Compared to the 10yo Cask Strength this is a rather mild Laphroaig, but the higher age does not really result in a more rounded character. – Rating: 83/100

The nose suggests a rich fruitiness, but on the palate the malt becomes a bit too sour for my taste to be truly enjoyable. – Score: 81/100

Macduff 1990/2009 Whisky Doris

Needs time and water to open up. Great nose, but the palate is too herbal for my taste, and even with quite a lot of water it is pretty “hot”. – Score: 74/100

A very richly flavoured sherried blend. The nose is impressive, but the palate could profit from a few more ABV points. This is miles away from the standard supermarket or pub blends. The aged grain whisky has lost all of its roughness and caters for a delicate silky smooth mouthfeel. – Score: 84/100
