Whisky Reviews for Laphroaig 1998

  1. ak47 did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Sadly the Cask is empty!

  2. Kantenmechaniker scored this whisky 91 points Connoisseur

    First I tasted it at Warehousetasting 2016 and bottled it directly. I wrote the notes 2 years later now. For me by far the best of the three Warehouse Laphis at the time.
    • Nose
      A great aroma, full of fresh sherry notes, raisins, red fruit, fruit compote, the smoke is quite strong back in the nose, with time comes hazelnuts and some old leather, and again and again a fresh red fruit with a slightly brusky touch, in short freshly cut pineapple, after the first sip also some caramel
    • Taste
      full-bodied, wow, full load of sherry, now really dark fruits, fat, in combination with noticeable smoke, very yummy, nice and intense, but also good oak, slightly tart, spicy and leathery
    • Finish
      The dark fruits hold up wacker against the drying smoke, rather slightly sour than sweet. The mouth is full of taste, very long lasting

  3. EckoVicto scored this whisky 90 points Expert Junior

    Still some left, but you can no longer use the valinch but have to sample from some full size bottles

  4. Owidram scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    Stunning Sherried Laphroaig with some good aging.

    We also tasted a barrel of Bourbon, which I liked a lot, and a quarter cask, less my choice, more bitter.

    This was the one to take away, very living, very laphroaish.

    Huge thanks to the folks at the distillery, visiting Laphroaig is always an interesting experience and I'm still learning any time I visit again.
