When I first tried it, I felt it's a NAS with young whiskies and a crap medicinal taste. Dint enjoy it much. It was complex though. Couple of weeks down the line, I tried again. It was peaty & medicinal but could sense some spices like cloves. A bit fruity on the nose though the phenolic note was prevalent. On the palate, it was more rounded & tasted a lot like an aged islay perhaps 15-20 yrs vintage feel. A month or so down the line, I tried again. It was fabulous. It was a bit more viscous. Great peaty flavour & more rounded wih recognizable sweetness. The finish was long and enjoyable. Oaky as well. My opinion changed. Perhaps there are young whiskies used but I felt aged/vintage ones. Definitely worth a buy. Let it evolve a bit.

One of the most medicinal tastes I've ever had! And quite different from all the other Laphroaigs I've had (10, 15, Quarter Cask). There's something about it that feels completely new territory. It is sweet and medicinal at the same time. Of course, you can instantly recognize it's Laphroaig, but there's so much more in here and really a lot going on. You have plasters, cough medicine, peat, smoke, liquorice, clove, fruits, herbal tea and so on. One of the most complex whiskies I've ever tasted and I'm truly enjoying it! Highly recommended to anyone, who ever enjoyed a dram of whichever Laphroaig. Or to anybody just wanting to get a truly eccentric whisky experience. I would rate this even better that the core range. Get your hands to it while you can!

I have had nearly 2 full bottles of this, and separated by nearly a year. This whisky is stunning and well worth the price, although the travel retail is becoming more affordable. I share some others' concern about NASs, but quality is all that matters -- I think we can all agree the NAS Quarter Cask is amazing and adds another dimension to Laphroaig. If one goes from the QC to the PX cask, you step in the direction of An Cuan Mòr but you don't quite get there, and the PX is glorious, building on the QC enrichment and taking it to the next level. When you get to An Cuan Mòr the vibrancy is amazing, but the balance between the smokiness, the sweetness and the spiciness is something to behold. Minerality and salt, yes, but there is a marvelously balanced sweetness, nearly fruit skins and zest. The smoke is there, but it is no Corryvreckan attempt, and if you have them side by side, you will find an intense fruit note in the ACM. No, this bottle is more subtle and balanced and yet as vibrant as can be (nothing bad to say about Corryvreckan, of course, but that is a totally different story). This dram is delicious and I predict fans will rejoice. QC < PX < ACM.

Aside from the 18 year old this is the best Laphroaig I have tasted.

Big on flavour but a bit rough round the edges - it appears to be Laphroaig's version of Corryvrekan... but at £20 more and not in my view worth the extra. It does not better or even match the big flavour of the 10yo cask strength and is nearly double the price! why bother with this ?? Furthermore is it no wher nearly as refined or classy as the 18yo so save you cash for this or go for the cask 10yo if you want a massive smack of full-on essence fo Laphroaig

One of the best whisky I have ever tasted probably the best one. Very phenolic taste, full of flavour. Taste will surprise you. Not typical whisky taste and can be difficult if you looking for "typical taste of whisky". You either love or hate.

I love Laphroaig. I love all of their expressions. The ten year old is a real bargain, and an amazing whisky. Quarter cask and Triple wood are impressive. . The eighteen year old is really something special. The An Cuan Mor is is the best yet. I am not an expert, I won't insult you by pretending to be. However, this expression is everything I like about Laphroaig, only smoother. Not smooth like lack of flavor, it has all the big, smokey, medicinal flavor's you love, but just smooth; with all the things you already love about Laphroaig. I'm lucky to have a wife who loves me enough to bring me back a bottle from the Frankfurt airport. If you can grab a bottle from the chaps at Master of Malt, do so. No Laphroaig fan will be disappointed.
