charcoal, now comes more pepper. In the beginning quite short the departure, but one thinks then comes right again.

    Conclusion: this Laphi can polarize - for me like a dream, very good stuff - a little more fruit and he would be high class
