Laphroaig 18yo was introduced in 2009 as a replacement for the old 15 year-old (Prince Chuck's sorely missed favourite whisky, lest we forget). This is a stronger, altogether gutsier affair at 48%. A category winner at the World Whisky Awards 2010.

    This is my first time trying an Islay... and I''m a fairly new Scotch drinker . Though I''ve been drinking whiskey most of my 54 years. WOW! Peaty...and very smokey. I don''t mean that in a bad way..but am I the only one getting good, smoked sardines? And I love sardines but the smoke and peat just bring that to mind. With a wonderful intense toffee sweetness that follows across the tongue and a very smooth finish. This is drinking it neat. I intend to make my second tasting over a little ice to see how it opens. Overall I am very happy with it and enjoying the complexity.

    Great Peat Smell, subtle smoke, wonderful maritime salinity provided by liquorice, oak chips. Seaweed and sesame followed by sweet mint. I simply adore this dram from Islay and became a staple bottle on my shelf. Passes with flying colors. Add water and taste how sweet it is. Then add an ice cube and taste how sweeter it gets. Simply Wonderful.

    I have been enjoying my single malt scotch for some time now. It became time to restock my scotch and where I buy it were giving free samples of 18 yr. Wow it hit my taste buds like a long lost friend. The taste of hot tar, with licorice with a slight taste of smoke. I stood there not knowing what to say, but I added it to my other scotches I was buying. I now have a dram of it now and then to give me a fine break from my other scotch I enjoy. Yet I see it goes a little faster than I want. So that means I have to go out and buy some more. But this time I am buying more than one bottle of it. Cheers everyone

    Save the 18 for relatively special occasions, affordable daily dram should be - by default - Laphroaig-QC (Quarter Cask) for its "kick" ... Cheers !

    Nose: Sweet BBQ, toffee, fresh moss, liquorice, absinthe, fennel, coal tar and some TCP. Palate: Big, powerful, needs some water to open up. Sugar notes, peppermint and savory malt flavors that mimic salty bacon start to develop with water. Relatively fresh peat smoke. Sherry-sweet influenced. This dram is still young and the balance is not great. Far from perfection and needs a couple more years to develop.

    I have been drinking this bottle since Christmas and it is a good one. Typical Laphroaig tarry rope and pungent smoke, some days there is a bit of smoked fish too but not always. Rich and complex flavour with a rounded, malty sophistcation that comes with age. Powerful but mellow finish with lingering pepper. Dry and a bit more oak compared to younger expressions.

    Just finished half a bottle with my friends last night. Smokey and smooth, always leaving a need for 1 more round. Outstanding whisky. What a desert!
