About

Laphroaig produces one of the most strongly flavoured of all Scotch whiskies. Their core range is known for the 'band-aid signature', but most of the other expressions also have a distinctive, medicinal peatiness.

General description

TL/DR - nice smokey scotch with a fair amount of peat but enough sweetness to be very drinkable

Aroma - peat and wood

Taste - initial semi sweet sherry gives way to a mid flavor burn with a smokey finish reminiscent of a nice camp fire

Mouth feel - full bodied

This is my favorite of the Laphroaig line of scotches. It has the right amount of peat, smoke, and sweetness.

Not that smokey for a laphroaig single malt whisky. Smooth with a hint of woodyness mixed with sherry. Very good in my opinion!

General description

The best peated whisky I have tasted so far. You can feel it has matured in ex-bourbon barrels. A notable progress from the basic 10 year old.

General description

Like getting a punch in the face from a boxer who's wearing velvet boxing gloves. My favorite Laphroaig thus far.

Nose

peat, hints of red fruit, peach. A whiff of iodine. A wet townsquare, where the fish market took place until two hours ago.

Palate

heavy peat in a sherried wrapping. Salt, ash, vanilla, smoke and red fruit. The characteristic Laphroaig band aid signature, but this time in a velvety package.

Finish

creamy Chocolate, bitter coffee and a fading mix of gentle spices and sweet peatsmoke.

General description

Smooth medicinal flavor with hints of vanilla oak all shrouded in smoke and peat. The finish is long and savory!

피트감 충만한 첫향과 다르게 동그랗게 말아들어가는 부드러운 맛이 너무 기분좋음 맛있다
