Whisky Reviews for Laphroaig 18-year-old

  1. Izzino scored this whisky 95 points Expert Senior

    Well barance Beautifull whisky.

  2. Moses scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    First of all said one of the best 18s I own. This velvety delicate despite plenty of alcohol is very special. The sea air nose and the taste of salty, sweet, fruity to smoky, everything there, ... fantastic. House whisky.

      Very special is the combination of fresh sea breeze with nutty chocolate notes. Everything also makes a very set impression. With peaty maltiness, sweet candies and spicy but wonderfully subtle smoke.

      Everything in the middle weight class but wonderfully creamy. With leathery smoke and always sweet with bitter notes, but not disturbing. Fruity and floral rather graßig with earthy ash. It still salty caramel with citrus notes. A poem.

      Very tender, soft and still long. Peppery with a metallic finish but not too bitter. Very special and always sweet.Longer that should not work. Sorry, but we both do not get together. I think you should be a real Bruichladdich fan to understand this malt.
