- Despite NAS a really good Laphi for a very fair price - a Best Buy!
strong cold smoke (ham), ashes, clearly iodine, oak, sweetness;
fiery spicy, strong voluminous onset, oranges, lots of smoke, salt, sweetness, spicy oak;
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!
- 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
On the nose rather med. Smoke but not dissuasive.
If fruits, then for me more lemon, minimum vanilla.
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.
- Nothing Special!
- A successful drum that I like to drink again and again
A very fine but still present smoky note followed by a slight medicinal and iodic taste. Also a slight vanilla sweetness noticeable.
The smoky note dominates the palate and also the alcohol makes itself felt. A light malty sweetness joins the smoke
The finish is long and above all smoky. A residual sweetness is always present
- Laphroaig starter. I place him along the standard 10y
Slightly smoky, salty, little vanilla
Zilt, Citrus, Medicinal
Peppery, spicey, light-colored
