Tasting Notes

  • Producer's Tasting Notes

    Colour: Burnt Orange

    Nose: Starting with rich sweetness of figs, moving into a floral flavour of lavender and black pepper developing into sweet natural honey notes

    Body: An intense and profound depth

    Palate: Very peppery, spicy also liquorice root with a slight saltiness. Moving to gentle oak tannins, lovely orange peel and then a dry earthiness

    Finish: Lovely creamy walnuts enveloped by the very distinct Laphroaig peatiness that lasts and lasts

    Incredible. I’ve had almost every release from LAPHROAIG and this one is up in my top three. The 10year cask and quarter cask are the only others that can compete with this

    This is an excellent, complex dram from Laphroaig. Starts out smooth and sweet, moves to some spice, then salty and a good amount of peat smoke. This whisky covers all bases, is rich, full and delicious. It is up there with Talisker 18, and quite honestly i may like it even more

    I find this scotch very palatable- the slight salty tang makes it a winner and unique. The aromas are incredibly pungent - and my wife always knows when i have opened the bottle for a dram. I'm pretty pleased with this purchase - I will definitely try more from this distillery.

    A very unique whiskey with an amazing complexity of smoke, citrus and slightly toasted bacon taste.

    Worthy of a 5 star review... Everything that people are saying... But in addition to that this dram is salty and exceptionally so... very enjoyable.

    It''s worth its price tag - a smooth & richly flavoured malt with an undertone of smoke

    Incredibly smooth and gentle whisky, considering it''s a Laphroaig. Bursting full of flavor with only a hint of smoke. A mellowness you normally only see in rare and expensive ( ?300) Laphroaig whiskies. I love it!
