  1. mothers_finest scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    I would not have guessed port and red wine barrels blindly. Okay, it has a subliminal acidity, the malt is not bad either, but it is not particularly complex - a vatting made from 3 types of cask - after all. In the mouth it looks quite young and metallic. I would always prefer a 10CS.

      Fruity and sweet smoke.
      Wood and wine.
      The typical Laphroaig note of iodine.

      With a few drops of water, the smell becomes softer and even sweeter.
    • Taste
      87 87
      Salty start.
      Wine gums and red berries.
      Swelling fire.

      The taste becomes rougher with water
    • Finish
      86 86
      Ashy, sooty.
      Salt stays on the tongue.
      The wine note remains present.

    Lots of Laphi, nice sweetness, positive that the wine and port do not stand out, but only bring in a slight fruitiness. In addition, the malt is very tasty. Fine.

    • Nose

      Young smoke but very subdued.
    • Taste
      85 85
      Salty, red fruits with acidity, with typical Laphi rough and unpolished
    • Finish
      83 83
      Not very spectacular, youth, wood
