    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.

    A very nice and gentle Laphroaig. Not quite my expectation but nevertheless a nice and enjoyable whisky. More a warm summer evening Laphroaig than a cold winter one
    • Nose
      Soft medicinal peat with lemon and chocolate
    • Taste
      Lemon and vanilla with a gentle medicinal peaty smoke
    • Finish
      Medium long and warm and peppery at the end

    Even more pointless than the Four Oak. LP drinkers don't need an "entry" malt. Either you like LP or you don't. What a watered down young mess. Spend only a few more bucks and get the 10, if you mind.

    While this is far from spectacular, it’s not quite the disaster I’ve seen people make it out to be, objectively speaking. This seems to me like a very good option in those bottom shelf, budget style single malts.
    • Nose
      80 80
      Briny sea smoke, tea, citrus, medicinal.
    • Taste

      Light smoke, herbal, apple.
    • Finish
      84 84
      Iodiney smoke, oak, spice. Fairly short.

    I choose to start with Select before the 10 year old or the QC. Nice whisky, peated with some surprises there
    • Nose
      82 82
      Peat, old wood, iodine, black tea, dark chocolate and hints of raisins
    • Taste
      80 80
      Medicinal, peat, mint, solvent/wood polish are dominant, but there are also walnuts, ginger, dark chocolate and fresh fruits (maybe peaches).
    • Finish
      80 80
      Medium finish, charcoal, salty, peanuts, old wood and tobacco.
