  1. ThinLizzy scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    A very nice and rather clean Laphroaig. The benefit of a very good spirit, a (probably) refill cask and just about the right timing to bottle...:-)

    Laphroaig 17 yo 1998/2015 (56.2%, Cadenhead, Authentic Collection, bourbon hogshead, 192 bottles) Four stars Colour: white wine. Nose: this one’s a tad more buttery and sour at first nosing, fatter as well. More sawdust. But the coastal side is soon to take over, with kelp and sea water, not to mention oysters. Damp earth. With water: carbon paper, seawater, seashells, paraffin, linseed oil. What’s not to like? Mouth (neat): kirsch, almonds, marzipan, and salted slivovitz. That’s spectacular and, in my opinion, very good. One of the rare Scotch whiskies that are kind of close to artisan mezcal or white agricole rum (or better yet, clairin). With water: very good. Salty oils, kippers, a slice of lemon, some brine, ashes, smoked water. Finish: long, appropriately bitter, smoky, ashy, and salty. And almondy. Comments: almost perfect, just a notch simpler than earlier vintages, as far as I can tell. SGP:557 - 87 points.

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