Whisky Reviews for Laphroaig 2000 MoS

5 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 88.37 points

  1. Thermidor scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    A well aged sherry Laphroaig that provides a good charred sherry taste, but also has a hint of rubberiness (rubber bands) in it. It's not the most complex (herbs, anise, charred wood, salty sea air), but it has a firmness that makes it satisfying, if not perhaps to the level of Signatory casks 700389 and 700393. It's interesting how half-baked the 7yo Elements of Islay Cl12 (83 pts.) feels compared to this, as if underlining the idea that proper sherry maturation requires time. The nose of this one doesn't quite match the greatness of Islay Malt 10yo Maltbarn, but the firmness of this one's body compares favourably to it.

    whiskyfun:

    Laphroaig 2000/2013 (58.7%, Malts of Scotland, sherry hogshead, cask #MoS 13010, 243 bottles) Colour: straw. Nose: interesting! Sure it’s not easy to nose such a high strength baby but I seem to find touches of white rhum agricole and candy sugar beyond the bandages and the antiseptic. Maybe also hints of walnut cake, possibly from the sherry cask. It seems that this will be lovely… With water: it is lovely, as much as a, say a Corvette can be lovely. Heavy briny and smoky young Laphroaig! Nah, it’s very classy, in fact. Mouth (neat): perfect, just perfect. Powerful, smoky brine and lemon juice but all that remains elegant. Olive oil and other oils, then lemon juice and salted liquorice. High quality youngster. With water: swallowing a dozen oysters with Tabasco and lemon juice. Finish: long, salty. The Tabasco got even louder. Comments: as great as Laphroaig can be at just twelve or thirteen. Gives you hope and faith but you have to love… Tabasco. SGP:268 - 90 points.

    Outstanding Laphroaig and a must try. So young and yet so complex.
    Recommended. Around 90 EUR.
    • Nose
      On the nose: yep, this is Laffie. Merchurochrome, disinfectant, the OR.
      In sum: medicinal raised to a square. Seaweeds, rocks in the surf, silt and
      sweet peat. Earth. Then a lot of citrus, lime juice in the lead. But the sherry
      has something to say as well. Butterscotch and orange peel. Some old leather. Cold coffee. Whipped cream. Salted butter.
      Gooseberries. Caramel. Hints of nuts and
      milk chocolate. Darn, this is pretty complex!
    • Taste
      Full body on the palate. Immediately the sweet peat emerges, but the
      sweet fruit makes a good comeback. The medicinal side will not be left behind.
      God, this is very good and eminently quaffable! It does not even cross my mind
      to add water to it. My mouth is watery of its own. Blood oranges dipped in
      honey, I kid you not. And then suddently a big saltiness with a wonderful
      bitterness from the oak smacks you in the face. Grand!
    • Finish
      The finish is complex and long.
