This is the sort of elegant restrained whisky that I like, but you need to take your time with it to get everything.
  • Nose
    peat and sherry tightly combined, faints hints of banana, brine, seaweed, toffee, ice cream wafer, caramels, touch of honey and dried fruits with a dose of English breakfast marmalade.
  • Taste
    Sweet peat mixing beautifully with the sherry, the peat is not overpowering in any way and stewed fruits come through, grapefruit, pineapple & mango, a little chocolate and Turkish delight notes perhaps a little rhubarb and custard?
  • Finish
    Getting sweeter with the peat coming back a little.

    With water the nose is more distant and the palate is more restrained, a little weaker so do not add more than a few drops.

Вывод: потрясающий, безумно многогранный виски, обладающий превосходным балансом и глубиной. Лепестки роз в послевкусии — это супер!
Оценка: 93 (n23,t22,f24,b24)
  • Nose
    Аромат: нежный, утончённый, с большим содержанием отголосков заварного крема, ванили и рассыпчатого печенья. Глубже — старая кожа, листья сигары, чёрный шоколад. Отлично!
  • Taste
    Во вкусе присутствует много сладких оттенков (сгущёнка, сливочные конфеты, пастила). Цветочный чай и цитрусы следуют фоном.
  • Finish
    Финиш: очень долгий, размеренный. Чувствую настойку на воде из лепестков роз, зелёный чай с жасмином. Затем — фрукты и ягоды, а в самом конце — ваниль, дуб и сладкая выпечка.

Вывод: «питкий», вкусный, насыщенный, превосходно сбалансированный образчик. Однозначно — один из лучших, регулярных,10–летних релизов. Необходимая вещь в домашнем баре!
Оценка: 87 (n22,t21,f21,b23)
  • Nose
    Аромат: наполнен приятными жгучими нотами перца, оттенками моря (йод, соль, водоросли) и густого роскошного дыма. Глубже — резиновый жгут, противогаз, бинты, портянки, кирзовые сапоги, грибы, сырость осеннего леса, болото. Ммм... Класс!
  • Taste
    Во вкусе преобладают острые специи, йод, копчёная масляная рыба, жженый сахар, подгоревший на костре хлеб и капелька лайма. Все эти сладко–солёные и дымно–кисло–горькие нюансы, как ни странно, отлично согласуются между собой.
  • Finish
    Финиш: продолжительный, сочный и яркий, полностью повторяющий вкусовую палитру — такой же гармоничный и сочетающий в себе казалось бы несочетаемое.

Вывод: незамысловатый, молодой, летний виски, но в то же время вкусный. Аромат — самая сильная сторона этого молта.
Оценка: 85 (n23,t20,f21,b21)
  • Nose
    Аромат: лёгкий, приторный, насыщенный кондитерскими оттенками (шоколад, леденцы, сахарная вата).
  • Taste
    Вкус попроще — леденцы и цитрусовая кислинка.
  • Finish
    Финиш: непродолжительный, приятный, с нотами зеленого яблока, лимона, карамельки и дуба в самом конце.

Heerlijke Laphroaig, bijzonder veel tropisch fruit in de neus. Behoorlijk veel alcohol in de smaak, waarschijnlijk hebben de eerdere comments te maken met een miniatuur die minder vol zat, weinig peat.
Super lekker.

[August, 2018] ...continuing my CGBP-project (The "Cadenhead Green Bottle Period" lasted from late-1990 until mid-1998 and is characterised by its small size white labels). I bought this bottle for 71 Euro in September, 2001.

This is a fine old style sherried dram that is interesting to explore both neat and reduced (play around with water at different strengths if you own a bottle) and easy-to-sip when reduced to about 50% abv or less. I like the chocolatey touch of the neat dram!
  • Nose
    89 89
    The colour is auburn and the nose offers a fine old school sherry profile (even at the high strength of close to 65% abv). It is rather herbal-driven and I guess this was a PX cask. No off-note that I can find but it certainly cries for water. Some water makes no difference but a fair share really opens up the nose and presents spicy, chocolatey, fruity and nutty aromas while the herbs loose power. A pretty fine mix, indeed.
  • Taste
    90 90
    The neat dram tastes like a perfect mix of sherry-induced and spirit-driven flavours but at this high strength it is hard to identify them one by one (except for the chocolate that stands out a little bit). After a fair share of water the taste offers what I always hope for in such old school sherry-matured drams: chocolate en masse, nuts, raisins, oranges, plums, figs and many more. All nicely balanced and without any flaw (of course, no sulphur as the cask was filled way before 1982).
  • Finish
    88 88
    The whisky arrives hot (no wonder at 64.6% abv) and peppery in the mouth with just a minor coating feeling but no drying or astringent moments. The finish is of medium length and gets sweeter than the taste on fine sugars and more ripe fruits. There is a minor drying-cardboardy moment at the very end of the finish (in the reduced dram below 50% abv only).

A bit reluctant on the nose but then crashing in on the palate and finish - very well balanced - very well comparable to the Longmorn 1972 from the perfect dram - great!
  • Nose

  • Taste
    95 95
    Oily, sirupy, toffee, cooked fruits, oranges, honey, good sweetness, fine oak wood, brown sugar, also dried fruits, dates, figs, milk chocolate - very good
  • Finish
    93 93
    Long, warm, sweet, fruity
