      Nosing: Peat Smoke Medicinal Smoke Caramel Nuts
      Lots and lots of peat smoke, a slightly antiseptic note. Then once the nose acclimatises it becomes sweeter with butterscotch caramel and nuttiness.

      Taste: Sweet Peat Smoke Medicinal Smoke Spices
      Sweet arrival then the smoke comes through. Warm and rich, a touch of coal tar.

      Finish: Peat Smoke Sweet
      Long, sweet and smoky, goes dry at the very end.

      Comment:
      I first had this Laphroaig early on when I started drinking whisky and this was definitely a mistake. I wasn't ready for it and I immediatly took a disliking to it. A couple of years later and I've come back to it with a new appreciation. Its powerful stuff and you have to take your time with it, but it is brilliantly balanced. The alcohol is high, but it really doesn't need water. Also, you absolutely have to open this bottle a couple of days before drinking it and get some air in it. There's an initial sourness that goes away after it oxidises a little and improves it no end.

      Nosing:
      Peat, honey, vanilla, oak

      Taste:
      Earthy peat, sweetness, spiciness and sharpness

      Finish:
      Quite long

      Comment:
      This is nice whisky as this is Laphroaig which I do like. But comparing to 10YO it is less complex and for me less tasty. After typical Laphroaigish kind of peat there is only sweetness and sharpness, after that finish is quite too earthy. No oiliness. For me QC just don't have those wonderfull phenolic and syrupus notes like 10YO for which I like Laphroaig.

      Nosing: Peat Smoke Salt Spices Fruit Banana Oak

      Taste: Peat Smoke Fruit Sweet Pepper Bonfire Smoke Medicinal Smoke

      A smooth yet potent mix. Peat & wood fire smoke, along with a generous ABV make for a fiery yet mouth watering experience. Some fruit and caramel sweetness found, but soon trumped by spice and a lingering dryness. Somewhat akin to a banana & vanilla cake cooked over coals, dusted with pepper and ever so lightly with ginger and nutmeg.

      Finish: Moderate to long

      Nosing: Peat Smoke Medicinal SmokeSweetOak

      Taste: Sweet OakClove Peat Smoke Medicinal Smoke Maritime Notes Alcohol

      Finish: Medium - long.

      Comment: A whisky that evokes a masculine vibe, lots of peat smoke with a little bit of sweetness and some alcohol heat that wakes up your palate at 48%ABV. Notes of Licorice extract and along with a tar/rubber note. Not that complex really, maybe a good choice for warming up on a cold winter's night. Make sure you air the bottle for a little bit prior to drinking as it does let it settle a bit - 78/100.

      Nosing: peaty medicinal smoke, salt, coastal funk. Much like the 10 year but more intense... very light vanilla, some tangy/sweet citrus notes that seem to be slight but detectable. Medicinal Smoke Salt Maritime Notes Vanilla Zitrus

      Taste: Oak, pepper, smoke, salt, costal funk, Again, like a spicier oaken version of the 10 year. Same classic great laphroaig taste, but with more punch. Very very tiny hints of sweetness vanilla, and citrus like, but the dominant tastes are laphroaig and oak. Oak Chili Medicinal Smoke Salt Maritime Notes Vanilla Zitrus

      Finish: medium long, very pleasant, more going on here than the10yr, I assume from the extra wood? Sweetness really comes out in the finish and develops into a fantastic aftertaste that seems much longer than the 10. the sweetness is still discrete enough to not pinpoint, so I will stick with vanilla and citrus.

      Comment: Laphroaig is the single malt that brought me into scotch from years of tolerating bourbon... therefore, I am quite biased. This is a great dram if you find the standard ten year a bit boring, but is not quite as good, in my mind, as the triple wood. Classic laphroaig tastes, so again, if you do not like the 10 year, this may not be right for you. I love the coastal funk, hard to describe, but unlike anything else, laphroaig defines it for me.
