- Without water, this whisky is smooth, and it's 57,5%. If you put water in it, it becomes completely different, and I like it!!
Neat: Surprisingly smooth and so little peaty notes, weird for a Laphroaig. Water: With water it feels diluted...
Neat: It's a nice peaty attack, lots of coal and bonfire.Water: Not as strong anymore, but the sweetness is coming on strong.
Neat: The finish is so long and wonderful. Water: With water it just taste diluted.
- Even by Laphroag's standards, this Philo Raga is very peaty and smoky. Yet more complex than the quarter cask or the ob 10.
Powerfull. Very strong tarry and peat and coal smoke on the nose
Peat smoke in extreme. Marine flavours, nutty pepper. Lemon, ash and very phenolic.
Cocoa, sweet fudge, then later turning into ash. Barbecue?
- Don't put water in it.
A lot of vanilla like first fill bourbon. Some mint and butter. With water the nose is much less then without.
Great! Its a bit extreme on the peat. Less round then the nose. Also less vanilla then expected.
With water its unusual, looks like the peat is gone and the lemon takes over.
Rather long with the lemon still in it. Good finish!
- Good and typical Laphroaig but nothing spectacular.
Powerful, peaty (medicinal, ash) and lemony.
Bold, peaty and warming. Medicinal and lots of ash. Nicely lemoned and peppery. Very pleasant and satisfying for peat freaks like me.
Long peaty (tar) and slightly drying.
