L'ajout d'eau amplifie le citron/ acidité citrique ce qui tend à désorganiser l'ensemble.

Nose

Tourbe fine et intégrée . Assez calme pour un Laphroaig, discret . On retrouve de la fumée , de la tourbe fine . De la vanille juste ce qu'il faut. Très équilibré et absolument non démonstratif . Une machine de précision. J'y retrouve du laurier, des baies de genévrier et du thymol. Une touche métallique, pierre à briquet. De l'iode . Du gingembre.

Taste

Démarrage en rondeur, mais on sent qu'il y en a sous le capot. Bam! La puissance se fait sentir. Mais tout y est progressif et comme bridé. S'en suit une vague poivrée / fumée .

Finish

Le finish est plus sage et s'assèche un peu. Une belle amertume s'installe sur un lit malté pour arrondir les angles. L'ajout d'eau n'est pas nécessaire selon moi. Je retrouve les épices aromatiques du nez et l'huile essentielle de thym.

Comments

Un Laphroaig version chic . Incontestablement bien fait. Pour les fans de Laphroaig brutalement medicinal, celui ci n'est pas pour vous.

Nose

Très clean, très Laph. Tourbe médicinale, camphré accompagné de réglisse et d’herbes aromatiques, ainsi que de quelques agrumes (citron surtout) et de gingembre. Clean et incisif.

Taste

Plus complexe et plus puissante. Surtout sur la tourbe mais celle-ci est plus terreuse et plus cendrée. Toujours du camphre et de la réglisse.

Finish

Très très longue. Camphrée, wet dog.

Comments

Sensations contrastées entre le nez (incisif et relativement ciselé) et la bouche (plus grasse et plus expressive). En tout cas c’est vraiment plaisant

Nez typique d'un Laphroaig, très tourbé, très puissant. Mais rien de fantastique.
En bouche l'eau lui donne un gros plus en diffusant les arômes. La tourbe est moins lourde et pétille aux quatre coins de la bouche.   
La finale est très longue avec un petit coté mentholé assez agréable.
Un bon Laphroaig, dommage que le nez ne nous offre pas un petit plus pour passer la barre des 90. 89/100

Nose

Less powerful and peated than the Whisky-Doris Laphroaig that I tried immediately before. More on citric, lemony notes, also lemon cake with vanilla, a little ginger and a decent but delicate peatyness.

Taste

Warming and now the peat is more powerful than on the nose with an additional dusty earthyness and camphor. Nevertheless it stays elegant and very tasty with notes of sweet lemonade, honey and white pepper.

Finish

Long, smooth, clean and pleasant with the peaty notes lingering on and the finish becoming more and more peppery.

Comments

Elegant and perfectly matured Laphroaig without any faulty notes. Nevertheless I prefer the younger more brutal Laphroaigs, like the Whisky-Doris 2010 that I tasted immediately before.
