Not been able to get my hands on any of this stuff.

This was a sample from Dyno, tasted "blind" and the clear winner of the line up.

Nose

Bacon, salty smoked ham. Tar and dried seashells. Cigar leafs.

Gentle on the nose dispite high ABV.

Good ballance and very enticing nose.


Taste

Oily arrival befor going slightly dry and bitter. Rubber and tar.

Light hint of spice and a very nice underlying note of chocolate.


Finish

Quite sweet, then going sour, on the verge of astringent. Pleasantly so.

It's long and rather complex, ending on a note of sweet liqorice.


Comments

Only thing wrong with the CS is that Laphroaig makes way too little and mess things up further with ballots and draws.

Nose

Le nez est tourbé, malté, un peu d'iode, de cendre, avec 2-3 gouttes d'eau, la menthe poivrée.

Taste

En bouche c'est percutant! La tourbe est épaisse, l'iode, les plantes médicinales, le citron, mais malgré tout pas agressif, les saveurs explosent littéralement c'est impressionnant!

Finish

La finale est longue, tourbée, douce, très agréable.

Comments

Le verre vide respire la cendre et la tourbe minérale.

Batches 006 et 007 goûtés et excellents!

Nose

Closed, dull, less peaty and smoky in direct comparison to Batch 006.  Cold cigarette smoke, mineral ... Lapsang Souchong smoked tea ... after a while surprisingly notes of grated apple are coming up. Later on it changes to something slightly lemony.

Taste

Smooth. sweet and easy drinking at first mouthfeel, becoming breathtakingly smoky when swallowed followed by a brutal afterburner ... cough cough fire fire outch outch. After a while notes of licorice and dry herbal aromas are coming up.

Finish

Very long, smoky  and spicy, waming from deep inside.

Comments

Excellent Laphroaig, although Batch 006 is better in my opinion.

Nase: Klar medinischer Rauch im ersten Moment, aber begleitet von viel viel süßer Vanille. Gefällt mir schon auf den ersten Riecher viel besser als der Standard. Nach einer gewissen Zeit meine ich auch etwas Bittermandel, Marziplan, Karamel zu vernehmen. Etwas wie Nelke und Backvanille gehen mir auch nicht aus dem Sinn.


Geschmack: Sehr süß mit viel Karamel und braunem Zucker. Ein angenehmes Prickeln im Mundraum und planzliche Torfnoten und Schokolade machen sich im Mundraum breit. Ich hatte nie gedacht das ein Laphroaig so schmecken kann und bin überaus positiv überrascht! Torfnoten in Form von kalter Asche und viel Restsüße dominieren den Abgang.


Fazit: Ich weiß schon warum ich mir einen 10 CS kaufen musste.

Nose: Lovely lovely smoked honey barbecue sauce. Tad bit of ashy-ness. Just nice amount of sweetness lingering well with the peat smoke. A very harmonious nose! Burnt rubber, damped card box. Perfect combo. Some burnt tea leaves. Hint of clinic smell. After about 5 minutes, some Indian spices starting to appear. "Empty room smell". Very complex.

Palate: Oh that fat oily mouth feel. Smoke, ash, pretty sweet. Oh that sweet smoked honey barbecue sauce. Very medicinal. Very powerful palate. Perfect winter dram. Some very sweet prunes! Yummy!

Finish: Very smoky finish, some bitterness. Bitter oranges. That smoke just won't go away.

Balance: So much balance in the nose that you kind of forgotten it's a Laphroaig. The peat smoke and the sweetness combines perfectly and gives you that lovely savory nose. Then it continues on the palate, with that oily, peaty and powerful palate, and ends with a long lasting finish.

Final: This is not an easy whisky. Take your time to discover it. You may need to experiment a little bit to get the best out of this lovely Laphroaig.

Verdict: A complex and powerful Laphroaig, which requires patient to be able to enjoy it fully.

Nose

Nez plutôt douceâtre, pas violent, fin, sur la tourbe, l'iode, la terre, aussi les herbes médicinales, la gentiane, du bois, sirop pour la toux, plutôt sucré.

Taste

Bouche épaisse, crémeuse, bien tourbée, grosse explosion de parfum, très démonstratif. Pas la finesse d'un laga12 mais une superbe puissance aromatique. Touche de caramel, un peu d'iode, traces de fruits secs (noisette), et de chocolat noir, des plantes médicinales. Wouah wouah wouah superbe.

Finish

Finale très longue, tourbée, légèrement médicinale.

Comments

Peu complexe, mais l'alcool est très bien intégré et dégage une superbe puissance aromatique.
