  4. markjedi1 scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    That drying effect continues in the long finish, but then it again turns surprisingly sweet on vanilla and honey.
    • Nose
      While the nose starts with loads of peat smoke, this quickly fades to make room for oranges and tobacco, followed by brown sugar and oyster sap. But that also needs to move over for salted bacon on the barbecue. And yes, this is wonderful!
    • Taste
      The palate follows through on the nose: smoky at first, then sweet and then salty. It goes up and down, but is nicely balanced. Some pepper and nutmeg provide a spicy touch. Midpalate it turns quite dry, though.
    • Finish

    great Lappy,
    starts really sweet and fruity in the nose, pear and melons. Later on it shows more peatiness.

    in the mouth: full of flavour and quite well balance. 
    Finish is also rather long, peaty and sweet.

  7. Archer scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    He looks young, but is well balanced. The finish would have liked to be able to turn out a little longer.
    • Nose
      It takes a while, until something shows up here. Low-key nose. After some time, then mild peat smoke, rotten fish vanilla and honey has worked past the alcohol.
    • Taste
      Peat smoke and salt are almost mild on the tongue. Smoked pork, juniper berries, pepper and sweet paprika. Also the vanilla and the honey from the nose are there.
    • Finish
      Medium to short, smoky, vanilla sweet.

    Beautiful Laphroaig, especially the dry feeling in the body and finish is striking. Very pleasant.
    • Nose
      Peat, smoke, wood fire. After a while, this becomes less. Learn. Also comes some orange peel, caramel, brown sugar, and some cigar tobacco.
    • Taste
      Dry in the mouth, salmiak. Very light pepper, toffee, chocolate, smoke, ash. Also some pear and melon.
    • Finish
      Something more pepper now, Lakrisal. Later the finish will become softer again. Leather, slightly spicy, still toffee / chocolate, smoke. Pretty long finish.

  10. pim75 scored this whisky 85 points Member Junior

    This bottle on February 2011, a typical laphroaig on bourbon. A moderate oily viscose remains in the glass. On the nose the classic laffie / smoke smell, after a few minutes of airing, very subtle, the somewhat sweet tones come in combination with subtle smoke. In the mouth it is soft and sweet with water, taste something like charcoal!, Quick drying, slightly bitter and bitter, with water this whisky is better, cs 84 point. With water a 86. The 2010 edition I have tried and that jumped with 90 points still better, so possibly higher expectations. Despite that, I still expected the same or better, despite that, this remains a nice, simple laffie. At cs strength, I do not really like it, too raw and not smooth and in balance. With water in it, the whisky is just soft, the typical Laphroaig tones come to the surface. This is a whisky that you can drink but you have to take the time for it, also a few minutes of airing is good for this whisky. 86 point with water.
