  1. Max Oleinik did not rate this whisky Expert Junior

    The whisky is a rare combination of bold peat flavor spiced with sweet
    sherry notes and rich oaky undertones. Creamy, smooth, full of character
    and complexity, the marriage of woods intertwines to form a perfectly
    balanced unity. Bottled in 2008 at cask strength (51.2% ABV), Laphroaig
    25 Year Old brilliantly fuses two different styles into a single,
    remarkable experience.
    • Nose
      At bottling strength the aroma seems quite closed giving only a rich,
      sweet scent but a touch of water releases all the multitude of different
      flavours. The initial sweet, sherry sweetness is quickly followed but
      the time-honoured Islay peat tang. After this opening burst of flavour
      there is a smooth fruit ripeness that complements the tang of salt in
      the background.
    • Taste
      The burst of peat that fills the mouth is quickly restrained by a sherry
      sweetness that slowly develops into spicy apple fruitiness
    • Finish
      Very long and warming leaving a distinct tang of Islay

  3. Dram Dracula scored this whisky 91 points Connoisseur

    I have a bottle of this opened for about a year now and I probably drink this once every couple of months. There are two words to describe this: rough and lovely. To be honest, that's how I like it.
