      Old and tropical! Banana and fresh grapes, grapefruits, dry wood, light peat but quite smoky, ripe apple, peated creamy papaya. Smoked tropical heaven!

    [August, 2005]  Together with friends I emptied a bottle that I bought for 315 Euro in May, 2002.

    In my old rating system (ten scales that translate into WB points: 50 - 66 - 75 - 80 - 82,5 - 85 - 87,5 - 90 - 92,5 - 95) I scored this 95+.  My notes state "I am speechless - the best Laphroaig ever..."

    96 points from Serge at Whiskyfun.com:

    TASTING - Laphroaig 10 yo (43%, OB, Bonfanti Milano, bottled circa 1978) This version was bottled just before the ‘unblended’ ones (see the October 10 entry). Nose: absolutely stupendous, on all sorts of fresh and cooked fruits. It left me speechless… Mouth: fabulous attack on peat and spices, with tons of dried fruits and dried herbs. An incredible richness, brilliantly elegant. The best Laphroaig I have ever tasted, punto basta. I know, these notes were short, but I've been stunned - yeah, let's do this! 96 points.
