The first two drams from my newly opened bottle would rate it a 86, but after 5-7 weeks of being open and oxidization taking hold this has developed into a beauty. Very well balanced; the noise is a salty-brine-smoke with vanilla in the background, the taste is so well balanced with salty cream, smoke with biscuit, vanilla a touch of lemon meringue, the finish has a touch of salty toffy. A real pleasant dram I must say!

Peaty, but in combination with a nice fruitiness. Orange and peach. A dusty touch, but a pleasant one, and some vanilla. Water adds some herbs.

Taste

Peat, orange, malt, peach, salt and herbs.

Finish

Peat, apricot, chocolate, orange and ehhh... shoarma?

Comments

Peated whisky as it's meant to be. 89/90.

Nose

smoke, sea, salty bacon, pepper, lemon

alcohol could have been implemented better
Taste

Citrus fruits, herbs, smoke and spicy pepper due to the alcohol

Finish

Very dry but long finish with a lot of herbs. Very nice!

Comments

All in all a good Laphroaig which is not representing something special or outstanding that you might have never tried but is solid and tastes good. What else do you need? :)

Nose
Medizinisch, wenig Desinfektionsmittel geräucherter Speck, einiges an Torfrauch, Laugenbrezel, ein wenig Lösungsmittel und im Hintergrund einige Früchte und etwas Sherry. 

Taste
Schöner Alkoholgeladener Antritt, dann zuerst Stress Sherry und dann viel Bourboneinfluss. Pfeffrig, rau und wild. Sehr lecker und relativ trocken.
Finish
Trocken und kurz. 

Comments

Ich finde ihn oldschool und irgendwie toll, obwohl er nicht so komplex im Mund ist.

Color
Jonquiripe corn
Nose

Gerste eingehüllt in Rauch und Phenole, aber auch fruchtige Noten wie Aprikose.

Taste

Rauchig, süsse und pfeffrige Noten. Der Geschmack wird aber nicht wie bei anderen Whiskies auf der Zunge wahrgenommen, sondern durch seine trockene Art eher neben der Zunge.

Finish

Abruptes Ende im Finish durch seine trockene Art. Aber trotzdem eine interessante Erfahrung.

Comments

Das rauchige sehr trockene Finale bei diesem Whisky ist sehr speziell!!!
