Whisky Reviews for Laphroaig 16-year-old

4 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 88.76 points

  1. wisekycourse scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    nose:
    characteristic of the distillery with oily peat, citrus fruits on lime, and a trace of vanilla with marzipan
    A plus with a little varnish and more wood; a grassy freshness is also there
    mouth:
    maritime peat, sea spray, peppery spices, a little almond hull!
    bitterness, the wood quite dry all at once, a little creamy, a little meaty, then the borderline iodized peat, the freshness of a drizzle which returns wet herbs and dried seaweed;
    the fruits are more on the fruit basket with cooked apples and pears, the lemon disappearing.
    final:
    on the same scents with woody, spicy and peaty both maritime and earthy, still heavy,
    final that lasts.

  4. thewhiskeyjug scored this whisky 90 points Expert Junior

    Aroma is smoky, coastal, and fresh pastries married by an underlying fruity dessert sweetness and earthy oakiness; Palate carries the coastal notes and adds juicy fruit and delicately sweet notes with barley water and a metallic twang; Finish is smoke heavy with light sweet and earthy notes.
