Le nez est assez peu expressif, végétal avec un peu de charbon.

L’attaque est sucrée, la texture épaisse, grasse, sur une belle tourbe médicinale. Cette très bonne bouche, inattendue, contraste sérieusement avec le nez.

Longue finale sur la cendre et le charbon.Bon whisky, dommage que le nez ne soit pas au rendez-vous.

A well-balanced, slightly sherried Laphroaig. Give it a bit of time in your Glencairn glass, and you will be rewarded... some fruits start to come out. And with water, it becomes even more "smooth". Not sure how much this was when it came out, but it must have been quite a bargain!

From Whiskyfun:

Laphroaig 11 yo 1999/2010 (59.5%, The Nectar of the Daily Drams, sherry) Five stars Colour: straw. Nose: more cask influence in this one, a little more vanilla but also more damp earth and antiseptic, flints (tons of wet rocks) and lime. More ‘excessive’ than the 1998 in a certain way but of similar quality. Also a lot of sea air. With water: woo-hoo! This one swims! Huge notes of sea water and metal (old car engine.) It’s quite spectacular and unusual, which is great as there are so many excellent young Laphroaigs in the market. Mouth (neat): same as the 1998 now, but it’s true that it’s hard to pick out nuances at such high strength. Quick, water... With water: oh yes. Once again, it’s got something extra. Something slightly roasted and tarry, earthy as well… And there are various citrus fruits, tangerines, bitter oranges… Finish: very long, very clean but complex. Smoked almonds? Comments: such a fabulous young Laphroaig that’s already complex and ‘wide’ deserves some extra-points. We’re close to the old official 10s ‘CS’ here. A little more tropical fruits and we would be there. But warning, proper water is obligatory. SGP:458 - 92 points.

Huileux, lourd (huile moteur). Ca pique un peu les narines. Rien de très précis pour commencer à part de la fumée aiguisée comme une lame de rasoir, qui vous pourfend les narines... Puis du cuir, du toffee,. La bouche est à l'image du nez, lourde et huileuse, la douceur sucrée en plus. Elle se développe cependant avec grâce, toute en rondeur, non sans une certaine légèreté. Assez simple et direct, un peu trop sucré aussi, après le SMWS 29.105, qui l'écrase littéralement... Peut-être pâtit-il de la comparaison avec son prédécesseur, ou peut-être le sample était-il éventé, mais il est un peu trop simple et doux à mon goût.

Colour: Bright gold Nose: Strong, even stronger with a little water. Beachside camp fire, liquorice, cloves, a hint of honey and mixed fruit, slightly medicinal. Palate: Strong peat, grapes, dried banana, hints of liquorice, ginger and cloves. Finish: Long, smokey and slightly fruity. Overall: The sherry cask adds a slight fruitiness to this Laphroaig that is in perfect balance with the trademark medicinal peat. Very delicious!

A weird nose. Peat of course, that's the expected part. But also 'green' notes like dandelion 'juice', nettle and olive oil. A stable scent, including the cow shit.... next to a beer brewery. Sounds delicious, doesn't it? Furthermore leather, pipe tobacco, liquorice and malt. In the background a bitter fruitiness like grapefruit or blood orange, but even some red fruit strawberry or raspberry. A whiff of nutmeg. With a few drops of water some grapes and minerals. Quite different to say the least.


Peat, orange, dark chocolate, liquorice, raspberry, pepper and again that farmy touch.


Peat, dark chocolate, lime and a little spice. A bit more conventional than the nose at least.

Pale straw

Sensation de tourbe grasse rien qu'en nez... J'arrive à comprendre Serge Valentin quand il dit "huile de moteur". On va dire, pour accentuer le trait, "huile de moteur de bateau de pêche en bord de mer" =) 

Beaucoup de tourbe, d'huile, d'iode, un peu d'agrumes. très Laphroaig : médicament, sirop pour toux (herbes médicinales et sucre)

Gras, huileux. Superbe texture.  Un peu goudronneux, de la terre, de l'iode, des agrumes, toujours les plantes médicinales, le sirop pour la toux. L'alcool est parfaitement intégré et l'ensemble a juste ce qu'il faut de sucre.


Plus austère. On retrouve de l'écorce d'orange, de la tourbe, et de la terre. Les plantes sont plus marquées. Moins de sucre. 

La finale n'en reste pas moins très longue et aromatique. 

Un superbe Laphroaig, surtout la texture, très huileuse, mais fine. Initialement 90 pour moi, mais l'aération lui a fait beaucoup de bien, donc un point de plus.

This is absolutely a brilliant whisky!!  Excellent nose on peat, smoke, brine etc combined with the sweetness of the sherry cask.  On the palate it`s more of the same!  Perfect balance, yet powerfull.  With just a few drops of water is becomes even better, more sweetish and fruitier but the peat and smoke are still present.  This is an absolute stunner!
