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

I’ve been drinking this 10-year-old Islay for well over 15 years. I find it to be consistent in its strength, complexity, and overall characteristics. It lives up to its reputation for being heavy in peat and smoke. After trying other Islay Scotches, I’ve settled on this, Ardbeg and Laphroaig quarter cask. Compared to the 18-year-old and some other Laphroaig caskings it is much rougher, but more complex. Iodine, smoke and peat dominate with some sweet. Great with beef, a cigar or chocolate.

Nose

Smoky, medicinal and sweet.

Palate

Starts like iodine, mellows to smoky and sweet.

Finish

Smoke. My wife thinks I’ve been smoking a cigar!

It is like frenchkissing an ashtray and loving it!

Nose

iodine, seaweed, salt, big fat lumps of smoky peat, wet burned ashes and charcoal, phenolic

Taste

a bit sharp the first moment, but than all of its smokiness reveals itselves. Peat mixed with smoke of burnt wood and wet cigars (if this makes sense), a faint touch of oak followed by a stronger sensation of salt, with in the background just a little touch of vanilla sweetness and, finally,  in the throat some salty liquorice

Finish

long and smoky, ash, with some smoked nutts in the end to give it just a little sweet note at the very end.

Plenty of smoke in a wonderfully smooth character which follows all the way through. Medicinal qualities.

Not as good as the Quarter Cask.

Nose

Smoked Wood & cigars, a subtle warm fruity sweetness.

Palate

Smoky woods & gently herbaceous, nothing overpowering; in-fact really quite smooth. Spices arise from the oak character.

Finish

Smooth, gentle pepper presents carrying more smoke and a gentle peat.

Very good dram for the money, but I like the quarter cask much more. Simply gives more input.

Nose

Strong smoke creeping around the glass and into the nose. Phenolice iodine. Lemongras and ginger. And a little aniseed.

Warm, smoky, dry, a bit vanilla.

Peaty medium finish with light oak bitterness and a creamy mouthfeel.

General description

A great full bodied scotch that hits you with peat and smoke across the room. A beautiful attack with sea salt, pears, and a dash of medicine. The finish lingers for a moment with a slightly harsh refrain of the same flavors. All in all, a good peated scotch, but needs a couple more years in the barrel.

Nose

Strong notes of peat, smoke, and sea salt.

Palate

Oily palate with notes of pears, peat, iodine, and seaweed.

Harsh, but good length. Shows it's peatiness here too.

Its after nightfall. Men sit around a campfire laughing and telling stories. The smell of the sea hangs heavily in the air. They have just finished a meal of fresh venison stew. Suddenly shots ring out. Someone has just realized that instead of packing a nice kentucky bourbon or speyside scotch, some asshole brought Laphroaig. Kidding aside, Islay scotches are an acquired taste. I appreciate it for what it is....primal, smoky, peaty, and delicious after a hearty meal.

General description

Rich and peaty, but a bit medical. Needs more time to compare to the likes of Laga, but a strong example of Islay at a drinkable price.

General description

Legendary Islay classic. Peaty, smoky, salty. Good value.

Nose

Phenolic smoke, peat and salt. Sweetness coming slowly. Not very complex.

Palate

Smoke above sweetness. Salted honey, some maritime notes. Not as peaty as the nose. Pretty smooth.

Finish

Medium. Would be better with higher alcohol level.

For me this whisky is the pure taste of Islay. Smoke, peat, salt, oak and a surprising sweetness. Tastes like a campfire on the beach.

Great whiskey, sampled with a good friend in conjunction with Balvenie 12 yr double wood, and enjoyed both a great deal! This one ìs definitely smokier, but had less flavour.

Fantastische whisky! Zeer mannelijk! Stevig rokerige turf smaak. Afdronk is toch zacht en lang. Geweldig voor de koude winter dage

A bit more smoky. The smoke covers much of flavour, but still tasty.
