Whisky Reviews for Laphroaig 1997 SV

6 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 90.09 points

  1. Archer scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    Very nice Laphroaig-bottling from the refill Sherry Hogshead. Not overwhelming sherry matured, but the Brennereicharakter complementary.
    • Nose
      91 91
      Red grapes, raisins and dried dates, closely interwoven with a subtle, yet haunting peat smoke note.
      The fruits are sweet and fat. Some furniture polish pulls through, old wood shimmers in the background. Earthy and loamy with spice that appears more and more after a while: cinnamon, cloves, pepper. Mocha beans, chocolate. On this nose you can be stuck.
    • Taste
      90 90
      Creamy and slightly spicy on the beginning. The smoke also discreet on the tongue. Right at the beginning, a sweet touch sets on the tongue - smoked gummy bears. Dried lavender flowers, some violet scent. With spicy wood and tart herbs, so that the sweet and fragrant aromas do not prevail. Milk coffee, cinnamon, clove powder.
    • Finish
      90 90
      Medium to long, slightly dry and still with a pleasant smoky note of lavender. Old wood, subtle peat smoke. Chocolaty.

  2. ARDBERG scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    A Laphroaig of the good old days with just the right sherry influence, smoke and peat. Unlike the overwooded and oversmoked stuff of late designed to mask youth.

    Too bad that they don't make stuff like this anymore.

    @christhewiz: great notes for an excellent Laphroaig!

  4. chrizthewiz scored this whisky 93 points Expert Junior

    Oldschool sherry'ed Laphroaig at its best. Leathery, pungent peat, smoke and briny seashore notes upfront. Also stewed dark fruits, various oriental spices, liqourice and menthol cough medicine. Very silky, elegant mouthfeel even at 54% ABV. A definitive laphroaig and a must try Imho.

  6. Kantenmechaniker scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    A nice complex whisky that you should not just drink on the side.
    • Nose
      very intense nose, directly a full load of sherry, and also cinnamon, light muff, smoked bacon, still quite smoky, milk chocolate in the background, some salt, old leather, quite spicy, slightly peppery,
    • Taste
      very intense, creamy, very sweet, liquid plump, again salty behind, the smoke is dry and intense, envelops the rest, nutty, also cinnamon, a lot of oak, a nice combination of sweetness and the dry, almost tart smoke
    • Finish
      behind the smoke is clearer and gradually displaces the remaining aromas, very pleasant with nut and dark fruit and still a slight sweetness on the palate
