  2. Dede scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    Laphroaigs of this age are not so common. This one is excellent. Little peaty, he develops less known aspects of this beautiful distillery. Dry but not austere, it is also dangerously drinkable, the 46% being very well exploited despite the attack a little light. A success.
    • Nose
      Peat is present from the outset, but much more melted and discreet than in the younger versions. It mixes with citrus zest and then is slightly medicinal (ether, hospital corridor) but mostly marine (iodine, spray). Some minerality is constantly present in the background.
    • Taste
      The attack, a bit soft, gives fear for the future. Fortunately, the overdrive is quickly passed. This mouth is characterized by marine notes reminiscent of Talisker. Then citrus fruits (lemon) develop before the arrival of white pepper. The peat absolutely does not dominate, it frames, structure all together with the mineral notes already present on the nose.
    • Finish
      Long, it is more peaty than the mouth and develops a beautiful bitterness of gentian that complements the marine and lemony notes of the mouth.
