17 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 90.88 points

  1. Kantenmechaniker scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    The smoke is already quite reserved here for a Laphroaig. Unexpectedly sweet in the mouth, before then some oak strikes. Not a bad malt, but my darling the 21er he is not off.
    • Nose
      light salty smoke is there, in addition to yellow fruits, wet tobacco, the fruits have an exotic touch, slightly dry, with old Laphroaig I often grapefruit, in the direction it goes, but it was not so clear, nutmeg covered with a layer of chocolate and, in fact, some banana, a little bit bready, more crust, and yes, bananas clearly crushed, already slightly sour
    • Taste
      sweet sweet yellow fruit, some tartness of the grapefruit and yes also the sweet banana, beautiful combination, gradually the smoke becomes clearer, which is really sweet in the mouth, as if you had given a spoonful of honey, vanilla is also there, then the grapefruit stands out as a dominant note, takes a little the sweetness, which does not hurt.
    • Finish
      a little bit drier at the back with some oak, now also salt and also some chilli, a slight pleasant sharpness is added, light sweetness is still there, slightly fruity

  2. ctu scored this whisky 91 points Connoisseur

    Complex and massively peaty and smoky Laphroaig.
    • Nose
      92 92
      Smoke, peat, citruses, camphor, sherry, vanilla, yellow fruits and tannic oak.
    • Taste
      91 91
      Powerful and bittersweet. Yellow fruits, caramel, smoke, honey, citruses and spicy oak.
    • Finish
      91 91
      Long, oaky, smoky.

  5. dRambo scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    sweeter, thicker, more concentrated than the 18's, more spices, less "coastal" more cinnamon sugar cloves lastig, I prefer the 18's - it has more magic for me and costs about 1/3 to 1/4 - this one is here too close to old Bowmore 17
    • Nose
      syrupy intense sweetness, cinnamon and cloves, fine delicious very delicate smoke, vanilla, citrus notes, green tea, jasmine flowers, complex acidity with fine spicy tannins
    • Taste
      mildly salty, slightly sweet - much less sweet than the intense sweet nose, strong spicy oaky tingling, iodine, cinnamon and sugar with cloves, cooling mints on the tongue, oily texture, beautiful complex oak, smoke only like a spice all the way edge
    • Finish
      mild, spicy, fine slightly dusty oak, warming and cooling at the same time (mint)

  9. Segens scored this whisky 92 points Connoisseur

    Wow it is an excellent dram! It is so much better than the Laphroaig 18 but not as goos as the Laphroaig 21 which is for me a masterpiece of Islay whisky. And it is fully worth its money (300€)
    • Nose
      Still a lot of smoke even with 25 years of age. High complexity as you have smoke, then fruits, sweetness, smoke comes back, again honey, barbecue, then herbs ... Lovely and one of the best noses I have had
    • Taste
      A lot of herbs now which were decent in the nose less sweetness and also some oak now. Some sour grapes, grapefruit and oranges. Very nice!  
    • Finish
      The finish is not too long but sweet smoke remains positive in the throat.

  10. Goethe scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    Very enjoyable this expression of Laphroaig 25 years. There is some smoke left after 25 years, amazing. But very different types of smoke. A bit medicinal, some sweet smoke, some coals, some TCP, very complex concerning the smokiness character. Recommendable for Friends of Laphroaig and peat lovers.

    Concerning price/performance ratio: 7/10 (2015)
    • Nose
      Salt, smoke, iodine, vanilla, old wood, gingerbread.
    • Taste
      Sea salt, medicinal, coal smoke, iodine, citrus, sweet spices.
    • Finish
      Medium. Smoke, sweet smoke, smoke (TCP). Some vanilla and wood.
