Nose

Etwas Alkohol, phenolischer Rauch, frisch, Toffee, etwas Rosinen, leicht salzig, ein Hauch Trockenfrüchte

Taste

Alkohol ist gut eingebunden, schöner aromatischer Rauch, leicht medizinisch, malzig, Rosinen, etwas Kaffee, Karamell, ein Hauch Lakritz

Finish

der Rauch und die schöne Malzigkeit bleiben lange

Comments

Da ist alles drin was ich mag. Schöner phenolischer Rauch, ein Hauch Sherry, Malzigkeit. Super Sache, ein schöner Standard. Wenn er jetzt noch mit Altersangabe wäre wäre er quasi perfekt.

Nose

Mineralischer und phenolischer Torf strömt aus dem Nosingglas, eine sehr dezente Rauchnote kommt hinzu. Ein Hauch Süße, Anklänge von Orangenaromen und eine leichte Vanillienote dominieren jetzt die Nase. Die Nase wirkt für einen Laphroaig relativ weich und süß, hölzerne Holzelemente liegen dezent im Hintergrund. Langsam wird die Nase alkohollastiger und dezent sprittig, jedoch verströmt der Torf ein weiches und fruchtiges Aroma. Eine modrige Ledernote hebt sich aus dem aromatischen Torf, die dezente Rauchnote kehrt zurück.

Taste

Kräftiger Torf vermischt sich sofort beim ersten Schluck mit kalter Asche, die Glut erlischt und verbranntes Holz verströmt Lagerfeuerromantik. Fruchtiger und süßer Torf folgt dem glimmenden Glut, dezente Schärfe entsteht durch eine Prise Pfeffer welcher sich kraftvoll auf der Zunge verteilt. Würzigen Holzelementen folgen mineralische Noten, etwas Salz und Erde kommen zur Geltung. Feiner Torf verströmt ein intensives Aroma und lässt den Geschmack langsam in den Abgang übergehen.

Finish

Süßer und doch würziger Torf legt sich über die Zunge, ein feines und kaltes Raucharoma füllt den kompletten Mundbereich. Süße und Frucht wechselt sich mit Torf und leicht herben Holzelementen ab, cremig und wärmend verströmt der Abgang dieses wunderbare und weiche Torfaroma.

Comments

Dieser Triple Wood ist für mich der eleganteste und weichste Laphroaig aus der Standardrange. Weicher, süßer Torf und fruchtige Elemente harmonieren perfekt mit der voluminösen Torfnote und dem dezenten Raucharoma. Der Triple Wood zählt zu meinen absoluten Lieblingen und dieser süffige Malt kann ganz schön gefährlich werden ;-)

Yellow gold
Nose

Might seem somewhat flat and discreet from the first few sniffs. As if something manufactured - not natural, has been trapped in the smell, near plastic, lacquer paint, solvent, nail polish? But then I get a touch of candyfloss, uzvar, prunes, custard/creaminess along with peat phenols, of course, TCP, camphor, medicinal notes of plasters, peroxide?, gauze bandage.

Later on, vanilla-infused fruit come to life, melon, dried pears, (dried) apple compote.

Taste

Sweet malt(-iness), almonds, hints of milk chocolate, prune, liquorice, hot cocoa, soft peat/creamy peat, smoked cheese (Gouda?), next to a bitter orange, candied ginger and burnt wood.

It's tasty, yes, savoury; but again, initially tastes rather simple, I'd say, dull, in a way. It is clean and thinner than I like my trusty Laphroaig to be, so, obviously, lacking structure there, I thought. And wrongly so. The depth is all right, really, although body's not that heavy, it feels like medium bodied sooner.

Finish

Smidgeon of sour cream. Peanuts dipped into sour cream, followed by confectionery sweetness, then getting dryer, woodier. Tannic-dry at the end, a touch of turpentine?, linseed, thyme, white tea, cumin.

Comments

Many-sided, gentle and elegant, those are my epithets for this particular Laphroaig.

Opinions are like assholes, everybody's got one.

Tak tohle není klasická chuť Laphroaig. Přesto, že první dvě fáze zrání probíhají stejně jako u varianty Laphroaig Quarter Cask, tzn.: nejprve v klasických sudech z amerického bílého dubu po bourbonu a poté v malých sudech tzv. Quarter Cask. Třetí, poslední fáze zrání, probíhá v pečlivě vybraných sudech z evropského dubu po Oloroso Sherry. Od laphroaig 10 Yo, Quarter Cask i Select se celkem dost liší.

Zdá se jemnější a vyváženější. Je zde cítit větší zemitost a dřevitost. Rašelinovitost je slabší. Závěr je překvapivě dlouhý a celou dobu ho provází mihotavý stín sherry.

I když mu chybí ten nádherně drzý náznak dezinfekce který má 10 Yo.

Nose

Nuts, wood, smoke, medicinal, peat and fruit. Really complex.

Taste
Taste is oily, sweet and full of peat but not classical 10 Yo peat but smoother and and less salty and there is also more wood and a soil.

Finish
There is some coffee i think. And a lot of beautifully smooth peat and a little bit of salt and flickering shadows of sherry.

Comments

I really like this one.

Plus floral et côtier que le Laphroaig Quarter Cask, et un peu moins complexe sans doute (quoique je n'ai goûté qu'un échantillon), mais pas mal quand même.
