  5. jjbings did not rate this whisky Member Senior

    • Nose
      In the nose he is surprisingly restrained. You notice the smoke, some wood and a heavy dark sweetness.
    • Taste
      The smoke from the peat fire and a heavy crisp sweetness from the Pedro Ximenez Sherry fight on the palate for supremacy. Full and intense. Over time, some components crystallize: medicated smoke, ripe fruit, sherry and a fine touch of leather and wood
    • Finish
      Even in the departure smoke and sherry continue to argue about who may stay now. Both components remain noticeable for a long time. Over time it gets drier but never bitter and the sherry lingers in the mouth for a very long time. Furthermore, wood and leather, which are more noticeable with decreasing smoke. Very long lasting

  7. Cubey666 scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    Nose: A nice combination of fruity PX sherry and peat and smoke. Also hints of wood and a bit malty. furniture wax is also present

    Taste: really sweet, together with the traditional laphroaig notes: iodine, seaweed, peatsmoke.

    Finish: lingering and charming

  10. 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.
