Whisky Reviews for Laphroaig 1998 CA

4 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 87.00 points

  1. 3_243F6 scored this whisky 87 points Expert Junior

    Good, but quite out of balance between cask and distillate.
    • Nose
      87 87
      Ice cream, slight honey, pepper, light peat. With a few drops of water, the distillate fights back a little better, revealing hints of light green fruits. I prefer the nose with water.
    • Taste
      87 87
      Very creamy - vanilla ice cream with honey. The peat is there but in the background, probably too far back. I wouldn't identify this as a Laphroaig on the palate alone.
    • Finish
      88 88
      Similar to the palate; an initial burst of ice cream and honey, accompanied by some pepper and light medicinal peat. Perhaps some salt.

    Nice Dram! Laphroaig style, seaweed, salt and peat - all there. I love it!
