[December, 2011]  I found this dram in an advents calendar sampled by MaRa.

In my old rating system (ten scales that translate into WB points: 50 - 66 - 75 - 80 - 82,5 - 85 - 87,5 - 90 - 92,5 - 95) I scored it 92,5.  Unfortunately I took no detailed notes.

There is no accounting for taste...

[March, 2004]  I had this during a Laphroaig rarities tasting at Rolandsbogen.

In my old rating system (ten scales that translate into WB points: 50 - 66 - 75 - 80 - 82,5 - 85 - 87,5 - 90 - 92,5 - 95) I scored it 92,5. Unfortunately the notes of this tasting were lost.

There is no accounting for taste...

My rating for a Laphroaig 15, 75cl, 40%, from the end of the 80s. No large red number on main label, but small 15 in similar font as on this on the neck label instead. Quite lovely too.

Remember - whisky scores and impressions are highly subjective and situational by nature - so don't go and buy whisky according to someone else's taste...

the version with the red letter on the bottom and top label is a superb whisky, with clean and mineral peaty notes and a delicious sherry sweetness, resulting in a balanced and complex whisky. Very different from the current bottlings or from the now discontinued 15 YO.
