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

This is why I keep trying new whiskys. Maybe the best Laphroaig Ive had. A slight touch better than the 15 yo Cairdeas.

This is the middleground between the complex mature 27 yo and the 10 yo we all love.

General description

Ein gnadenlos ehrlicher Tropfen mit einer weichen Balance zwischen Rauch Torf und einer leichten Süße und etwas Meer.

Ich hoffe Laphroaig kann sich gegen suntory behaupten.

General description

A nice rich taste. The smoke is a little less intense as with the 10yo but overall the flavor is more complicated/aged. A bit to expensive perhaps but if you can get your hands on a sample... it is a must try for fans of smoky whiskys.

General description

Ein wunderbarer Whisky von Laphroaig. Könnte etwas rauchiger sein.

Nose

Rauch, Gewürze und Seegras, eine Spur Salz.

Palate

Eine stimmige Mischung aus Rauch, Eichenholz und Sommerwiese.

Finish

Lang und etwas ölig mit einem guten Teil Rauch und Gewürzen.

Very nice, but sharp taste. Also a bit expensive for what you get.

General description

Simply put, the best whisky I've yet sampled. Granted, my experience with top shelf whiskys is very limited, but I believe this expression of Laphroaig's core brand would compare favorably.

Intense peat and smoke, good, even very good, but not overwhelming. A little too expensive for what you get.
