Whisky Reviews for Laphroaig 1998 LMDW

7 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 90.73 points

  1. lachaineduwhisky did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Mineral, precise and fine, it is more fleshy at the opening with the typical medicinal notes that settle. Generous, on candied citrus fruits, punchy and fragrant. The water releases aromatic herbs and cereal notes. On the palate, explosive on spices, including pepper, it is lively and radiant. Fresh fruit, with a sherry sweetness that coats everything. With water, the spices are increased tenfold and it becomes dusty, paradoxically. (It's a character that tends to disappear and not appear by adding water). Final long and maritime, without further development compared to the mouth. With water, it's beautiful when honey and coffee complete the panorama.

    Enthusiasm
    Nose & Mouth 4/5
    Final 3/5 (5/5 with water!)

    There appears to be two editions of this Laphroaig  - 700351 and 700353. Only 700351 is still available in shops still. Anybody tasted the second edition 700351. Do all of the artist series have 2 editions. With the Auchentoshan from last series and Bowmore from the most recent series the second edition is noticeably better. I do not see anything on the label saying batch 1 or 2 just different cask numbers. Confusing and not very transparent. Is one batch for Europe and the other for the USA and then later unsold bottles make it back to Europe?

    TASTING NOTE (LMDW): Color: topaz. Nose: intense, broad, deep. From exoticism to skin (mango, passion), strong spices (cloves, nutmeg), dark chocolate, heady flowers (broom), charcoal, a moist peat that breathes salt and spray. "iodine, leather, bacon plus some berries (strawberry). A voluptuousness, an incomparable silky. In a nutshell, this Laphroaig is huge. Palate: wonderful creaminess.It immediately offers a lot of fruits, classic, exotic, acidulous, sweet, bitter, with fluffy skin or much rougher ... Then, place the peat which turns in turn wet, dry or liquorice, intense smoke (fire) then invades the palate as well as notes of tobacco, zan and candy for coughing. Final: she literally caresses the palate and wraps it with a thin layer of tar and fresh tobacco. A few wildflowers dot the peat bogs that are open to us, and from now on, no alternative, we are and we will keep our feet buried in the peat. The Holy Grail for lovers. The retro-olfaction provides the pleasant sensation of smoking a great Havana. the empty glass is marked by artichoke heart and gentian root.

    Wrong cask number it´s 700353. I have this bottle. Don`t take the information from LMDW website it´s often wrong and the pictures are not real ones (for example degree is 49% on the picture for this bottle instead of 60,1)
