  4. DistiLesha scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    Very bright and rich on the palate, but not as complex or peaty on the nose, although with one of the most pleasant finishes in Laphroaig.
    I expected even more from this whisky, but an interesting experience never hurts!

    • Nose
      There is no smoke and phenol at all, fruit cocktail, creamy caramel, phenols here are more like wood phenols and are presented in the form of burnt branches and burnt dry grass.
    • Taste
      Powerful, rich, phenol, sweetness 7.5 out of 10, banana, creamy caramel, citrus zest, spices, peaches, where without salt and algae.
      Tropical fruits wake up with water and tannins "bulk".
    • Finish
      Dry, strict, fruity, moderately smoky

    Isn't worth his money.
    Personally, I like the 16-year-old
    (Amazon bottling) better.

  8. whiskydealer.de scored this whisky 89 points Member Senior

    With all 25s that I had in my glass to date, only 5 bottlings were worse.

    Nose: 87 after 30 minutes in the glass 88

    Taste: 90

    Departure: 89

    If I compare this with the 2007, which I rated 86 P and which I vividly remember because it has disappointed me the most so far, it succeeded.

  9. Whiskyisfordrinking did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Smokier and fruity, fresh. Intense smoky taste, stronger taste, powerful start. A bit bitter finish here.
