Whisky Reviews for Laphroaig 1997 MM
4 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 85.20 points
- The aroma is slightly wine: berries, berry jam, confectionery notes (marmalade, soybean bar), herbs, flowers, organic (silage, sweet foliage), smoke, tonality (salt, stones, coal). Not bad. The taste is slightly sweet, winey: a little smoke, hot pepper, salt, vanilla, burnt cake with raisins, berries, jam, peat, wood, light bitterness. The aftertaste is quite simple: at first sharp spices, slightly astringent oak with bitter taste, salt, peat, fruit and berry sweetness, burnt pastries. In development dry, smoky: coal, peat, mineral content. Conclusion . Wine finish. I can not say that I liked it. Interesting aroma. A sharp, winey taste. In general, it is normal. Rating: 83 (n22t20f20b21).
- It is a bottle that is out of the ordinary Laphroaig, it is interesting to see how finishing in a barrel of red wine can cure and change its iodine-like character to peppery acidity.
This place did not fit me much, but it seems to me that the great thing in Laphroaig suppressed, but it's probably my impression, the other members of the Peat Brotherhood rated better and here on WhiskyBase I most strictly evaluate, of seven people, so my 83/100 berte with reserve, you can best do it when you taste yourself and make your own opinion, which is always true.
Peat with smoke, then cherry, or perhaps cherry compote, jam. With water, acidity rises.
The taste is again peat, then a pile of fruit, a wine barrel.
In the flavor, this Laphroaig is a bit of pepper, definitely not working as well as Laphroaig's Ob.
- Delicious, smooth Laphroaig, oilyish, not realy sweet, lightly peated, dark chocolate and with a pepperish and fairly long finish!
