  1. lachaineduwhisky did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Doux, but I've been screwing around for a tourbe poivrée et de la gomme de pneu. Le malt settles down. Pluthot frais et herbacé.
    • Taste
      Tires to death! Spices and pepper dominate the roundness of the port.
    • Finish
      No major evolution.

      Enthusiasm 3/5

      Whisky n ° 1956

    Too ashy. Nothing else comes through. 55 points.

      Phew ... Phenolic smoke. Extreme. Slaying. Dry, snappy.

      Ash, smoke. Dry mud. A touch of strawberries.

      Long, too long. Bitter ash.

  3. Archer scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    Yes, a Laphroaig. But rather someone who looks as if he had been pressed through the barrel by a UA with a treat. The sweetness looks a bit fake, but still scratches the mark: just about works. Quite delicious, but not very "laphroa-like".

      Sweet and tart fruit, cloudy with haunted peat. Somewhat moldy, damp cellar, fermented fruit - in general: decay. Delicious. (Unsulphurised) raisins, dried figs. With time becoming more spicy (especially after a short covering of the glass) shows nutmeg, marjoram, chervil, thyme.
    • Taste
      85 85
      Meets the tongue with a heavy sweetness of blackberries, raisins, dried figs and grapes. Oily, strong smoke note with warm tar, seaweed and hospital corridor mist. Is pretty fat and sweet on the tongue, feels viscous. Men's chocolate, espresso beans, malt, burnt caramel.
    • Finish
      85 85
      Medium length, dry, smoky, spicy and sweet. The smoky note gains in intensity from behind, the spices pick up momentum again after a while, the fruit sweetness is permanently present.

  9. Dyno scored this whisky 82 points Expert Senior

    probably my least laphroaig experience to date. normally a huge fan of the distillery, but not this expression. It's a pity as i'd like to like it more :)

  10. Kensay scored this whisky 82 points Expert Senior

    Smoke, burnt pine, sea salt and iodine
    but there is no such variety in the mouth, spices and vanilla
    Aftertaste with bitterness and spices
    basic file without claims
