A vibrant young Laphroaig whose maturation has been accelerated by ageing in quarter casks. This shows soft sweetness and a velvety feel when first tasted, then the intense peatiness so unique to Laphroaig comes bursting through. A terrific whisky and great value.Tasting Notes (2)

Tasting Notes by Dr. Whisky
Seductive smells. Ripe, new-make barley sweetness. A barbecue. A flower. A sooty chimney. A horse. A can of condensed milk. A slice of apple and a piece of Gouda. An amazingly tactile nose, if that makes sense; the aromas seem to make physical contact, they touch me.
Oak. Fruit. Grandparents' musty apartments. Soft impact that is very sensual and easy at the higher-than-normal abv%. Toffee and stubbed cigarettes. Nutty cheesiness. Slow arrival of a huge peaty impact and a cloud of smoke. Smoky finish with biscuity chewiness hanging around.
SUMMARY: An absolute treat to drink. Full-on and not for every mood, but hearty as a good stew. A sweeter, softer, friendlier Laphroaig that still manages to fill every corner of the house of your senses with the medicinal peatiness in ways that only Laphroaig can. And should. And does.
Tasting Notes by TF
Powerful smoke, sweet malt, wet turf, coal. Develops chocolate & cinnamon.
Full-bodied, rich and mouth-coating. Delicious sweet gristy malt and rich peat, woodsmoke. The coal appears mid-palate.
Very long, sweet and smoky, with the coal lingering longest.
A belter. Denser and deeper than the 10 yr-old. Very more-ish.

Excellent. Obviously a lot of peatiness going on but its also sweet with a lot of other flavours within it. I always go back to this one no matter which region I wander to. Worth a try if you're new to Islay. Recommended.
This is an excellent dram my new favourite whisky will be getting this again
A beautiful, and very satisfying glass!
A whole lot of whisky you're getting for a very reasonable price. Lovely, peaty whisky with a great balance of sweetness & smokiness. One to enjoy by the fire!
Great, just needs a splash of water.
