Laphroaig 25 Year Old Cask Strength Reviews

Incredible!!


This is the Laphroaig 25yr, 2009 edition, cask strength.

ABV 51%

Color: light gold, kind of yellow

Nose: quite sweet, with only hints of the peat emerging after 25 years. Christmas cake of some kind always seem to appear for me in older peated scotch. On our second dram we added water, and the smell changed too very sweet, nutty, fruity, and hints of sherry. Cinnamon was apparent with and without water.

Taste: Dry at first, but very easy to drink and tasty. The sweetness is very apparent, and the peat is hidden but still there - not smokiness mind you, it was as if the water used to make the scotch was itself peated. After adding a few drops of water the peat came out more, along with a light fruit punch flavor that was great. I personally love to hold whisky in my mouth and on my tongue for a very long time, sometimes 30 seconds or more, and this was quite easy to hold and only got better.

Finish: Incredibly long lasting - with some peated scotch the peat comes up after you swallow it, this was interesting in that the real peat flavours came the second you swallow at the back of your tongue. Very warm and spicy.

Well, that's it, I've turned into a peat scotch lover completely - with Laphroaig being likely my favorite scotch across the board. If anyone can get a dram of this, drink it slow and enjoy, it's truly a work of art.

95/100 - I can't imagine old peated scotch can get much better :)
