el Gato gave this whisky 91 points
Color
Old gold
Nose

A bit of minerals. Gentle peat. Waxy. Salt. Fresh anf fruity. Spicy. Menthol. Herbs. Hay. Raspberries. Fudge. 

Taste

More chemical. Tropical. Still fresh and fruity. Liquerice. More and more peat for every sip. Citrus and peppery. Menthol

Finish

Pretty long. Pepper and citrus lingers. Then it turns a bit. Raspberry candy. Burnt rubber and more ashy.

Comments

Splendid nose. Brora style. But body changed a bit. More tropical, and no wax for me. Finish made it drop down to 91. But all in, my my, I loved it

Serge:

Laphroaig 21 yo 1989/2010 (53.1%, The Perfect Dram, bourbon hogshead, 197 bottles) Five stars Colour: gold. Nose: yeah! A rather expressive, superbly grassy and maybe more complex than usual Laphroaig, with more herbal notes than usual. I get olive oil, brine and even and capers at first nosing, just before it all gets more ‘traditional’, with some moderate medicinal and coastal notes and quite some hot ashes (charcoal, BBQ). Quite some apple peelings. Marzipan. Globally rather different from other Laphroaigs. Also hints of manure. With water:  it’s the mint that comes to the front, together with some unexpected notes of Demerara sugar. Bacon. Fab. Mouth (neat): perfect, just perfect. Very punchy, superbly citrusy and herbal, tarry, very smoky, briney, almondy… Great Laphroaig when undiluted, simply very classy, everything the name Laphroaig should stand for. I love the notes of salted tangerines (have to try that!) With water: more of the same. And salted cough syrup? Finish: very long, peppery, peaty, herbal. Comments: great. It hasn’t got too much of the fruitiness of some older Laphroaigs, which makes it maybe a little austere, but it is a great one. Only the finish is a tad less exciting. SGP:268 - 92 points.

Nose

süß, torfig, fruchtig, Iod

Taste

sehr harmonisch aber auch stark und etwas wuchtig, schön torfig, die Süße paart sich mit Salz - gesalzener Kuchen, die Frucht ist weg

Finish

süß und mittellang

Comments

schöner Laphi, sehr lecker aber unspektakulär, habe etwas mehr erwartet
