  2. goran did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    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.

  3. Rom did not rate this whisky Expert Junior

    Nose well peaty, cold ashes, vanilla. Balanced sweet and vanilla mouth, medicinal peat. Long final. A good Laphroaig.

  4. Ivynor scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    Very good laphroaig. Classic, bold and powerful
    • Nose
      Bourbon profile: wood, vanilla, before the smoke comes. It's very simple but very expressive and the alcohol is well integrated.
    • Taste
      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.
    • Finish
      Very long, on smoke, earth (eat earth!), Wood, iodine and citrus fruits.

  5. Ras Mazunga scored this whisky 91 points Super Administrator

    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.
