  1. Donwaldorf scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Blown away by his fasting age, I find him well done and well marked. A beautiful discovery ... Back to the future ...
    • Nose
      Farm peat and mineral very pronounced despite its young age. This one is accompanied by a hint of lemon.
    • Taste
      Attack light and pleasant despite its 50%, Alcohol well integrated. We are always on the peat more spicy and medicinal.
    • Finish
      Long saline on smoked meat.

    It's rare to see the Laphie so young! Enthusiasm 3/5 Whisky n ° 1263
    Tasted (and identified!) Blind
    • Nose
      Peat very frank, ashen, like a Caol Ila on steroids. Light lemony touch
    • Taste
      Something medicinal typical of Laphroaig, it attacks strongly and it ends fluid, almost thin.
    • Finish
      Ultra long on the ash

    It’s unofficially official - this is teaspoon-ed Laphroaig.

    N: A pea sweetness, iron railings - mild overall,..
    T: Iron peat. The peat grows with a dry oiliness.
    F: .,,, as does the sweet barley vegetal.
    C: A grower, if not a shower.Scores a B-

    Great malt, probably quite young but still set and good in balance. Tap Islay's northwest. Notes from a blind tasting. Look at one, for Laphroaig he is in my opinion rather untypical, but that makes absolutely nothing, he is delicious!
    • Nose
      Coal fire, some chemical burn, dark caramel and then the pears could be. The smoke profile remains dominant and only slightly changes the character towards the campfire. The pears turn into ripe quince and mirabelle plums, a greasy smoke makes your appetite pretty salty. Now and then the alcohol tickles slightly in the nose. Heats up a decent load of disinfectant and furniture polish, more chemically the whole, including iodine. Only very late does the nose fade out the smoke so far that a nice conglomerate results, sweet black honey on grilled meat at the coal fire in a moist granite cave.
    • Taste
      Very smooth, but powerful start, also a lot of coal dust on the tongue. In addition to tasty caramel and honey, the mouthfeel is light, to the back he is quite salty, oak I can find late, I suspect that the majority of bitterness in the back comes more from the youth, an idea tin seems to be there too.
    • Finish
      The finish is actually quite short, the sweetness is gone very quickly, not even the ashes on the tongue lasts for a long time. He also warms his throat for a moment. After the third sip, the ashes remain a little longer.

  7. chrizthewiz scored this whisky 86 points Expert Junior

    Big salty and maritime tang, road tar, peat blast and sherried sweetness. A straight and simple young Laphroaig. A bit pricey for a 50cl bottle but you gotta love the label if you're a kid of the 80's (like me). I would say its almost the same juice as ileach cask strength (compared to my open bottle) but slightly reduced by strength. Solid dram!
