  1. Coldorak scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    When "before" was "better"... Way better than the current Laphroaig 10. Would have been even better at 46% abv.
    • Nose
      86 86
      Very fruity nose, on mango and tropical fruits, with of course Islay peat, with medicinal and iodine notes.
    • Taste
      90 90
      Mango, pepper, tropical fruits once again, delicious peaty notes, olive oil and dried herbs. Syrupy mouthful.
    • Finish
      87 87
      Long, on peat and bandages.

    Exotic fruits on the nose plus a small scent of the peat. Nowhere near todays 10 year old.
    Peat gets stronger on the palate and in the finish. But the fruits remain in the background. Surprisingly long finish for the abv. Great bottling!

    Unfortunately one to forget about - I assume there are quite some variations with the bottlings
    • Nose
      74 74
      Overripe papaya (already a bit rotten), hints of vanilla, tropical fruits, cooked vegetables, cabbage, wet wood - not really pleasant
    • Taste
      78 78
      Little punchy, peppery, subtle sweetness, some fruitiness, spices, herbs, some vanilla notes
    • Finish
      71 71
      Medium long, warm, more herbs, quite bitter notes

  5. Baanaanaabob scored this whisky 91 points Connoisseur

    My bottle has code L00727 on the front label. not the modern medicinal style, some cooked tropical fruits in the background, pencil shavings, pepper, refined farmy smoke, excellent
