Lp6

Islay single malt scotch whisky

Lp6 is one for Islay fans who like their whiskies dry and lean, with more emphasis on peat and smoke than fruit. This bottling is from the late 1990s, and was matured in a quartet of ex-bourbon barrels.

Tasting notes

  • Nose

    A multitude of aromas here: medicine, brine, black pepper and smoke. Slightly austere and challenging.
  • Palate

    Tropical fruit arrives in the form of mango and pineapple, with some lemon zest, big peat and smoke. Still on the lean side, then vanilla adds richness. Adding water ramps up the fruitiness.
  • Finish

    Long and lingering, with a dry, smoky edge and a touch of vanilla.

Lp6 Reviews

  • Plenty peaty, with good helpings of vanilla and vibrant fruit flesh notes.

    Master of Malt

  • A big Laphroaig with two faces: a savoury, smoky side but also a rounder, fruitier character (especially if you add water).

    Ruben Luyten

  • Fruitier than the official cask-strength bottling but it still focuses on the strong medicinal distillery character.
