  1. The_Osprey scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    Laphroaig Original Cask Strength. No batch number - this is the one before batch 001. Short review with Paul at Laphroaig distillery. Taste vanilla, soap, soft smoke, breathy ... surprisingly easy - lovely smooth grains and smoke. So easy at the abv, soft impressions of banana and salt, a little oak. Very balanced 3.75/89

    How can you not remember Bono and U2 with their «unforgettable fire». Very lively and fiery, like a writhing dragon, drink. In my glass, like Prometheus in his hand, the flame of fire. However, I will not take it to people, but will use it myself.

      First the smoke, warm, like a log that hasn't been burned yet, warm smoke. Then there are smoked fruits and dried fruits, medicine and bandages are also here, but in small quantities.

      The oily taste of sweet ashes, as if you took out a jar of jam from the ashes and tasted it. It's hot, it burns the sky, it blows smoke, and you swallow it.

      This mass sinks lower and sets your stomach on fire, leaving a sweet and smoky aftertaste that paralyzes all the receptors in your mouth, which remains for a long time.

    LAPHROAIG 10yo CASK STRENGTH / 57.3% (Incidentally, the current cask is 55.7%)

    Dry iodine incense, calm down, smoked and refreshing peat incense.

    While exciting and spicy, there are plenty of mortiest sweetness.

    Minty cool refreshment, long finish with peat and dirty. http://blogs.yahoo.co.jp/distilled1973/29449830.html
