Quite simply this is a very good full sherried single malt, right out of the textbook, not too old and not too young. There is nothing unusual about it at all, but it is delicious. – Rating: 87/100
The nose is extremely pleasant and promises a wonderful palate, but the strong soapy flavours completely ruin the experience. – Rating: 62/100
A wonderful combination of peat and sherry. It is dry but not too woody and feels older than it actually is. – Rating: 91/100
It is amazing how medicinal this old whisky still is. The complexity in this epic dram is enormous. – Rating: 90/100
A very rich sherry monster with a fantastic nose. The palate lacks a little depth, despite the driness you can feel that it is still rather young. – Rating: 85/100
The sherry cask adds a slight fruitiness to this Laphroaig that is in perfect balance with the trademark medicinal peat. Very delicious! – Rating: 91/100
Distillery manager Charlie Smith in person hosted a masterclass at the Munich festival. I was delighted to see that their two top bottlings (25yo and 30yo) were poured, along with the 12yo FOCM bottling and the 18yo.
Although it is very sweet, this liquer also offeres a range or rather intensive flavours. If you like it sweet and orangey, this bottle is the right choice for you. – Rating: 79/100
A nice straightforward dram with a good balance of sweetness, fruit and spice, but certainly not one of the best Rosebanks out there. – Rating: 81/100
A very pleasant light-bodied malt that does not brag with its qualities but delivers nonetheless. – Rating: 84/100
A noticeable improvement compared to the old Knockdhu, fuller flavour and less domininat spice. A nice malt offering good value. – Score: 82/100
