Laphroaig scores

Laphroaig Scotch Whisky was recently voted best single malt by The Whisky Shop.

Da shit

Among the single malts, i luv dis one d most for now. My buddy Gleeson once brought a bottle to Sid’s, and i had a few. It’s one of the rare occasions that i enjoy sipping a whisky straight-up, coz its that good. Smoky-ass shit, from Islay.

The one selected here is the Laphroaig (pronounced la-froig) Quarter Cask (48% abv). Havent tried it, but seen it at duty-free. It retails for about 175 online.

Other winners:

Non-peated Highland whisky: Old Pulteney 12-year old

Island whisky: Talisker 10-year old

Lowland whisky: Auchentoshan 12-year old

Speyside whisky: BenRiach 12-year old

Sherried whisky: Glenfarclas 105

Premium whisky: The Dalmore 18-year old

  1. Lookin forward to your wedding then!
    175 ringgit online. Am not sure about KLIA, but KLIA/LCCT are one of the most expensive duty-frees around, whether u buying Scotch or Mars. Will check with my single malt specialist and get back to u

  2. Laphroaig, FTW indeed !

    the peatiness is evident in it, and was about to also suggest the Talisker 10 for those who like it before I noticed it too got voted as the best island whisky.

    for sherried whiskies, the Glenfarclas 105 is good, but i much preferred the Glenmorangie Burgundy Casked, which sadly is no longer in production. Still have a bottle in my cellar though.

    a dram, one of these days, perhaps.

  3. I really do not get why people even go for blended malt when single malt is like 100 times better. Tried Laphroaigh before. Though not a fan of islay whiskey myself (prefer speyside), it was certainly one of the most interesting whiskeys ever along with the lagavulin 16 as 1 of u mentioned.
