Laphroaig Select Bottling Note

For the Laphroaig Select, the Islay distillery has taken whisky from a number of different types of cask, including Oloroso Sherry butts, white American oak, Pedro Ximenez seasoned hoggies, Quarter casks and first fill bourbon casks. Quite a "selection", wouldn't you say? A laid-back addition to the Laphroaig core range of single malts.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Classic, medicinal peat notes up front, supported by citrus-y, chocolate-y sweet notes and soft barley.

Palate: The peat is there, but it's taking it easy and letting the bright notes of lemon, green apples and mint stand out. Darker baking spice notes develop further on.

Finish: Medium length, peat remaining in sight until it's over.

Overall: It doesn't pack a huge punch of peat, which might be just the ticket for introducing someone to the wonders of Islay's smoky expressions.

Laphroaig Select Reviews

Worth the £23 for this none aged statement Islay

On the nose medicinal notes with obvious peat . Stewed baked apples and oily texture on the palate . On the finish sea and maritime notes which linger pleasently.

COmplex Flavor - Tastes Good to Me

Honestly, the only other Scotch I've ever tasted is the Glenlivet 14, which I found to be too bland and burning. By contrast, this is much more drinkable, with a very smokey, earthy, leather aroma and taste. So my 5-star review is only based on two bottles. For all I know, this could be terrible compared to most other bottles, but I'm enjoying it as a nice alternative to my favorite Bourbon sand Rum.

Just say no!

The worst thing that Laphroaig have ever done. I love Laphroaig and tried now than my fair share of their wider range, bit I wouldn't have another bottle of this if they were giving it away.

Not a patch on their other stuff

My parents ask what I want for Christmas, I say Laphroaig, but they get this wood flavoured vodka instead. It's not worth the £3 you're saving, get the proper stuff.

Disappointed

Smells and tastes as Dettol antiseptic.
Not that great...

Disappointed

No where near the 10 year old a high disappointment where is the peat. Just a hint in the pallet nothing on the nose . Bad buy should have gone for the 10 year old

Stop whinging!

I thought this was really quite delicious especially after getting slowly towards the second half of the bottle. Total bargain at £23. Why compare it to the 10 then get upset if it’s not the same. Stop whinging! It also makes a really excellent Old Fashioned!

Unique

Tried this after Quarter Cask. It's not as good but does satisfy the urge for a smoky whisky.

Nose: smoky, sea salt, anti-septic (strange indeed but is pleasant on the nose).
Palate: sea salt, apple.
Finish: Long, peat and smoked fish.

Strange, unique but ultimately satisfying. Have to be in the mood for it.
