- From Whiskyfun:
Laphroaig 1996/2010 (57.6%, Malts of Scotland, bourbon hogshead, cask #7307, 273 bottles) Colour: pale white wine. Nose: this one is very austere, flinty and sooty. Behind, some lemon and candied citrons and a little bacon and mint. Mouth: excellent, full, nervous yet rich and creamy, with this perfect combination of peat and lemon marmalade and just touches of salt, maple syrup and vanilla. Finish: long, rich, with an aftertaste on lapsang souchong tea. Comments: very nice nose and brilliant palate here. Maybe the hoggie was recharred? SGP:548 - 90 points.
- Nose well peaty, cold ashes, vanilla. Balanced sweet and vanilla mouth, medicinal peat. Long final. A good Laphroaig.
- Very good laphroaig. Classic, bold and powerful
Bourbon profile: wood, vanilla, before the smoke comes. It's very simple but very expressive and the alcohol is well integrated.
Sweet, very fat (I love it), the texture is thick, with notes of wood, cream, peat, vanilla, marine (iodine, oily fish), orange zest, medicinal plants.
Very long, on smoke, earth (eat earth!), Wood, iodine and citrus fruits.
- Sofar I only tasted a little from a 5cl samples bottle but already agree with Mose it's worth 91 pnts.
Lots of bananas in this Froig, just like the first Duncan Taylor Laphroaig a few months ago. This one is just a little milder.
