Whisky Reviews for Laphroaig 2001 Arc

5 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 88.00 points

  1. Andytka3 scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    N- Firm malt with penetrating sourish citrus, love the joyful nose melting (almost) effect that hard to come by. Vanilla cake, basket full of berries and cut juicy pineapple. Nutmeg powder and burn carton smokes underlay. (92/23)

    P- Elegant and well texture. Pleasantly sweet and briny, soft sea notes sphere on the juicy honey infused with charred lemon peel. Somehow short on width. (91/22)

    F- Medium, lack of layers, direct, simple with juicy sweet balanced with calm ripples of shell's smokes. (87/21)

    Body / Balance- 88/22

  5. Dirk scored this whisky 88 points Super Administrator

    Very clean and straightforward, no rough edges but also not a big punch in the face. I like it for the citric aspects and peat layer underneath. Delicate would not do justice to this whisky, I would say rather refined. A rather weird combination of flavours while reading my notes again but it works.

      Citrus, briny, leafy, wet rope. Subtle nose, a peaty layer that surrounds all the other flavours. A bit metallic and some grapefruits.

      Sweeter then I expected from the nose, subtle peat, honey, briny, mineral, green leafs. Somewhat herbal, green olives. Grapefruits and melon.

      Wow quite expressive on the finish, briny, peat. A long finish, but just a part to strong on the alcohol.
