  2. aphex scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Very good nose, the kind of profile I like. Palate and finish need water to develop. Overall a very good and tasty Laphroaig.
    • Nose
      First whiffs on peat smoke, bonfire and pine resin. The last two unfortunately quickly disappear. Peat smoke, dried fruits, meaty, medicinal, earthy and coastal notes. Subtle nose overall.
    • Taste
      Oily, peaty, earthy, slightly ashy. Salt & pepper. With water, more fruits (oranges, dried fruits) and spices (ginger, pepper).
    • Finish
      Long, smoky and spicy.

  3. Luigisim scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    Strange dram. Very promising at nose with old style character. But in mouth the batch influences too much the spirit. At blind taste, would not recognize it as Laphroaig.
    • Nose
      Smell of old pharmacy and lot of sulfur
    • Taste
      Smoky notes overwhelmed by batch. Taste closer to port or sherry rather than whisky
    • Finish
      Medium and a bit too sweet

  4. Erik Elixir scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    tasted with Aby and JJ
    • Nose
      Laphroaig gun powder!, meaty, sherry, smoke and mushrooms
    • Taste
      peat, oily, pepper, briny - salt, a bit soapy and peat
    • Finish
      lingering with spices - pepper
