    H2H to
    What a great comparison, more alike to different.
    • Nose
      Quite rich peat, gunpowder, modern style, more cumin seeds, banans, and other spices compared to the Lagavulin, both are quite rich young sherry peaters.
    • Taste
      Sweet and peaty, more juicy sherry, quite easy drinking and enjoyable, new leather, high esters, peat juice, new leather.
    • Finish
      Long, high esters, young peat monster, great sherry peat integration, no over oaky tones, perfect but sad there isn't much after 2013....

    Aroma: strong, sherry, slightly alcoholic. There is a lot of fire smoke, peat is felt as an imperious and invincible wave. Then sherry, prunes, dates, licorice, hairspray, ether. Very powerful.

    Taste: slightly burning, peppery-sharp. Smoke and sea peat. Strong dry sherry and oak, Madeira, dried apricots and pomegranate. Marinade, slightly salty prunes, light note of creosote, spices, cloves. Walnut bitterness.

    Finish: slightly tart, fruity smoky. Peat rules the ball. Very long and open aftertaste.

    Wow, what a nose and palate - one of the few Laphroaigs that I like - fantastic!
    Just the age and the current price doesn't match...
    • Nose
      92 92
      Intense, fresh, seabreeze, iodine, smoked fish, citrusy, lemons, also dark fruits, berries or dried fruits, new wood, spices, nutmeg, meaty, ham and bacon, sausages - very good!
    • Taste
      93 93
      Very punchy, oily, liquorice, soy sauce, good sweetness, Worcester sauce too, more dried fruits, plums, dates, sherry wood, pork belly - great!
    • Finish
      92 92
      Long, warm, spicy, more punchy

    Very nice typical young sherried laphroaig though I would never have guessed it was just 7yo

  7. peatbogger scored this whisky 92 points Specialist

    Very well ballanced, and different in a positive manner.
    • Nose
      No doubt it's a Laffy, but it's light and gentle.

      Peat is light and sweet.

      Not so medicinal, more fruity and bright.

      Juicy Clementines, hint of vanilla and honey with an almost bourbon sweetness.

      Some darker notes, raisins and also liqorice, but not a pronounced PX finish.
    • Taste
      Peat is more prominent, very clean.

      Moderatly spicy, some prune compote.

      Turning dry and lightly astringent with spices growing as it goes down.
    • Finish

      Spicy warm, powerfull.

      Drying oak and burnt wood.

  8. Sonett scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    I would not have guessed a 7 YO if I did not know. It feels a lot more mature than that
    • Nose
      Immidealty the typical Laphroaig nose with charcoal smoke, then also in the background some sherry tones like Raisins, Dates and Figs
    • Taste
      Enters Soft fruity and sweet, then turning into peppery spices
    • Finish
      Medium long to long. When the spices fades away a slightly dry bitterness appears with a light woody finale
