Member Ratings and Notes
Andy
 

n:  Classic Laphroaig tar and iodine with a bit of steroids.  Fireplace ash.

 

p:  Much more charcoal than a standard Laphroaig. More woody too.  A nice malt.  A small step up from the 10.

Nose is charcoal, mild antiseptic, a little burnt plastic, hint of rest stop bathroom on the way to Vegas.

 

Palate is sooty, ashy, medium-sweet. Tasty and hits the spot for a peaty whisky, but not in an "aahhhh" way, it sort of just fits the bill. Petroleum-type notes. Finish dries out, but not very much so, with unusual tannic spices lingering. Not a lot going on here for me.  B/B-

 
Fuji
 

N: varnish, mahogany furniture, paint thinner

P: cinnamon, rubber, with peat and anise.  A bit dry and thin

F: bit more rubber

 
Kevin
 

N: Strong grassy and firewood notes that very differenty from other Laphs. 

P: Nice light flavor but hot. The wood come through more here. 

F: Long hot finish

 

In hindsight, I should have tried adding H20. I think that would really open this one up.

A-/B+ 

 
Ries
 
Savoury flavours of peat smoke and red berry sweetness. Ash and mixed berries. Phenols are more abundant. Oak char and ash in the finish. Solid whisky.
