    Enthusiasm 5/5 This is a beautiful whisky No. 1250!
    • Nose
      Seaweed, generous ripe fruit (baked apples), vanilla, pastry malt with a note of almonds
    • Taste
      Everything is here ! Generosity, intensity, breadth, stature, texture, spices, honey ...
    • Finish
      Sweet and intense, sparkling with spices. Long on the smoke!

    Notes by producer;

    Lp6 is one for Islay fans who like their whiskies dry and lean, with more emphasis on peat and smoke than fruit. This bottling is from the late 1990s, and was matured in a quartet of ex-bourbon barrels.

    Cask details;
    Four 1998 bourbon barrels.

    Tasting Notes;

    A multitude of aromas here: medicine, brine, black pepper and smoke. Slightly austere and challenging.

    Tropical fruit arrives in the form of mango and pineapple, with some lemon zest, big peat and smoke. Still on the lean side, then vanilla adds richness. Adding water ramps up the fruitiness.

    Long and lingering, with a dry, smoky edge and a touch of vanilla.

  3. Archer scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    Only on the tongue does he show that he is a Laphroaig. Well done, but with a comparable original bottling, eg 10 CS, just barely keep up.
    • Nose
      A reserved, mildly smoky nose. A hint of phenol, only a little. Sea salt and washed-up, sun-dried algae. Lime as a fruit note.
    • Taste
      On the tongue it shows up as a classic Laphroaig with strong peat smoke, licorice, glowing asphalt and sea salt. Beautiful fruit note with citrus fruits. After a while comes dark chocolate and vanilla.
    • Finish
      Long, smoky, salty, drying to the end.
