Whisky Reviews for Laphroaig 15-year-old
9 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 87.45 points
- The same evaluation as the 700ml version, because I haven't tasted it yet
Smoky salt air, dusty oak, vanilla and fruit - very lively and youthful.
It tastes immediately the young age, although this is already much better than the 10 year old. Sweet smoke and salt in interaction with vanilla, pepper, oak and unripe fruits.
Long and dry with a lot of acidity and a bit of bitterness.
- Laphroaig Tasting Notes:
Colour: Bright gold
Nose: Mild versus the 10 Years Old, soft smoke, pleasant sweet, like new hay
Body: Full bodied, smooth
Taste: Lively oak sweetness, warm peat smoke, fresh nutmeg and toasted almonds. Faint salt
Finish: Prolonged, mellow
- Tasted on 2014.05.24.
Balance and Conclusion: Traditional Laphroaig style, easy drink, with quite acceptable price (about US$50 in Taiwan before 2011, but discontinued from the OB product line unfortunately). A good Laphroaig whisky, very suitable for such a rainy night.
Alcohol interference, mint, light peat, seaweed, light iodine, pineapple, grass, smoke, sea wind, and butter. 22
Palate: Tar, peat, iodine, tangerine peel, dark chocolate, salty, smoke, and a little black pepper. Warm. 22
Finish: Medium to long, tar, salty, light peat and iodine, a little dry and tannic. 21
- Single dram note. Blind tasting. 2013_02
camphor, orangeade/citronat, earthy, some tea, dry oak & faint pines. (90)
oily, leather, maple, salty. (89)
long, smoke & peat, humidor & cigarres (plus the ash), caramel, faint pineapple. (90)
- An excellent Laphroaig. Can be the most advanced of the OB range?
- A better whisky than the 10, but maybe not a better Laphroaig.
Peat smoke. Tarred rope. Asphalt. Some lemon zest.
Sweet. Powerful peat smoke. Sulphur. Fresh cut grass.
Very long and warming. A big hug of peat.
- A superb malt at a great price! (as long as there is stock ...) !!
-> The version tested in these notes is that of 2000.
Very nice nose, subtle and complex. It is woody and a well integrated peat supports a multitude of scents. He is a sailor. After aeration notes of fruits are released: pineapple, orange, grapefruit and some exotic fruits. Smell of hay too.
The mouth is reminiscent of the nose but notes stand out more particularly: lemon, other fruits and especially spices.
A final of very good length, fine.
