Color
Pale gold
Nose

leichter salziger Rauch ist da, dazu kommen gelbe Früchte, nasser Tabak, die Früchte haben einen exotischen Touch, leicht herb, bei alten Laphroaig habe ich oft Grapefruit, in die Richtung geht es, hie aber nicht so deutlich, Muskatnuss umhüllt mit einer Schicht Schokolade, und tatsächlich auch etwas Banane, leicht brotig, mehr die Kruste, und ja jetzt auch ganz deutlich zerdrückte Banane, schon leicht säuerlich

Taste

zunächst süße gelbe Frucht, etwas Herbheit von der Grapefruit und ja auch die süße Banane, schöne Kombi, nach und nach wird der Rauch deutlicher, der ist richtig süß im Mund, als hätte man einen Löffel Honig dazu gegeben, Vanille ist auch dabei, dann tut sich die Grapefruit als dominante Note hervor, nimmt ein wenig die Süße, was nicht schadet.

Finish

hintenraus etwas trockener mit nun doch etwas Eiche, jetzt auch Salz und auch etwas Chilli, eine leichte angenehme Schärfe kommt dazu, leichte Süße ist noch da, leicht fruchtig

Comments

Der Rauch ist für einen Laphroaig schon ziemlich zurückhaltend hier. Unerwartet süß im Mund, bevor dann doch etwas Eiche zuschlägt. Kein schlechter Malt, aber an meinen Liebling den 21er kommt er nicht dran.

Color
Pale straw
Nose

sirupartige intensive Süße, Zimt und Nelken, feiner leckerer sehr zarter Rauch, Vanille, Zitrusnoten, Grüner Tee, Jasminblüten, komplexe Eichensäure mit feinwürzigen Tanninen

Taste

mild salzig, leicht süß - viel weniger süß, als die intensiv süße Nase, kräftig würzig eichenholzig prickelnd, Iod, Zimt und Zucker mit Nelken, kühlende Minznote an der Zunge, ölige Textur, schöne vielschichtige Eiche, Rauch nur noch wie ein Gewürz ganz am Rand

Finish

mild, würzig, feine leicht staubige Eiche, wärmend und kühlend gleichzeitig(Minze)

Comments

süßer, dickflüssiger, konzentrierter als der 18er, mehr Gewürze, weniger "coastal" mehr Zimt-Zucker-Nelken lastig, ich ziehe den 18er vor - der hat mehr Magie für mich und kostet etwa 1/3 bis 1/4 - dieser hier ist mir zu nahe am alten Bowmore 17

Color
Old gold
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.

Comments

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

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.

Comments
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)
