13 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 84.90 points

  1. schengel10 scored this whisky 79 points Connoisseur

    A decent malt for a good price - an ideal travel retail combination. More intense than the 10 year old, but not the level of the Quarter Cask!
    • Nose
      phenolic smoke, tar, iodine, salt, distinct sweetness;
    • Taste
      a powerful onset, dry, salt, superimposed smoke, present sweetness (PX-Sherry?), cold ashes, tobacco; maritime, intense but also clearly young;
    • Finish
      good medium length finish with smoke, oak, sweetness;

  2. LeChiffre scored this whisky 79 points Expert Senior

    The peaty medico-smoky note does not quite match my taste of a smoky malt. Otherwise pretty sweet and spicy, but somehow that is missing something.
    • Nose
      80 80
      medical smoky note; behind it fruity sweetness (dried fruit); maritime notes; beautiful combination of smoke and sweetness
    • Taste
      80 80
      surprisingly mild and soft for 48%; earthy peaty; smoky; spicy oak; to a slight sweetness
    • Finish
      78 78
      stronger in the finish; dry; medical and smoky; sweet and spicy; Tart oak flavors come to the fore

    The smell of one of my favorite Laphroaig. In addition, with 48% the perfect drinking strength. The taste is also very appealing, only this slightly put on, artificial sweetness bothers me a bit. If you like Laphroaig, this whisky will surely please you. Is also slightly more complex, softer and rounder due to the sherry cask storage. Value for money is ok.

    Those who know me know that I love peaty whisky while others prefer the sweeter, softer drams. But this peaty PX Cask is something for both. The balance is perfect and the sweetness makes the coal pit, ash and tar taste heavenly. Funny but true ;-)
    • Nose
      First comes the sweetness, followed by the traditional smoke and peat that Laphroaig is known for. There are notes of raisins, algae and nuts. A wonderful balance in the nose between the peaty Laphroaig notes and the sherry sweetness.
    • Taste
      This dram is something special. A mixture of different tastes. There is smoke, Christmas cake, oak, algae, peat and tar mixed with the hints of a coal mine and some ashes. A bit of sharpness comes out between the sweet wine notes. The sweetness is not overwhelming, but not so that it goes down in the peat. He has a wonderful balance. A drop of water brings more of the fruity sweetness and smooths the peaty notes. But you have to be economical with the water.
    • Finish
      Long and persistent with tar, oak, spice and ending in fruity sweet tones. An amazing dram.

    • Nose
      The classic Laphroaig peaty smoke and a very refind and elegant sweet nose.
    • Taste
      Smooth and pepper spicy with a subtle sherry sweetness. Very rich when I compare it with the other NAS Laphroaig's I recently tried.
    • Finish
      Good bourbon oak finish.
