Whisky Reviews for Laphroaig 2005 CWC

1 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 87.14 points

  1. Gaija scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    Lacks a bit of purity and freshness imo ; on the other hand, at that age, alcohol is already well integrated. If you like your Laphroaig a bit sweet and vegetal, why not ; that's not especially my case.
    • Nose
      Phenolic, vegetal and sweet. Camphory most certainly, with some aromatic herbs and briny rubber.
    • Taste
      Same idea, quite some hessian and hemp ropes with camphor, sage, rosemary. Sweetly phenolic, not that smoky per se. Good alcohol integration.
    • Finish
      Long, on the same markers, with sweet camphor, green leaves and beach-y tones.
