It's okay. It lacks the sweetness and rounded smokiness of the 10 year old. I find it very dry with the smoke more reminiscent of ashtrays. Nonetheless it's drinkable, if slightly weird.
Excellent, smooth & perfect smoked taste
Have loved the Triple Wood. The Four Oak is not quite as complex, but it has a rich, lovely bite
Fabulous. Smooth, peaty absolutely delicious. Best single malt there is in my opinion.
I was disappointed with this one. It was much less smoky than the 10yr or even the Quarter Cask, but it lacked other dimensions to balance it out. The finish was particularly disappointing and "flat". I've had other light- and medium- smoky whiskeys that were much better balanced and multi-dimensional.
I’m no whiskey connoisseur but in comparison to the 10yr old it’s not as punchy with the peat or clinging finish. It’s still good, but tastes much like the Laphroig Select.
Very nice. Good taste.
Thoroughly agree wit Jimmy J and the tasting notes. I am yet to taste the Laphroaig 10 so I cannot compare this with the "default" expression. I like the amount of peat in this and it is much softer than Ardbeg 10 with a lighter mouthfeel. The peat at the end stays with you and makes you want more. Buttercream at the end is a pleasant surprise. Very satisfying and well worth the price for a litre of this delectable dram
Not bad, an easy sipping Laphroaig, more peat in the nose than in the mouth. If you're looking for a peaty beast, this isn't it, but a nice sipper none the less and reasonable value, makes a change from the regular 10
