  1. Greenkeeper scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    Additional Note: One of the few (!) Laphroaig whiskys that benefits strongly and uniquely from oxidation.
    Now that my bottle is nearly empty after several months, the initially nondescript flat nose has given way to a more complex, complex impression of all the typical Laphroaig elements with the added thrust of typical PX-Fass impressions. Very much and definitely better!

    Even in taste, the filling has gained by months of oxidation clear, if not as clear as in the nose. It should be emphasized that the filling did not lose the least amount of smoke and the associated taste enjoyment (I use Vacuvin seals and vacuum every 2 weeks).

    I have to increase my score by at least one, no, if I think about it even two points (to 87). So clear is the difference. After the bottling is now also offered at reasonable prices at many shops, it is almost a recommendation again.

  2. Apprentice6004 scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    This is one of my favorite Laphroaig's, value is great and it has an extraordinary balance.
    • Nose
      very deep, in the glass it smells all over the dining room, tobacco, peat, vanilla, orange, laurel, almond
    • Taste
      tobacco, honey, brown sugar, pepper, liquorice, delicate
    • Finish
      pleasant, warm, long

    very my organoleptic profile, for the first price you can safely take the box into the hole
    • Nose
      90 90
      the first 5 minutes it’s quite closed, which is generally a common thing for many molts (as we know whisky does not like hustle and bustle :)), but subsequently it begins to unfold, in addition to the standard favorite scheme peat + sherry with branded Lafroig tar and a medic, you can safely add some refreshing mint and plum-grape pie
    • Taste
      88 88
      a pleasant continuation of the aroma, but a little lacking in body and power, despite the fact that the fortress is 48%, it’s not so frisky, although it’s still pretty decent and very tasty, but as for the Junior release it’s more than decent, plus the echoes of burnt firewood are added and some dryness
    • Finish
      88 88
      a continuation of the taste, but firewood is a little more prominent against the background of everything else, quite long

    If you want to taste real Laphroaig, go for cask strength
