  2. Bishlouk scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    I'm not a big fan of Laphroaig in general, but I must admit that I like it. It is complex, balanced, very mineral (and I like that!). Alcohol does not hurt.
    • Nose
      Vanilla ash smoke and some roasted coffee beans. Peat is powerful, very present. After aeration, dry hay smoke and traces of medicinal herbs with honey.
    • Taste
      Cold ashes invade the mouth. Vanilla too, herbs and flowing honeycombs. Creamy texture.
    • Finish
      Long. The smoke is immediately transformed into salty iodine. Ash remains ubiquitous in the background.
