  1. ASWhisky scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    a very idiosyncratic tension-loaded Laphroaig
    I feel it as warm spicy and erotic

    88 out of 100 points
    mmh, I like them indeed
    • Nose
      soft weakly smoked ham
      cold wood ash
      Medical phenols
      Herbs and vanilla

      today: still cherries °° Strong intense aromas
      Medical smoke remains
    • Taste
      Soft in the beginning
      with smoke, chocolate and fruit
      unfolds then ashen spicy sharpness
      Becomes slightly medically numbing on the palate
      bitter ash residues and herbs spread in the mouth
    • Finish
      Slightly bitter
      Spicy medicine
      apple barrel
      Sweet tobacco
      Somewhat bitter smoke with sweet warm fruit

    I especially appreciate the notes of red fruits in this Laphroaig.

  4. peatbogger scored this whisky 91 points Specialist

    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.

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

  6. lapinbilly did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    The empty glass breathes ash and mineral peat. Batches 006 and 007 tasted and excellent!
    • Nose
      The nose is peaty, malty, a little iodine, ash, with 2-3 drops of water, peppermint.
    • Taste
      On the palate it's punchy! Peat is thick, iodine, medicinal plants, lemon, but still not aggressive, flavors explode literally it's impressive!
    • Finish
      The finish is long, peaty, sweet, very pleasant.

  7. magic_slim scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

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

  8. Vince' scored this whisky 90 points Expert Junior

    Nose: Clear median smoke at first, but accompanied by a lot of sweet vanilla. I like the first thing much better than the standard. After a while I also feel like bitter almond, marzipan, caramel. Something like carnation and vanilla do not go out of my mind.
    Taste: Very sweet with a lot of caramel and brown sugar. A pleasant tingle in the mouth and planzliche peat notes and chocolate make in the mouth wide. I had never thought that a Laphroaig can taste that way and am extremely pleasantly surprised! Peat notes in the form of cold ash and lots of residual sweetness dominate the finish.

    Conclusion: I already know why I had to buy a 10 CS.

  9. Ivynor scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    Not very complex, but the alcohol is very well integrated and gives off a superb aromatic power.
    • Nose
      Nose rather sweetish, not violent, fine, on peat, iodine, earth, also medicinal herbs, gentian, wood, syrup for cough, rather sweet.
    • Taste
      Mouth thick, creamy, well peated, big explosion of perfume, very demonstrative. Not the finesse of a laga12 but a superb aromatic power. Touch of caramel, a little iodine, traces of dried fruits (hazelnut), and dark chocolate, medicinal plants. Wow wow wow.
    • Finish
      Final very long, peaty, slightly medicinal.
