Whisky Reviews for Laphroaig 30-year-old Càirdeas

4 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 93.36 points

  1. Thermidor scored this whisky 91 points Expert Senior

    A delicious, complex dram that is maybe a bit less well integrated than the 2015 32yo, and similar in quality to the 2016 30yo. Undeniably great, but I would not pay the current going price for a bottle. IMHO this is a much better whisky than its WF score suggests, but not quite as good as the WB average does either.

    Thanks to WB member Mr. Sandwich for the sample!
    • Nose
      Ahh, sal-ammoniac, my old friend. How I like it when you are present in a peaty whisky! Some leather, and greasy, oily bits. Sourdough bread, and soft touches of varnish. Appealing, enchanting even, but an odd dryness hangs about I can't pin down.
    • Taste
      The body is a bit lackluster at first but comes together nicely after the tongue has drawn in enough peat. Wonderfully round now, with a present, oily peatiness and BBQ sauce, and some touches of red wine and taffy. Sal-ammoniac comes in after a moment, as well as noticeable sooty ashiness. Works well for me.
    • Finish
      Drying. A mix of ashy sherry notes and sal-ammoniac. A bourbony sweetness in the tail.

  2. RL_whisky scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    Slightly different than I expected. On the nose the peat was well present. On the taste it was practically gone, but in the finish it was there again. Very nice indeed.
