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.

It's a great example of why islay is my personal favorite region for scotch whisky
Splendid. Be careful with this, it made me fall over !!!
The only value option we have since Laphroaig watered down the 10 year. I like it, and much better than the 40% 10 year. Go for the cask strength if you want something close to what 10 year used to be like, unfortunately the price is double now.
I didn’t like at first. But it grew on me and now i always have a bottle at home. Delicious!
So... I tried this one after seeing some reviews and went on it with mixed feelings. I think that overall it was nice... A bit harsh on the nose but still recognisable Laphroaig character with a lot of smokiness. Tastewise the wood was overpowering at first followed by a lot of sweetness and the smoke was present all the way through. I didnt think that anything was to bad or tasted like asphalt as i read in some reviews although i thought at some point that the taste was a bit to chemical. Let me say that though when i diluted my pour with about 1-2 ml water it opened up and i enjoyed it a lot. All in all it was ok worth the taste but for sure the 10yr old is untouchable by the quarter cask.
