- Tasting Notes:https://whiskycuse.wordpress.com/2014/08/09/laphroaig-19671982-duthies-for-samaroli-sherry-cask-57-vol/
- Deeply lacking in imperfection. I had the wish for all whiskies to be "normally" this good.
Color: Old Gold - Amber
Nose: Absolutely peaty citrus fruits and wild, dark berries with smoky phenols, shoe leather and excellent tobacco aromas. Syrup-like sherry and balsamico in creamy vanilla. The citrus and orange fruit flavors have a very invigorating nose. Old cedar wood, soaked in the finest, smoky tobacco flavors.
Taste: What on earth is that ?! Explosive to the touch based on dried peat bales, sherry deluxe, fruity berries, cigars and the finest cedar wood. A honey-balsamic sweetness with malty flavors is added, as well as notes of shoe polish, mint, eucalyptus, hazelnuts and ingeniously bound wood (the wood runs parallel with the spicy sweetness).
Finish: Ultralong ... Wood-malt-peat-smoke-tobacco-phenol-sherry-cocoa-wood-malt-peat-smoke-sherry ...
Comment: And again - whisky is out of this world! On the same level as the Ardbeg Kingsbury.
97 points (nose: 97 / taste: 98 / finish: 97)

Colour: mahogany. Nose: even more
of everything plus a fantabulously
chocolaty and smoky sherry. I’m
sorry, the rest will be censored by
the anti-maltoporn brigade. Mouth:
my god. Finish: my god. Comments:
this is why we’re into whisky.
We’re approaching perfection
here. By the way, did you know the
joke about this guy who wanted to
cook a turkey with whisky and who............
SGP:878 – 98 points.
This is one of only four whiskies that
score 98/100 from Serge Valentin on whiskyfun.com. Widely regarded as
one of the greatest bottlings of the past forty years, this incredible
whisky is now all but impossible to find.
- An unbelievable 98 from Serge at WF. Can it really be that good?
