  1. HammerHead scored this whisky 80 points Expert Senior

    Laphroaig light, pretty much dispensable. There's a milder form of earthy peat smoke, some vanilla and spicy wood notes. Not a bad whisky, but I would pay a few (yes it's only a few) euro's more and get the 10 year old or quarter cask instead.

    Spicy peat, gentler than the normal 10s, but very tasty and a delicious entry-level smoker.

    Has a friend brought.
    Let's try ...

    The smoke in the nose does not immediately remind of Laphroaig.
    The scent is rather mild, delicate.

    Behind it damp, young wood.
    Spices round off.

    Slightly sweeter in the mouth, but quite mild.
    Almost, he does not even have 40%.
    Herbs, especially carnation.

    Funny, that is very strong in the taste,
    but you do not taste alcohol.

    In the flavor, hint present kumquat and pineapple candied fruits and that's all. The characteristic medical theme is not developed. An extract for six months in fresh barrels imparts at least some strength to a spirit as flat as tundra. Aftertaste with a noticeable bitterness. Why? (((

    It is a full whisky with initially a sweetie, followed by the classic dry, venous gray taste. Delicious aftertaste in which the rich fruits of the European barrels come back.
