  1. lachaineduwhisky did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    A vigorous Laphroaig, marked by its legendary peat but also with a good dose of oak. Behind this first curtain, is it coffee or chocolate? Sugar, and salt rub together wonderfully. A zest of orange or lemon? Lively and salty mouth. Finale with a big dose of salt and coffee, very long like any good self-respecting Laphroaig. 250th whisky tasted. To you, my son, Alban, who has just been born. Sláinte Mhath

  2. Johan Van Samang scored this whisky 92 points Expert Senior

    I`m not a big fan of jongish Laphroaig, mostly too much on ashy smoke and brine. But this is an exception. Smooth, pungent indeed, but yet delicate, very complex. Nicely clean and mineral profile, with more fruit than usual in these young Islayers of the South coast.

  3. Willie JJ scored this whisky 93 points Expert Senior

    This is a stunning Laphroaig. Really first order stuff.
    • Nose
      Super pungent with germolene, calomine lotion, lemon juice in crab shells, castor sugar and some light tannins.
    • Taste
      Amazingly citrusy for Laphroaig. Plenty of sugar and smoke, but extraordinarily refreshing.
    • Finish
      Develops into the most amazing iodine-loaded, tannic, heathery gem.
