Whisky Reviews for Laphroaig 1997 IM

3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 84.70 points

  1. wisekycourse scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    a dram where peat does not "break" all the other aromas, where the notion of subtlety (chocolate-grapefruit) seduced me!
    a lot of wood as fruity and iodized.
    • Nose
      lemon, peat, fine spices, then orange citrus scent
    • Taste
      peat, intense lime, pepper, a smell of grapefruit, wood and chocolate aroma when you open a tablet!
    • Finish
      sweetness of the peat, the lemon becomes less strong with a woody return, medium to long finish

  2. KayMeertens scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    Blind tasting of a sample from Erik. Didn't discover any rum influence to be honest.
    • Nose
      Lime, fig, peat, vanilla, toffee, apricot, cactus, mint and a little white pepper. After a while the lime turns towards 7Up.
    • Taste
      Peat, gingerbread, lime, pepper, dark chocolate and toffee.
    • Finish
      Peat, lime, gingerbread, toffee, nutmeg and Badedas bath foam.

  3. Erik Elixir scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    N: pepper, briny and seaweed
    T: citrus, peat, tea and pepper
    F: light some fruits and peat smoke
