Whisky Reviews for Laphroaig 25-year-old

6 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 90.23 points

  1. Hemdl scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    Not a really bad malt in and of itself.
    Has a really very nice nose that is really promising. Unfortunately, the taste is very tamed, downright "flat". In a direct comparison, the 25 Cask Strength is the significantly better (and cheaper) choice.
    It's a shame that too much water was used here. With 46% or 48% things would certainly look a little better. This leaves a Laphroaig that is great on the nose, but quite boring on the palate.

  2. rampah scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    It is quite good, but way too expensive.

    I liked the yearly 25yo CSs more. (and they are also cheaper)

    • Nose
      89 89
      with mild smoke and a hint of medicinal note, tarred hemp rope, a hint of maritime but also slightly floral. Trace of lemon, light fruitiness and sweetness behind. A little freshly ground pepper. Looks a bit fragile and bursting.
    • Taste
      89 89
      smoky, spicy, oak, sweet and fruity, a little tar, spices, some barrel and coffee. Now a hint of herbaceous and earthy, also here slightly maritime and salty, trace of lemon. Slightly tart with oak spice, aromatic, intense and engaging.
    • Finish
      88 88
      intense with a little smoke, spicy oak, a hint of pepper and chocolate, long fading with a little ash, trace of salty.

      I think it's great and tasty.

  6. Kensay scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    not the best release of Laphroaig 25
    • Nose
      Light sea breeze, a burning fire, smoked fish on charcoal
    • Taste
      Woody, oily, burnt lemon peel
    • Finish
      Medium bitterness with spices, medium duration
