Whisky Reviews for Laphroaig 1999 DL

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 87.30 points

  1. LukasJakubDrabek did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Ralfy review 456: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z5hR1vCPxco (90/100).

    "Very earthy, tasty, metallic Laphroaig. Wonderful stuff. It's a dry, bitter, almost metallic, flinty, coal tar, intense Laphroaig. Plenty of salt, plenty of brininess in there. That classic TCP note very much on the tongue."

  2. Nolloff scored this whisky 82 points Expert Junior

    After a promising, aromatic nose follows a surprisingly watery mouthfeel. On the palate there is quite a sweetness and despite the thin and fragile nature of this whisky quite an amount of sharpness and alcoholic burn. Water immediately drowns it. The finish is clearly Laphroaig but absolutely one-dimensional. The price/value ratio here is quite abyssmal and this might be the first Laphroaig I have tasted I would consider disappointing.

    P.S. My bottle does not mention sherry butts anywhere. Maybe there were some in a 50 mile radius.
