Whisky Reviews for Laphroaig 1998 Bs

    [June, 2017]  Another dram from the DFDS Exclusive Collection selected by the folks of danish Braunstein distillery.

    The colour is pale straw and the texture shows fast legs and tears.  The nose is extremely vanilla-driven with a full load of phenols, rather two-dimensional but quite nice dimensions.  It arrives in the mouth warming, peppery and a little coating with some adstringent moments (cold metals and ashes).  The taste is sweet and peaty again, this time the phenols win the battle.  And the finish is rather long and gets a little bitter from heavy tannins.  Some water increases the adstringent and bitter flavours (I do not like that) and more water flattens the dram (but take away the unpleasant notes).  Nevertheless I like it best when neat.

    An okayish Laphroaig, but certainly there are better ones out there...
