  1. detachedblue scored this whisky 93 points Connoisseur

    More Port Ellen than Laphroaig.
    • Nose
      Golden fruits, like Port Ellen and Caol Ila, sweet pure peated barley, not very modernish peat, crushed lemon, smoke bacon.
    • Taste
      Dense peat, leather, huge camphor, orange, barley sugar, oily, translucent.
    • Finish
      A touch of sulfur, but still very good, golden barley peat, very long finish.

    Tasted at Old and Rare 2020. Very close to 559, brilliant.

  3. Luigisim scored this whisky 93 points Connoisseur

    Would have been possible to replicate drams, this should have been one.
    Incredible balance of peat and sweet flavours.
    • Nose
      Fantastic sulfuric peat. Mild and gentle. Completely different (and better) from the peat character of today's drams.
    • Taste
      Demerara sugar, old rum melting with wild strawberries.
    • Finish
      Long and lingering but also delicate and tender.

    Laphroaig 30y 1966/1996, 48.9%, Signatory, cask 561, 142 bottles . Laphroaig 1966. Was it not especially 1967 that was a good year for Laphroaig? 1966, a bit of a weakness seems to me.
    Mmm, long live 1966! Man, what a great smell! An antique shop with its old books and polished antique furniture, dried flowers, ripe bananas, succulent honey, minerals (wet stone), oysters, tobacco and of course the most delicious soft sweet peat. Light tones of a cow stall. Enjoy in overdrive. The good news is that the taste should not be too much for the nose. Delicate, subtle and complex. Creamy peat encapsulated in honey, marzipan, beeswax and lots of fruit. Banana, orange and juicy pear. But that does not stop there, I also think of candied ginger, sweet licorice and a ham on the spit. Long aftertaste where the fruit and the beeswax slowly extinguish, but where the sweet peat will continue for a while afterwards. Fantastic whisky. 95/100 http://onversneden.com/2011/12/30/en-dan-was-er-nog-die-kersttasting/
