17 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 84.24 points

  1. WhiskyLovingPianist scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    N: Smoke, glycerine, pickled onions [silver skin] and flour dumplings to start. This is very low on the medicinal bandages, almost no TCP - although an place instead is a little turps, a touch of white spirit, a hot red soldering iron and lots of iron fillings. Of cooked but cold meats it's between chicken or cubed lamb with some 'erbs!
    T: It’s relatively spirity and youthful. You can see what another 15 years can do if you happen to have a bottle of 25yo Caol Ila lying around - well, it is my birthday. Some Bandages appear later, lightly doused.
    F: The smoke is big but it doesn’t swamp the finishing complexities.
    C: It’s been a while since i had this classic. I see it rapidly being replaced in many pubs by the ‘Select’, and lots of the customers aren’t noticing at all. All fool them then - more of the good stuff for those that do.

    Can't judge this, because I am not one for the overload of peat and smoke.
    • Nose
      Hospital, peat, smoke and plasters. A bit of rubber perhaps and somewhere a bit of spice.
    • Taste
      Pungent alcohol, strong flavours and very powerful.

  5. schengel10 scored this whisky 77 points Connoisseur

    The "real" starter in the smoky Laphi world!
    Very smoky - slightly spicy in the mouth (40%) - an interesting, neat, inexpensive Islay Malt!
    • Nose
      strong, phenolic smoke; sweet pears, lemons, delicate vanilla;
    • Taste
      intense onset, smoke increases significantly, in the mouth almost watery, mild, soft, fruity, malty, sweet, vanilla;
    • Finish
      long, oily finish; slight spiciness and smoke fade away;

  6. Dris scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    The epiphany of a session dram.
    • Nose
      85 85
      phenolic with sweet malt backbone.
    • Taste
      84 84
      watery body, dry phenolic notes, resinous wood
    • Finish
      85 85
      medium, salty and ashy, with a touch of honeysuckle

  7. Danny1968 scored this whisky 84 points Member Senior

    The smoke from this peat [which is only present on Islay] gives Laphroaig a special taste. With lots of smoke, seaweed and a touch of sweetness.
