Whisky Reviews for Laphroaig Lp9 ElD

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 84.00 points

  1. dram-drinker scored this whisky 80 points Moderator

    Burning, unbalanced, not a good combination - not my favorite - much better with a lot of water - but still not my favorite
    • Nose
      82 82
      Red berries, vinous notes, raisins, nuts, hints of sherry wood, spices, little floral, some dried fruit, whiffs of smoke
    • Taste
      80 80
      Punchy, good sweetness, more berries, more vinous notes, spicy, peppery, some peat and smoke, new wood, hints of sulphur

      Long, warm, spicy

  2. Thermidor scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    A strongly px-kissed Laphroaig, thankfully without the sulfury bits that often haunt these drams.
    • Nose
      Ashy and syrupy, with thick jammy notes and heavy peat. The nose doesn't feer particularly mature, but it is rich and loud, almost cartoonishly so.
    • Taste
      The % burns me, but I do like this thick, viscous, pitch-like stuff. Some faint hints of Jägermeister. I can't really find much tertiaries in this inky, herbal sherry-peat bomb, but that doesn't matter since everything here is spot on.
    • Finish
      Sadly not as long as the powerful taste leads you to expect.
