  1. Stanzeflasche scored this whisky 85 points Member Senior

    It's the Laphroaig nose, one would recognize it among a thousand. But this one is a hair more abrupt, more smoked, less iodized and more syrupy. We feel the influence of bourbon, it goes very well with ash and betadine, softening slightly. The little that is modified on the nose is modified to taste. A slight sweet influence, but overall we remain in a known universe, caramel, chocolate and cola, married to peat and vegetable notes. A somewhat sparkling finish, full of coffee and moderately long. We appreciate the power of alcohol, and that of peat, nevertheless I prefer the 10 years of age, more refined and more typical.

  2. Calmar scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    A typical representative of the young peaty Ayla in general and Lafrouge in particular - phenolic, not too complicated, spicy, compared with the 10-year-old is more simple and rude.
    • Nose
      Typical for the distillery are marine and medical tones with smoke and peat - cooled coals of fire, dry peat, charcoal briquettes, ash, fresh bandages, odors dressing, iodine, smoked meat, leather goods.
    • Taste
      Ash-coal, peat, pepper, gradually rolling down the sweet wave, a little cream and dried fruits in the background;
    • Finish
      Dry, peat, coal, light oak bitterness, pepper, resin, long.

  3. Rosebank88 scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Wonderfully phenolic, lush peat smoke, then salt, floral aromas of flower soaps, juniper and laurel. Beautiful sea flavors follow as well as medicinal elements, such as cough syrup, iodine, gauze bandages or plaster. Will then always ashier; Coal dust, burnt lilac and slightly vanilla oak.
    • Taste
      Soft and full in the body. Then delicious notes of peat smoke, salt, herbal tinctures, juniper and various flower soaps.
    • Finish
      Long, medicated, peaty and salty. Later ashier.

    price quality ratio tough to beat, if you love smoke. Gives you the things the more recent 10 yo has been lacking a bit. A solid and proud 86 points!
    • Nose
      something sweet nutty, immediately followed by salty tones, wet ash, firewood, smoke, and mineral peatiness
    • Taste
      smoke, more smoke, peat, mineral, sweet and salt (band aid), sweet and sour, some alcohol roughness and yes... smoke
    • Finish
      long, smoke and toffee, wet peat, something oily.

  6. Joe Karacho scored this whisky 86 points Expert Junior

    A little one-dimensional, but what he does he does more than neat. A nice strong Islay smoker, I like better than the standard 10, but is worlds behind the CS. The latter I would, if available, r always prefer for the corresponding surcharge.
    • Nose
      Immediately the laphroaigeypische, medical smoke, iodine, behind it vanilla and some oak
    • Taste
      Strongly smoky and sweet, the alcohol pushes forward, bright fruits and some caramel, but the smoke is consistently in the foreground
    • Finish
      Long, smoky, slightly spicy and sweet

    Nose:- Nutty with pinch of salt. Constant heat of mashed ginger. Palate:- Less candy compare to 10YO, with a lot more heat, oak and
    roughness. Pungent over burnt orange caramel. Lightly salted mashed
    ginger water.

    Finish:- Oily and creamy coconut essence, burning cedar wood, cigar smokes and throat warming. Sticky.
