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

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.

Comments

That drying effect continues in the long finish, but then it again turns surprisingly sweet on vanilla and honey.

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.

Color
Pale gold
Nose

Es braucht eine Weile, bis sich hier etwas zeigt. Zurückhaltende Nase.  Nach einiger Zeit hat sich dann milder Torfrauch, vergammelter Fisch Vanille und Honig am Alkohol vorbeigearbeitet. 

Taste

Fast schon mild legt sich Torfrauch und Salz auf die Zunge. Gesmoktes Schwein, Wacholderbeeren, Pfeffer und süßes Paprikagewürz. Auch die Vanille und der Honig aus der Nase sind da. 

Finish

Mittellang bis kurz, rauchig, vanillesüß.

Comments

Der wirkt jung, ist aber gut ausbalanciert. Der Abgang hätte gerne noch etwas länger ausfallen können.

Color
Deep gold
Nose

Turf, rook, houtsvuur. Na een tijdje wordt dit minder. Leer. Komt ook wat sinaasappelschil door, karamel, bruine suiker, en wat sigaartabak.

Taste

Droog voor in de mond, salmiak. Heel licht pepertje, toffee, chocola, rook, as. Ook wat peer en meloen.

Finish

Iets meer peper nu, Lakrisal. Later wordt de finish weer zachter. Leer, beetje kruidig, nog licht toffee/chocola, rook. Vrij lange finish.

Comments

Mooie Laphroaig, vooral het drogige gevoel in de body en finish valt op. Erg aangenaam.

Deze fles op feis ile 2011 meegenomen, een typische laphroaig op bourbon. Een matige olieachtige viscose, blijft mooi in het glas hangen. Op de neus de klassieke laffie/rook geur, na enkele minuten luchten, zeer subtiel, komen de wat zoete tonen opzetten in combi met subtiele rook. In de mond is deze met water zacht en zoet, proef iets van houtskool !, snel drogend, enigszins wrang en bitter, met water is deze whisky beter, cs 84 punt. Met water een 86. De 2010 editie heb ik ook geprobeerd en die sprong er met 90 punt toch beter uit, dus mogelijk hogere verwachtingen. Ondanks dat had ik toch gelijkwaardig of beter verwacht, ondanks dat, blijft dit een mooie, eenvoudige laffie. Op cs sterkte vindt ik deze niet echt geweldig, te rauw en niet soepel en in balans. Met water daarin tegen is de whisky juist zacht, komen de typische Laphroaigtonen bovendrijven. Dit is wel een whisky die je kunt drinken maar wel de tijd voor moet nemen, ook enkele minuten luchten is goed voor deze whisky. 86 punt met water.

Nose

seasalt, bacon, peat. Classic Islay Laphroaig smell!

Nevertheless it has a great balance and is sweeter and more elegant than the last Laphroaig 10 CS Batches!
Taste

toffee and honey sweetness but of course also pepper, peat and smoke. Still a good balance even if the alcohol comes through every now and then (pepper note)

Finish

lovely finish with some little oaky notes if you have the dram too long in the mouth. As shorter the dram is in the mouth as better the finish seems to be :-) 

Comments

Ok it is very unspectacular vs the Wine Finishes etc. But compared to all other Cairdeas 2012-2016 that I have tried I like this one the most. A very well done Islay Whisky!
