  1. daevid scored this whisky 91 points Newbie

    It resembles Laphroaig 25, but Ardbeg 25 is sweeter, less medicinal and less fruity (as it contains bourbon barrels only). It offers similar quality as Laphroaig 25 (2017); however its price tag is significantly higher. Great and rare whisky indeed with imposing package, but not as outstanding as its price would suggest.
    • Nose
      92 92
      It has of course a significantly sweeter nose than younger Ardbegs: sweet lemon and banana surrounded by mild peat smoke, vanilla and also a wee bit of orange and peppermint. Impressive!
    • Taste
      91 91
      Initially peppery then arrives the mild peat smoke and the sour lemon/sweet cream duo. Maybe a little apple and candied orange can also be recognised. Indeed it has not lost all its sharpness during the years, also has the balance but the flavours could have been a little more intense and sustained (maybe with higher AVB).
    • Finish
      91 91
      The finish is medium-long where the peat smoke is also more pronounced than on the nose but still offset by the sweet cream. The finish is also balanced, no off-notes.
