yeap.
Tastes like crap and not worth the money. The 10 years is way better.
Which is probably why he posted it on a deals forum, not a Whiskey tasting discussion board.

So is "Select" supposed to mean more exclusive and luxurious than the standard 10 y.o or does it mean selected barrels that were not good enough for the 10yo single malt?

"Laphroaig Select takes its name from the special selection of American and European casks, chosen for their unique character that they give during maturation. "
Stick to the 10yo or Quarter Cask
I don't mind peaty malts but this brand is too potent. The TCP smell is too strong for me. Heat for the price though.

It is because of the price reduction not necessarily for the taste of it.

It's, marketing blurb :-( I was wondering about the reality. I actually rather like the 10yo single malt. It is a very strong and peaty whisky. Probably an acquired taste and not for the whisky novice but on a cold winter night, by the fire, it can be the best drink in the world :-) I haven't tried the "Select" and there's a part of me that has doubts that it is just marketing for lower end stuff. Maybe I need to go search on a specialised whisky review site.

This just got delivered for me. I really like peaty whiskey, but this has an odd, almost artificial taste to it.
Would probaly finish this one, but never order again.
