  2. Calmar scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    What we have here, Brother-1, is a fairly simple whisky, a minimal set of smoky peat derivatives plus a port, very minimalistic, not to say that it’s poor and watery, but like that, everything is light, Lor still remains undefeated.

      Restrained, dry, dry boards, peat, charred branches, light sweet, wine notes, berry jam, ash.
    • Taste

    A good, not great Port-aged Malt.
    The Benriach 17yo Solstice is definitely the better Option for around the same Price.

    Laphroaig Brodir. Consumed July 2018. Smells like a Speyside sherried whisky - very plasticky, lots of sherry/port with no peat. Would never have this down as an Islay from the nose. Body is very rounded and smooth. Taste is really very 'fortified wine' but with a huge boozy salt hit, plasticky, big boozy linger with some peat, plasticky and intense. Smoke is there but very restrained. Port builds a lot and by the end that's all I'm tasting. An interesting one to try. Almost sickly in the end. Wouldn't buy a bottle at £95 a go. Doesn't really work for me. I liked it to start but the drinkability isn't there - it just gets too sweet and sickly. I could see some people really liking it though. Slow going. (3.1/74)

    Fun malt, if you like the general style. Nice ruby port finish. Not worth more than maybe 80 EUR in my book, but if you find it on offer, go for it.

    Taste : strong
    Finish : long because is the alcohol seems strong

  8. martinbutterfly scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    ????: brown-ruby-dark orange
    ????: smoky, seaweed, warm, very slightly guilty, quite simple but pleasant, not a lot going on here, although it's quite fresh it's quite ok,
    ????: intensely peaty, sweet, strangely watery, subtly biting, flat like a board ...
    ????: short, a bit tart,
    Weak peat, hard to even give him "OK". It leaves a lot to be desired.
    ????: 3.5 / 10
    ????: 83/100

  9. EvilAFI scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    Very much Laphroaig, more ash and peat than port influence. Still good, but lacking a balance to make it great
    • Nose

      Dry phenolic ashy peat smoke, blueberry crumble, vanilla cream
    • Taste
      87 87
      Smoke and Peat, cherry, cream, citrus
    • Finish
      84 84
      Medium, ashy, bbq, charred meat, hint of sweetness (blueberry syrup)
