Whisky Reviews for Laphroaig Càirdeas

12 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 88.40 points

  1. Archer scored this whisky 91 points Connoisseur

    Successful balance of smoke and fruit, round and balanced. A Cairdeas, no matter what vintage, you should actually always have in the house ...
    • Nose
      The smell of cloves of spiked apple slices wrapped in fresh peat smoke rises from the glass. Iodised sea air passes through and expels the smoke clouds of the peat fire. The apple notes are fresh and juicy.
    • Taste
      The nose continues on the tongue. Strongly salty and with neat seaweed and algae aroma, the Cairdeas spreads on the tongue. Again, the refreshing apple notes. In addition, roasted bacon, tobacco, leather and oak.
    • Finish
      Long, dry, smoky, smoldering peat soil, nice and warm.

  2. markjedi1 scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    Delicious Laffie without question. Pity that it has become all but extinct (and if you do find it, be prepared to fork over 250 to 500 EUR). 
    • Nose
      The nose screams ‘Laffie’ with its medicinal notes, ubiquitous citrus and lovely smokiness. There is some sweetness in there from vanilla and hazel nuts, saltiness from sea salt and even a hint of wood glue. Some leather and dark chocolate. It had me at the first whiff.
    • Taste
      Oily body and immediately piquant on pepper, salt, citrus and… err… smoke chicken with a layer of honey. Wait. What? Yup, it’s true. The citrus does take the lead quickly. Rather zesty too. Fruity on pineapple and apples. Vanilla becomes big and tries to counter the peat, but to no avail. But scary good.
    • Finish
      The finish is very long on ashes and citrus, loads of citrus with a peppery death.

  3. Allandale scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    Just very good
    • Nose
      Vanilla,iodine,seaweed,fresh hazelnuts, smoke tones. Added water: more seatones and hessian.
    • Taste
      Zesty smoky lemony,with oily mouthfeel ,smoked grapefruits added water : crystal clean, excellent. 
    • Finish
      Long, clean,very smoky,ashy, salty. Very peppery aftertaste.

  5. Falnor scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Very nice Laphroaig. Big peated example and a thick  salty oily one, with enough sweetness for a tiny counterbalance.

    Price at the festival is very decent, but the price you pay on auctions is just crazy.

  7. Willie JJ scored this whisky 92 points Expert Senior

    Stunningly good whisky
    • Nose
      Iodine soaked lint, bound up in a parcel by tarry rope. seaweed and vanilla essence, crab shells and paprika ketchup. Standing on the beach after the storm with coal smoke from nearby chimneys. Fantastic!
    • Taste
      The coal smoke and vanilla sweetness are locked in a struggle that sees each take turns at supremacy. Mmmm
    • Finish
      Melts into peat fire. Long, warming and delicious.

  8. TheMue scored this whisky 90 points Member Junior

    With some drops of water the nose tends to raisins and flowers. The taste moves to hazelnuts and salt and the finish is still long and wonderful warm.
    • Nose
      Fresh notes of salt, nuts and sweet berries, a little whiff of glue (not too much). 
    • Taste
      Strong notes of wood, together with dark chocolate. Also some salt and smoke.
    • Finish
      Very long and warm, every time a good feeling.

  9. alectron scored this whisky 85 points Specialist

    • Nose
      (sweet) wood smoke, caramel/butter-fudge, some vanilla, some peat, slight leather & tobacco, chalky, lamb leather, somewhat artificial sweetness too, clay, peas, also some wood chips (85)
    • Taste
      smoky & sweet, mineral, buttery/oily, pineapple ester, (86)
    • Finish
      alcohol comes through towards the finish, still very sweet with a few tea notes & smokey,  long but slightly one dimensional, turning more mineral at the end again. (85)

  10. Dede scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    This one reminded me of an 18yo CS version. It's good, well done, but I prefer the young Càirdeas 2009, not to mention a good old 10yo CS red stripe.
    • Nose
      A bit alcoholic at first. The aromas detected are typically Laphroaig: medicinal peat, ripe overripe banana, marine notes. The balance between them is less. Indeed, the peat, although plentiful and fat, passes behind the banana notes. Aeration makes it less aggressive. Citrus with a little water.
    • Taste
      Alcohol is well integrated. Once again we are well at Laphroaig, with this mix of peat power and sweetness on banana, grenadine, plus a nice citrus acidity, and some more bitter notes of licorice and gentian. The peat is fat, just like the texture that soils the palate. Best with a little water.
    • Finish
      Peaty, it oscillates between the acidity of lemon and the bitterness of licorice.
