  1. wisekycourse scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    on the nose, concentrated and pleasant scents, sweetened at first on caramel, cinnamon, brioche, then candied citrus fruits, old and humidified wood ... and finally fat peat, and solvents of room of 'hospital!
    salty return! and on the maderized wine.
    • Nose
      earthy peat, medicinal air, candied fruit on exotic fruits.
      Important woody return that virtually removes peat
    • Taste
      peppery spices in front, peat, dry but stubborn, candied fruit, almost rotten, meat meat, impregnated wooden barrel spring.
      there is a candied caramel side in it.

  2. Calmar scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    Good malt, slightly sandwiched in aroma, but well revealed in taste / finish, quite rich and harmonious combination of smoky peat and sherry-tropical derivatives.
    • Nose
      Restrained, dry, peat, puer, a little ash, deep-frying oil, animal fat, spiky mineral notes, old processed wood, light sweet creamy shades in the background, burning leaves, dried fruits.
    • Taste
      Dense, saturated, peat, wine notes, sweet creamy shades, dried fruits - dried apricots, raisins; ash, sour-metallic notes, butterscotch, burnt crackers, tropical fruit compote, candied citrus fruits.
    • Finish
      Spicy, refreshing, peat, charcoal, sweet fruit notes - tropical fruits, raisins, dried grapes, fudge, burnt crackers, fruit beer, ginger.

  5. sagara-kun scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    Very balanced and good. Big peat but balanced.
    • Nose
      Beautiful medicinal peat. Camphor, eucalyptus.
      Smoke, cold ashes, tobacco. Straw, farmer. Dirty.
    • Taste
      In the mouth it's softer, less dirty.
      Lemon, medicinal, ashy.
      Pretty oily. Straw. Barley, cumin.
    • Finish
      Final on cold ashes, cigarettes, eucalyptus.

  6. Tom na Gruagaich scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    Sweet torfer with a lot of oak. the 1st Fill Bourbon Barrel hits.
    • Nose
      Sweet, earthy peaty, very spicy, some fruit, with something slightly medicinal.
    • Taste
      At first very sweet in the mouth, then directly peaty, some mint, some butter cookies, light sweet wine notes? Becomes tart and spicy over time, with light pinewood in the background.
    • Finish
      tart, spicy, slightly sweet notes light up from time to time, bitter-sweet end, more tart than sweet at the end, with some of essential oils.

    • Nose
      gentle smoke, fresh mint, lemons, peach, caramel;
    • Taste
      strong full on, lemons, salt, medicated phenolic smoke, charred wood, ash, pepper;
    • Finish
      long peppery spicy finish; in the end, ash;

  8. Archer scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    After-tasting after two years: Quality maintained despite oxygen contact in the half-empty sample vial. A really good Laphroaig.

  9. Helgo scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    For me one of the best Cairdeas. The connection Laphroaig with Amontillado Sherry works mE excellent. A very complex malt with a long finish. I would like to see a full maturation of this.
