Top reviews for Alexander Murray Laphroaig 12 Year Old:

— Fabulous scotch. Best of Laphroaig, but a little less medicinal, a bit of brine and a bit maltier. If you like Islay scotches you will not be disappointed.

— Not like other Laphroaig bottlings. It has a hickory bbq smokiness with less latex notes and a bit of sweetness that compliments the smoke perfectly

— I like how the peat flavor comes through and there’s a warmth that lingers

Lawrence,
Smoke and peat hit you immediately. Spice and a hint of sweet lingers

Fabulous scotch. Best of Laphroaig, but a little less medicinal, a bit of brine and a bit maltier. If you like Islay scotches you will not be disappointed.

Antti,
It is a very good, intense, 'Single Malt Scotch Whisky that has an aromatic birth; while a rich & spicy life that leads to a long & peaty death with notes of oak, earth & flowers.

Tonia,
A little less peat, a little less medicinal. A bit more sweet. Really enjoyable.
 
Gregory
Gregory,
This single malt is not for everyone. People who enjoy smokey or peat like flavor profiles will likely enjoy this. This single malt is semi-sweet and has a comfortable medium heat when held in one's mouth. Would likely pair well with smoked meats, barbecue like or earthy flavors (e.g. mushrooms).

Chris,
So much smoke you only have to open the bottle to know what this is going to taste like. Guess what, it tastes like a bonfire mixed with whisky!
 
Travis
Travis,
Good peat but seems thinner than laphroaig
 
James
James,
Smooth, not too spicy or sweet, delicious. Unfortunately has on off-putting musky odor.
 
Nic
Nic,
I nice mix of peat and sweet, a departure from your usual Laphroaig, in that the peat is a little subdued, the medicinal notes are muted, and the toffee takes centre stage, but fun nonetheless
 
Seth
Seth,
That’s an islay alright. Smokey upfront with a sweet finish. Really complex and delicious. I’m more of a highland guy but would drink thiss any day.

Nakeva,
Strong on the smoky and almost literally tastes like licking an ashtray. Not my taste for regular enjoyment, however, it may work well on a cold evening while enjoying smoked brisket and friends that smoke.
 
George
George,
flavor not like this one. Real strong petty taste and smokey flavor not my cup of tea.
 
ANNE
ANNE,
Peat and smoke.
 
Nathan
Nathan,
I was excited to try this Scotch, until I smelled it and the smoke was so overwhelming that it reminded me of burnt olives... The flavor didn't change my mind a lot either. It was like sucking ash from a still-lit camp fire. I have a friend that likes VERY smoky Scotch and even he was overwhelmed by it. I'm sure it's a fine Scotch and has many admirers, but unfortunately, I'm not one of them.

Love the Peat and smooth going Down!

Michael,
Just didn't have a lot of the great peaty attributes of other Laphroigs
 
Worth
Worth,
Way too much smoke for my taste. That was all the flavor I got, and I couldn’t get rid of it with two palate cleansers and another whiskey.

John,
Not my cup of peat

Just not my thing...

Smooth at first with a definite hit of smoke. Next on the tongue is sweetness and then the heat/spice comes last.

Zach
Zach,
So soft you don’t even feel it hit your tongue. Then it packs a sweet, peaty punch. More peat than a Laphroaig 10, but not at rich. Very tasty, but the Laph 10 is a better value at half the price.
 
Robert
Robert,
My type of dram. More peat than the 10 year and has a really great flavor to it. Sort of a sweeter 10 year with more peat. Less smoke than the 10 but super dynamic with the citrus, oak and tobacco notes. I would buy one to keep at the bar.
