Whisky Reviews for Laphroaig 1999 SMWS 29.199

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 88.45 points

  1. mandragoru did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    SMWS tasting notes:

    A surprisingly tame nose greeted the Panel, like a pick ‘n’ mix with acid drops, jelly beans, barley sugar, flying saucers, sherbet straws, aniseed balls and bubble-gum millions with someone also dipping a quill into an ink well. On the palate neat; quite punchy, plenty of smoke, salt, liquorice and pepper with a maritime/lemony tang in the finish. A drop of water and still not much in the way of smoke on the nose; antiseptic cream, UV marker pens and refilling a long nozzle gas firelighter. Flavour of smoke still very much apparent but now more in terms of burning heather and burnt toast with salted butter.

    DRINKING TIP: Overcoming a writer’s block when text messaging or tweeting
