Classic Laphroaig in most ways, but made a bit different by the oak finishing! It's a bit hard to tell if it was priced a bit high or not, but...free shipping certainly helps!
Shows its NAS self, underwhelming
Love the smoky taste. Very smooth
Have ordered a couple of sample packs, and considering ordering "The Exceptional" Collection.. Love what I've had, it has expanded my whiskey experience and helped me get employed in the wine and spirits industry here in WA state!! Thank you!
A good whisky, not as peaty as other Laphroaig expressions, well balanced and a good whisky to introduce someone to peat
I love heavily peated scotch, but something is wrong with this expression. I think the new oak cask finish ruins this dram. I worked my way through an entire bottle trying to like it, but Select is just not enjoyable. Not balanced, some off-putting flavors, and even the signature Laphroaig peatiness is off. Sorry, just buy the 10 instead. Better yet, if you're looking for nuanced heavy peat at this price point, get some Ardbeg 10.
Sorry. Way to much peat and smoke for me. I know it is the favorite for some and for them I highly recommend it. If you want a smother scotch I would say look to another.
