Whisky Reviews for Laphroaig 1983 McC

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 87.67 points

  1. hs305 scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    [July, 2015]  Serge rated this with 75 points only, unfortunately he provided no notes...  That's why I tried it myself today and I found it a very unusual, interesting Laphroaig.  So if you are open to try something different to the classic Laphroaig profile this is a very pleasant dram indeed.

    There are huge amounts of caramelized vanilla fudge aromas in both nose and taste, imbedded in a very sweet barley corpus.  After a while the Laphroaig will shine through with its peaty/medicinal flavours making up for a huge body profile.  But than the vanilla and sweet barley take over again for the finish, which is unfortunately not very long (but nice).

    Altogether a nice dram to sip after dinner, but certainly not very suited for the hardcore Laphies...  All others should give it a try!
