11 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 87.70 points

  1. Lorion scored this whisky 60 points Expert Senior

    The whisky doesn't convince me, nor do I recognize the smoky character of Laphroaig. 60 points because the nose pleases.
    • Nose
      A bit stinging at first, but that quickly subsides when the nose has got used to the strength of the barrel. Smoke, first of all a lot of smoke. But there is much more to it than that. Yellow apple. Creamy batter. Apricot cake.

      Water: it becomes creamier, it becomes sweeter.
    • Taste
      Oops, here comes the ashes. And the fire. Then something does burn me and the ashes are too omnipresent for me. Charred citrus flavors are there.

      Water: Softer, yes. But still so incredibly ashy. And it gets a bit bitter.
    • Finish
      Medium length with persistent and bitter ash. Lemon peel.

  2. ASWhisky scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    Ranking 1st finish, 2nd mouth, 3rd nose
    • Nose
      Smoke, medical, a bit severe and young a lot of grain, in the medical smoke mixes a penetrating thin sweetness the bright fruit is not full-bodied and ripe I almost want to say alcoholic
    • Taste
      softer, a fruity complex body, beautiful chocolate, fruit, smoke, a little meditin, very pleasant, in the throat behind a little spicy, on the palate you can taste light rum
    • Finish
      long, chocolate, and cereals then comes sweet smoke and chewing tobacco sweet ash, very delicious the finish

  3. Archer scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    A successful Rumfass Vollreifung that does not give the impression of Vollreifung. The keg is not too dominant, with a nice sweep of oak on the tongue at the beginning. wlk 17-6
    • Nose
      Fresh, mentholiger smoke. Phenolic. Seaweed, algae. Warm tar. Green, not quite ripe fruits come. The alcohol stings something in the nose. It bizzles, then it's gone again. Smoked bacon is coming, still fruity. The smoke becomes milder, velvety, but does not disappear. The fruits, which were not described in detail at the beginning, become green apples and pears.
    • Taste
      Heavy smoke that floods the mouth with a sweep of oak (so early!) And herbs. He has a lot of turns. Candied apples and cinnamon rolls. Hui. There is still something lurking in the back which I can not yet identify exactly. At first I was on Islay, but I'm not so sure anymore. There is something, is it the Rumfass? Whipped raisins, maybe. He is quite harsh, although one can also sense traces of vanilla and honey. Over time, some chocolate and toffee.
    • Finish
      Medium long, dry and smoky. The fruits have been lost along the way. Still a good portion of oak

  4. Helgo scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    The nose is already dominated by the smoke with lots of citrus fruit, some salt, ash and light drizzle suits. However, only discreetly in the background. Still a bit hay and slightly grassy. In the mouth with full force and already oily, but also a lot of alcohol. Here's the tip to let him stand a little longer. The smoke is always present and it follows the tropical fruits and a grassy character. Then push some oak and wood. The finish is then dry and ashy. Some citrus remains on the palate. A nice Rumvollreifung. This is a completely different Laphroaig and for me the best maturing on the market.

  5. fritzbrause scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    everything you expect from this combination. wonderful sweet rum aromas in the nose paired with typical iodine smoke and salt from laphroaig. i can take the whole evening just nosing this whisky. on the palate you will not be disappointed. it was a not too dry rum cask, so you receive a subtle sweetness very well balanced with well aged laphroaig medical and smoke aromas. the finish is long and peaty. this gem was bottled at absolute perfect age from my opppinion. you got a very well balanced dram with all the best of laphroaig and the rum cask.

  6. Kantenmechaniker scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    Neat. Those who like rum barrel will get their money's worth here. Definitely something for sweet tooth, very cute.
    • Nose
      Jepp, rum, quite clearly, with a well-fitting smoke, but the rum is already dominant, molasses, sweet, coconut, grated lemon peel, sweet grapefruit, that's where the Laphroaig comes through, some cinnamon comes with the smoke, tobacco, a bit more mature Apple, vanilla
    • Taste
      creamy, oily, sweet, smoke, very sweet, coconut, molasses, cinnamon, sweet apple, rum hold, here very rumlastig and little space for Laphroaig, apart from the smoke of course, some dark chocolate, only hinted at on the palate, drinks quite well
    • Finish
      Vanilla, salt, sour, slightly tart, citrus, the smoke becomes less, the sweetness also decreases, the mouth is full, dry

  7. Tom na Gruagaich scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    A sweet, mild Laphroaig, with a few more fruit notes than usual. Concrete Rumaroma I did not notice. Good whisky.

  8. Albaron scored this whisky 88 points Specialist

    A delicious whisky that somehow reminds me of a Kilchoman, Just like cooking a Kilchoman 100% Islay in a rum barrel, it's very fruity and the smoke is perfect. Probably a Laphroaig or possibly a Caol Ila, but rather Laphroaig, because the smoke is phenolic as in Laphroaig.
    Notes from a blind tasting
    • Nose
      Smoky, slightly phenolic, slightly sour, astringent, menthol, citrus, some star fruit, mineral notes with a hint of salt
    • Taste
      some malt in the background, then the ethereal sour, the smoke, menthol and citrus and some vanilla and the star fruit is back, even a hint of banana and the finish also a bit bitter
    • Finish
      the smoke stops, but the lemon stays and also some oak tannins come over. The banana is always in the background to notice, in addition to ashes

  9. Dieter_W scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    A cheeky, fresh, fruity Laphi from the rum pot, er barrel. My tip was, one from Islay. Had rather typed a Caol Ila For me he was blind not necessarily recognizable as Laphi.
    • Nose
      Start with blind tasting Beautiful fruity quailmer! Many bright unripe fruits. Mandarins, green bananas, sweet and sour lemon zest. The smoke is very dominant
    • Taste
      The fruitiness and smoke also continued in the mouth. A sour apple and the sweet pear stand opposite each other. Smoke and alcohol are also inferior. But the smoke is ahead. Not bad for 54.9%.
    • Finish
      That comes out long and sweet and very smoking behind what.
