    Bit more complicated than the 10 Y Laphroaig. A very spicy and fantastic whisky for a fair price.
    • Nose
      Light medicinal, honey and pepper. It burns a bit in the nose after a few minutes in the glass and it gets more aggressive and promising.
    • Taste
      Sweet start with a shot of pepper after. Peat and smoke. Full body and warm.
    • Finish
      Leaves a very warm feeling in the throat with a hint of smoke and sweetness.

    Interesting Laphroaig. Pronounced maturation influence. Spices are clearly wood derived. Takes little water.
    • Nose
      W/o water red fruit sweetness, mint, light eucalyptus (oil), bonfire smoke
      W/ water less sweet, more spice, mint, "Vicks Vaporub"
    • Taste
      W/o water sweet an d salt arrival, development from sweet, pepper, cinnamon candies, salty smoke finish
      W/ water sweet liquorice arrival, development of warm sweet liquorice candy to warm peppery salmiak.
    • Finish
      W/ water sweet, salmiak, peat-smoke

    Laphroaig Tasting Notes:

    Colour: Full sparkling gold

    Nose: Burning embers of peat in a crofters fireplace, hints of coconut, gorse and heather

    Body: Full bodied

    Taste: Deep, complex and smoky yet offers and surprises the palate with a gentle sweetness

    Finish: Really long, drying appropriately with smoke and spice

  8. Mr.Sandwich did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    You can taste his young age. Well suited for Islay beginners on a budget.
    • Nose
      Brittle, coastal flavors, phenolic smoke, slightly grassy, ​​farm, coconut.
    • Taste
      Medical smoke, hot spices like chili. Overall well balanced, but not exactly complex.
    • Finish
      Short and smoky, quickly drying.

  9. wheatfield scored this whisky 87 points Expert Junior

    Most recent shelf bottling. Gold pour. Nose is pleasantly smoke filled, lightly medicinal, banana cream, French flambé dessert. Seems less briny than the shelf 18 and 10, from memory. Mouth is a bit bitter, medicinal, and iodine upfront, then becomes peaty like an Islay scotch toward the middle and finish. That banana cream dessert shines in the finish too. Nice, very drinkable, approachable. It makes me want to investigate young, cask strength Laphroaigs.
