    Despite NAS a really good Laphi for a very fair price - a Best Buy!

      strong cold smoke (ham), ashes, clearly iodine, oak, sweetness;
    • Taste
      fiery spicy, strong voluminous onset, oranges, lots of smoke, salt, sweetness, spicy oak;
    • Finish
      aromatic, long finish, spice, smoke and ash gradually fade away;

    This Laphroaig bottling has got a very promising nose, exactly what you would like from a 30 euro standard bottling from this distillery. But then the palate, we do have a slight problem with that. It is so short that you need directly a next sip to actually enjoy it. A good way to sell more of your spirit probably, as the bottle empties fast. Anyway, a few years more in the quarter casks, which now supposedly is about 8 months, and I think it would have a really good whisky.

      The first noticeable impressions involve ashes, seaweed and bandages together with a few drops of lime juice. The smoke has indeed a “Laphroaiginess” that swirls around coal, bandages, cigarette ashes, lemon skin, and lime and orange juice. A hint of tequila in the background, and some herbal notes, which I cannot directly pin down. It gets sweeter and fruitier with the addition of some grapefruit, orange-flavoured sweets, and honey. Very pleasant and a full-filling nose for this youngster.

      Licking an cigarette ash tray, then coal dust, a drop of lime juice, maybe also orange juice. The iodine, seaweed and bandages stay rather in the background. and come forward a little later. However, the development is really short. Whoosh, and the ashy gust is gone. Too bad, I was really enjoying this!

      Short.

    I'm not a fan of the real smoker.
    Especially not when they are younger. But I try to evaluate neutral. One of the classics. I have to take it seriously. Let's go.
    PS. For smoke lovers price performance one of the insider tips
    • Nose
      85 85
      On the nose rather med. Smoke but not dissuasive.
      If fruits, then for me more lemon, minimum vanilla.
    • Taste
      86 86
      Can that be salty? Clear lemon and the smoke covers the rest with me. Not unpleasant. No. Perfectly OK.
      The 48% push on it. Boom.

      The flavors stay hidden behind the smoke but are relatively pleasant. Just in the middle. Good standard. Must give the ordinary grades. Clearly.

    A successful drum that I like to drink again and again
    • Nose
      A very fine but still present smoky note followed by a slight medicinal and iodic taste. Also a slight vanilla sweetness noticeable.
    • Taste
      The smoky note dominates the palate and also the alcohol makes itself felt. A light malty sweetness joins the smoke
    • Finish
      The finish is long and above all smoky. A residual sweetness is always present
