Whisky Reviews for Laphroaig 1998 TWC

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 86.00 points

  1. Lafroy scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Definitely
      fresh, peaty, salty, lemon zest and medicinal notes. It smells much younger
      than it really is. Hints of nuts and seaweeds to it.
    • Taste
      Peaty and
      very salty with hints of lemon zest, medicinal notes and seawater. Classic Laphroaig,
      not that watery as I expected at this strength.
    • Finish
      Medium long,
      salty, peaty and a little hot.

  2. magic_slim scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    Very good whisky but not more than standard Laphroaig quality.
    • Nose
      Warming, starting with an explosion of peaty and farmy notes. Medicinal aromas and campher as well as lemon zest. Fresh and clean - a beautiful typical Laphroaig nose.
    • Taste
      Warming and already tamed to some extent in comparison to cask strength by the addition of water. Mild peaty and medicinal aromas, notes of tea and also a little zesty. Good, but the nose was much better.
    • Finish
      Long and peaty with some pepper coming up.
