Serge V says:

Laphroaig 10 yo 'Cask Strength' (57.8%, OB, batch #001- FEB.09) Star4.5.jpg These new ‘small batch’ editions will replace our beloved ‘10CS’. Hope the quality won’t be replaced! Colour: pale gold. Nose: holy smokes! This one smells just like an ashtray full of lit Habanos at first nosing. It seems that it’s rather more extreme in its smokiness than the earlier batches, less fruity too. Also a lot of leather and notes of ‘new tyres’ that remind me of some PEs. Not really medicinal, that is, even if there are whiffs of antiseptic. Fresh walnuts. Spectacular whisky! With water: smoke, smoke and smoke, of all kinds. And cigars, and leather. Also a little earthy. Mouth (neat): extremely punchy, fruitier than on the nose when neat (ripe apples), very peaty, clean… Once again, the smokiness is quite extreme, a little Supernova-esque. With water: much more on earth and roots, gentian, a little aniseed, salt, badian… Finish: very long, distinctly salty. Quite ashy in the aftertaste. Comments: rather less fruity and balanced/complex than earlier ‘regular’ batches but smokier and ashier. Yes, even more for peat heads. Extreme but very, very good. SGP:258 - 89 points.

Looking for an empty tube of this one. I'm willing to give samples or other tubes in exchange.

Laphroaig 10 Jahre CS Batch 1, Originalabfüllung; 57,8% alc.
Region: Islay, Schottland

Nase: Ein schöner Torfrauch, der einem entgegen springt. Kräftig, aber nicht erschlagend. Der Rauch kommt mit medizinischem Jod und Lagerfeuer, etwas Holzkohle und Salz, entfernt Algen. Dahinter dann aber gleich eine harmonische Süße, einerseits cremige Vanille, andererseits Pfirsich und andere eher helle Früchte. Diese dann aber im Müsli mit Cerealien.

Gaumen: Rauchig, mineralisch, leichte Bitternoten, Würze vom Holz, der Alkohol deutlich spürbar. Die Süße aus der Nase kommt eher mit Karamell und Toffee.

Abgang: Sehr rauchig, enorm lang und bis zum kleinen Zeh wärmend. Etwas Honigsüße, ansonsten viel Rauch.

Fazit: Wasser verträgt er nicht wirklich, daher rate ich zum Genießen in Fassstärke. Auf jeden Fall ein heftiger und sehr guter Laphi. Die Nase zwar komplex, aber leider deutlich weniger rauchig als erhofft. Der Abgang macht dies dann wieder wett.

89/100 Punkte (verkostet 2014, ca. 200,00 €)

Color
Pale gold
Nose

Camphre, coquille d’huitre, iode, citron. C’est fin, ciselé, assez et mine de rien relativement complexe.

Taste

L’attaque est sur les fruits : fruits jaunes et citrons. Puis, une tourbe typiquement Laph prend le pas. Avec en prime, des épices, du sel et du poivre.

Finish

Longue sur les algues, l’eau de mer…

Comments

Une très jolie expression de Laphroaig. Les 58% sont superbement intégrés.

bold whisky with strong flavours, all about peat, smoke, herbs, coastal notes and all balanced very well with the pronounced barley sugar sweetness
