  1. Ostfriese scored this whisky 92 points Expert Senior

    A very nice nose typical of Laphroaig combined with great, intense aromas on the tongue and on the palate. Laphroaig Bourbon Cask might not be perfect, but damn good and close to the Distillery Only 2009 that I was able to try recently
    • Nose
      Heavy peat smoke rises from the glass and a breeze of salty sea air wafts the smell of seaweed and algae that mixes with the now ashy peat smoke. Smoldering, charcoal wood carries sweet vanilla and the smell of forest honey. The smell of smoked ham emerges from the background, accompanied by iodine and tar, before it slowly mixes with the spicy notes of nutmeg, pepper and a hint of cinnamon. Old, oily leather and fresh limes swirl in the background.
    • Taste
      Unexpectedly sweet it first flows on the tongue before the powerful but pleasant peat smoke suddenly spreads in the mouth. Oranges, peaches and grilled zucchini transition into black pepper, nutmeg and toasted flavors. Forest honey and moist peat moss, the smoke becomes cooler and stronger again before phenolic notes slowly emerge. Iodine, tar oil and light citrus flavors mix with dark chocolate, coffee and sandalwood.
    • Finish
      Long, warm and slightly dry. Ashy peat smoke carries sweet vanilla, oranges and peaches with it before it slowly turns into coffee with milk. Nougat and Bensdorp cocoa turn into charred, spicy wood.
