Whisky Reviews for Laphroaig 1990 DR

1 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 89.13 points

  1. magic_slim scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    Recommended, elegant Laphroaig without any fault.
    • Nose
      Completely different from the Scotch Single Malt Circle Laphroaig (Cask #630) that I tasted immediately before. This one is much more elegant and not so wild. It is obvious that it is much older and more balanced although I slightly prefer the power and wildness of the SSMC bottling.
      Back to the nose - There is delicate peat, leather, marzipan and wet stones. Some lemon flavor is present as well.
    • Taste
      Warming with peaty notes, green tea and lemon. There are still some leathery and marzipan notes, also Banana, which are quite untypical for Laphroaig. Well balanced and very very tasty.
    • Finish
      Long, peaty and satisfying, slightly salty and absolutely pleasant.
