  • Excerpt: A fun, familiar flavor akin to movie-theater popcorn butter kicks in toward the finish, which is so savory it's almost crunchy, giving the palate plenty to do.

  • Excerpt: Add water and give it time though, and there is this lightly exotic, herbal, hazelnut-like element. It lacks depth and the tarry thump beloved by many Laphroaig lovers, but is an interesting departure.

  • Excerpt: The Madeira finish seems a little pointless and disposable to me but it certainly didn’t hurt the whisky and was well integrated. A good, solid Laphroaig that is destined for hip flasks on the shore in years to come. Which is exactly what these bottlings should be I think. Well done Laphroaig.

  • Excerpt: The Madeira-driven additions don’t add much in the end, but they do give it a little something special to remember… and at the very least they don’t detract at all.
