  1. ASWhisky scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    what do you want more than smoke lovers more notes, more tension? Yes, a 90 plus should have more but this Laphi creates as a "simple" whisky such a beautiful taste experience, a consistent line, a harmony without giving up all the tension, he stumbles at any point, he is easy to enjoy, that must be rewarded yes, I like him
    • Nose
      great smoky Laphraoig nose Sweet as popcorn with apricot jam in the peat smoke smoking wood ash with tar paper he bites and flatters at the same time
    • Taste
      in the beginning pleasantly soft and sweet then comes the wood / peat fire, the sweetness develops on the palate, the bite on the tongue Wood ash, peat smoke, apricot jam, bitter & sweet simply delicious and tasty for smoke lovers
    • Finish
      long, warm, smoking in the throat, sweetness now on the tongue and on the palate, from apricot jam slowly becomes a physalis

  4. Rom scored this whisky 91 points Expert Junior

    The peat is very powerful, clove and a rather pronounced floral side (lavender). Sweet and tart attack then peat makes its entry. However, we find in the mouth the floral side and a hint of liquorice. Integration is exemplary, just like on the nose. A medicinal peat continues to unfold in the very long finish but without bitterness. An excellent batch.

  10. Luigisim scored this whisky 92 points Expert Senior

    Great raw dram, simple but at the same time full of power. Cask just helped the maturation without interfering with the strong soul of this magnificent water of life

    Blind tasting notes from homemade Advent 2017 calendar, gentle gift of friends.
    • Nose
      Smell from a chimney full of peat, dense and powerful
    • Taste
      Strong raw dram. Smoked herring covered by honey with hints of salt: simply great!
    • Finish
      Long and powerful, the peat nicely embrace the throat. Basically the aftertaste does not end .....
