  1. whiskycuse did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Tasting Notes: Nose: I have to say that I could have thought this whisky was a rum if I had it covered. For indeed he has a rum note, as I had never experienced in the intensity of a whisky and the Laphroaig character completely covered! Only after a while is a slight smokiness to perceive, as well as roasted malt and a fine citrus note. With a bit of water, this is a little more differentiated, pears, baked bread, heather and earthy and slightly kräutrige impressions. Nevertheless, he remains sweet, pappig and covered by the rum.
    Mouth: Very sweet and enormously powerful, again rather rum than whisky, sugary, completely covering the smoky notes, even though a certain maritimeity can be penetrated with some sea air and tang. He does not lose his sweetness even with a lot of water, remains sticky, but now also with some heather and earthy tones.
    Finish: Long, sweet, sticky, slightly ashen, but without obvious Laphroaig.
    Conclusion: I am quite divided into two, when it comes to this whisky (or should I rather say rum?) Rate. I say, I really liked this drink, it is tasty, sweet and round, simple, pleasing but tasty. But with Laphroaig this has not much to do, since the rum so hovers over everything that the whisky could have been pretty much anything in it. As a drink so quite delicious, as Laphroaig complete failed! https://whiskycuse.wordpress.com/

    I can convince this Laphroaig, as he delivers what I hope for a Laphroaig from the rum barrel. On the nose, the whisky provides distinct exotic rum aromas paired with lots of sweet vanilla and a pleasant typical Laphroaig smoke. Although this is rather restrained, but the whisky does not hurt, but leads to a complex and very harmonious overall picture. The tasting and finish are a bit tart and smoky. However, the sweet exotic rum still shows up here. Fans of whiskys with a pronounced rum influence will not be disappointed with this malt.
    • Nose
      -sweet sweet rum brings exotic fruit notes, lots of warm vanilla notes and harmoniously integrated Laphroaig-typical smoldering smoky notes, Vla with pineapple pieces, papaya, mango and some lime juice, wine gum-apple rings. Again and again salty-maritime notes penetrate (fresh oysters with lemon), grilled mashmallows, fruit salad with vanilla sauce, tiramisu, vanilla rooibos tea, but also earthy notes of smoke and charred root wood come to light after some time
      -some caramel, grilled salmon with a sweet lime-yoghurt sauce, mirabelle plums, vanilla scented candles, coconut ice-cream, and after a while, a light spicy oak can stand up to the smoke and sweet rum, lemon drops
    • Taste
      Somewhat smoldering smoke, a variety of exotic fruits (pineapple, mango, sweet citrus fruits), German milk chocolate, some caramel, ginger, pineapple peel, dark bitter forest honey
    • Finish
      dry smoke, earthy notes, dry moss, sweet citrus fruit, pineapple with bitter-bitter skin, some ashes, at the end remains an exotic sweetness, white chocolate and earthy smoke
