Whisky Reviews for Laphroaig 1989 SMWS 29.83

3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 87.05 points

  1. ARDBERG did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    SMWS note:
    Our noses were dazzled and bacon-frazzled. By seaweed (cut and dried). Coal in a casket, a new-made basket. With orange and bread inside; A doctor’s bag; a fire-cooked prawn. And grilled black pudding (with sugar on!) “Oh wow! What a nose” we cried. The taste was fierce with embers and ash. Hawaiian pork, cooked in a pit; Our tongues were roasted, twisted and lashed. By the peppery, liquorice hit. A honey sweet, marshmallow treat. And egg custard were pleasing to some. But someone said “Ooooh! Incinerated shoe”; While another kissed a Balrog’s bum*. And ran, whimpering, home to his mum.

    *(Balrog – a fiery demon from Lord of the Rings)

    Very tasty ... Why does not Laphroaig even bring out (affordable) sherry keg-matured whisky?!?
    • Nose
      Smoke, sherry sauce, make-up, lightly alcoholic, light phenolic, maritime notes, bacon, engine oil.
      With H2O vanilla, campfire smoke, oak, rubber, some cowshed
    • Taste
      Smoky, ash, sweet dark fruit, balanced but strong
    • Finish
      Campfire smoke, creamy and mouth-watering sweetness
