  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. Archer scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    Of the annual appearing Cairdeas you should really omit none.
    • Nose
      Peat smoke, algae and seaweed, sea breeze, salt. Cooling the nose, a day at the sea. But then soon a fruity touch with mild peach and apricots, drizzled with lemon juice.
    • Taste
      Fruity-smoky onion with phenolic smoke and sautéed bacon. Slides oily over the tongue and spreads a pleasant, smoky-milk chocolate warmth in the mouth. Less decided fruit than in the nose, but apricots in honey are there. After a while come dark berries such as blackberries and black currants.
    • Finish
      Medium long, little dry, with cooling smoke, oak, mild herbs and berry fruit sweetness.

  8. Albaron scored this whisky 92 points Specialist

    An unusual Laphroaig that is very aromatic, extremely tasty with a rich fruit basket, wild but not impetuous, very multi-layered and complex
    • Nose
      Alcohol, slightly phenolic smoke, acetone, disinfectant, caramel, white grapes, wormwood, apricot, honey, tangerine (a fruit basket)
    • Taste
      phenolic cold smoke, white grapes, honey, caramel, tangerines, cream and some temple incense
    • Finish
      The smoke remains and the dry sweetness with grape sweetness
