  2. Jack Hinks scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    This dram definitely needs some time to open up and will get more complex over time. Nothing for a quick dram in between. I imagine a winter evening at the fireplace, and this dram will help you dream of summer.

      pineapple, bacon, smoke, grapes, golden syrup, clam shells, reminds me of a bbq at the beach.
    • Taste
      86 86
      Starts off a little subtle, dry notes, chalk powder, sweet grilled pineapple, intense peat smoke, white pepper
    • Finish
      86 86
      Long, dry and a wee bit spicy.

  7. Tommyknocker scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    Incredibly balanced bottling between full, medicinally smoky typical Laphroaig character and sweet fruity rum cask impact. Perfect balance, perfect filling time!

  9. Tom na Gruagaich scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    Good Laphroaig, but I lack both some bite and the elegance to replace it.
    • Nose
      sweet, peaty, fat, vanilla, caramel, allspice, clove, spicy sweet, clear smoke, but not extreme, rather set for Laphroaig.
    • Taste
      stronger, more herbaceous, more Laphroaig, still rather sweet, but slightly dry peat smoke.
    • Finish
      Salty, peaty and a subtle sweetness.

  10. gossm01 scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    It has a relatively oily viscosity and its bouquet is of relatively strong intensity. I have aromas of dry peat smoke, honey sweetness, caramel, vanilla, light acidity, salt, ripe banana and ash. Relatively complex. A good balance between sweetness and dryness in terms of taste. He has clearly noticeable alcohol and a relatively heavy body.

  12. Pharma98 scored this whisky 92 points Expert Junior

    A wonderful Laphroaig - just as it should be! Strong peat and herb notes, a bit of sweetness and exotic from Rum Cask and all of this without covering up the typical Laphroa aromas such as iodine and “hospital wastewater”. For lovers of the still - a dream!
    Tasting notes:
    Nosing: peat smoke, fruity, quince, herbal notes, maritime, tobacco, cedarwood, orange notes,
    Tasting: Salty, nice peaty, maritime, pleasant fruity aromas, nutty, forest honey, citrus & oranges
    Finish: long-lasting, ashy, sweet, somewhat smoky
