    Laphroaig 15 has always flirted along the line of great and spectacular in the minds connoisseurs, documenting some truly remarkable ratings, including one from the late Michael Jackson. It is the richer, more mature and succulent elder brother of the robust 10 Year Old, a combination of the Kilbride Dam water with its iodine character and peaty malt. Mildly smoky, with sweet, warm undertones, and just a hint of the sea.

    Other reviews... Nose: Phenol, tar, sulphur. Palate: A deceptive moment of peppermint sweetness and grassiness, then an explosion of sulphur, burning peat and Islay intensity. Finish: Round, dry, long, warming. Comment: Lively. Full of flavours. Multi-faceted. 43% Alc./Vol. Rating: 9/10
