Color
Old gold
Nose

Характерные для винокурни морские и медицинские тона с дымом и торфом - остывшие угли костра, сухой торф, брикеты древесного угля, зола, свежие бинты, запахи перевязочной, йод, копчёное мясо, кожгалантерея.

Taste

Зольно-угольный, торф, перец, постепенно накатывающая сладкая волна, немного сливок и сухофруктов на заднем плане;

Finish

Сухое, торф, уголь, лёгкая дубовая горчинка, перец, смола, длительное.

Comments

Типичный представитель молодой торфяной Айлы вообще и Лафройга в частности - фенольный, не слишком сложный, питкий, по сравнению с 10-леткой более прост и грубоват.

Wunderbar phenolisch, üppiger Torfrauch, dann Salz, florale Aromen von Blumenseifen, Wacholder und Lorbeer. Schöne Meeresaromen folgen sowie medizinische Elemente, wie Hustensaft, Jod, Mullbinden oder Pflaster. Wird dann immer aschiger; Kohlenstaub, verbrannter Flieder sowie leicht vanillige Eiche.

Taste

Weich und voll im Körper. Dann köstliche Noten von Torfrauch, Salz, Kräutertinkturen, Wacholder und div. Blumenseifen.

Finish

Lang, medizinisch, torfig und salzig. Später aschiger.

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.

Comments

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

Sofort der laphroaigtypische, medizinische Rauch, Jod, dahinter Vanille & etwas Eiche

Taste

Stark rauchig und süß, der Alkohol drückt nach vorne, helle Früchte und etwas Karamell, der Rauch steht aber durchweg im Vordergrund

Finish

Lang, rauchig leicht würzig und süß

Comments

Etwas eindimensional, aber das was er macht macht er mehr als ordentlich. Ein schöner kräftiger Islay-Raucher, gefällt mir besser als der Standard 10er, liegt aber Welten hinter dem CS. Letzteren würde ich, falls verfügba,r auch für den entsprechenden Aufpreis immer vorziehen.

[April, 2014]  I had another dram during a FoSM club tasting.

In my old rating system (ten scales that translate into WB points: 50 - 66 - 75 - 80 - 82,5 - 85 - 87,5 - 90 - 92,5 - 95) I scored it 87,5.  My notes state "best bang for your bucks at the moment"...

There is no accounting for taste...

[November, 2012]  I had this dram during a Lion's club tasting near Würzburg.

In my old rating system (ten scales that translate into WB points: 50 - 66 - 75 - 80 - 82,5 - 85 - 87,5 - 90 - 92,5 - 95) I scored it 87,5.  I took no detailed notes as I knew it before.

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.

— at The Whisky Bar, Kuala Lumpur.

This has been a really agreeable expression to me. The medicinal, cough syrupy tones with iodine, heavy dark smoke and a thoroughgoing sweetness and a little more depth with the stronger wood-influence than in the OB 10 - and of course the heightened ABV seem work for me. I have never found quarter casks off-putting yet.
