Williamson "Laphroaig" 2010, The Whisky Jury

  • Nose: plenty of warm smoky notes with the typical mercurochrome and bandages. Tarry ropes and seaweed. Sweet apples and a hint of vanilla biscuit in the background. Leather saddle, as well as some farmy notes (stables). A subtle whiff of oil paint as well.


    Mouth: quite oily and full of character. More iodine, seaweed, smoked kippers and brine. It gets rounder with hints of almonds and sesame. Sooty notes with a touch of cough syrup. Brine and tapenade.


    Finish: long, coming back to the drier leathery notes, with liquorice and brine in the very end, as well as some smoldering peat.


    Excellent Laffie, deeply smoky and coastal, with a nice farmy touch. Bottled at a good moment, showing plenty of intensity but no ‘disturbing’ youth. Slightly more unique than the sister cask, I’d say.
