  1. Jeep51 scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    Well done. Typical aromas of Laph. That it was beautifully complicated. On the other hand, a little too heavy and tiring.
    • Nose
      BBQ smoke first. Spray, iodine, very "coastal" nose. The sherry adds a touch of complexity: barbecue, but also bacon. It's relatively massive! At aeration, the sherry is more felt: caramel, hazelnut.
    • Taste
      Very Laphroaig. Medicinal, licorice, very spicy and especially lots of pepper. The whisky is thick, bulky. By cons, no trace of alcohol. May be some traces of chocolate and praline.
    • Finish
      Long, on a smoky peat

    I'm starting to appreciate the peat / sherry duo. Too bad that it is so expensive ...
    • Nose
      Nice balance in peat and sherry. Barbecue sauce, beef jerky. Then things get clearer on both sides. Smoke, medicinal scents, wet dog. As well as candied red fruits and wood glue.
    • Taste
      Ample, on sherry, perfectly integrated alcohol.
    • Finish
      On the fire, smoked ham, a fairly dry peat, all tempered by the sweetness of sherry.

    • Nose
      Sherry doped with peat! Lemon, wax, barbecue sauce. Honed, sharpened, the peat takes on a farmer's accent, acrid. The barrel expresses a posteriori and brings a little sweetness to a rather massive volume of aromas.
    • Taste
      Intense and precise, on spices (cloves, pepper especially, but also paprika ...). The roundness of acquires gradually, sip after sip.
    • Finish
      Chocolate and barbecue sauce! Endless peat.

      An impressive and intense whisky, even if it's not my favorite style. Not nag, but ... "maximalist".

      Enthusiasm 4/5

    A big fat Laph with sherry as we like them.
    • Nose
      Big fat peaty-sherry: fat and medicated peat, salt in abundance, tar, bitter cocoa, grenadine, bitter orange, new leather, smoked meat. Not especially subtle, but far from monolithic.
    • Taste
      The peat is oily and earthy, marked by the fresh bitterness of licorice, bitter orange and salt. A lot of tar and coal smoke as well as tobacco, then pepper and cinchona at the end of the mouth. Less complex than the nose, but the superb integration of alcohol makes it extremely pleasant.
    • Finish
      Long, peaty (charcoal smoke), strongly marked by licorice, gentian, cinchona, as well as a pleasant note of blackberry that barely manages to float in the middle of this maelstrom of ashes.

    I like it as it is not too medicinal as most Laphroaigs - very nice sherry wood and sweetness - very good!
    • Nose
      91 91
      Meaty, ham and bacon, nutty, sherry wood, soy sauce, worcester sauce, dried fruits, plums, figs, little nutmeg too, whiffs of acacia honey, just little peat and smoke - very good!
    • Taste
      92 92
      Much more peat and smoke, more bonfire like - not much medicinal, citrus fruits and some dried fruits, subtle sweetness, oak wood, chocolate, more meaty notes - great!
    • Finish
      91 91
      Medium long, warm, spicy, fine peat and smoke remaining
