Zesty oak and warm peat smoke top notes, with sweet undertones, reminiscent of fresh nutmeg and toasted almonds. Faintly salty. Laphroaig 15yo is a smoother and more elegant elder sibling to the robust 10 year-old.

Hanging on to my very last bottle dearly; saving for retirement day - soon, my friends, soon ! Meantime, i will use 50/50 Laph-QC + Laph-18 for good entertainment...

Got myself a bottle back in '09, so far it has been the "best" I've had in overall. The price is a bit steep these days, but it truly is a good drink.

the whisky was unbranded no later than 2011..if you got it, you are holding an extinct brand..nice going!

Great stuff. Looks like it's going up in price too (should have grabbed two back then...).

This is a superb whisky, have tried the 10y old the Quarter cask and the 18y old, they are all wonderful but this has the best of all of them. Such a pity it has been discontinued. The 18 y old is smoother but the 15 has the better flavour.

Delicate, complex, but still reminds you that it's Laphroaig your drinking.

A smoky and salty, yet mellow Islay single malt. Back when I knew almost nothing about whisky (nowadays I know a tiny bit) this was the very best in the world for me. Since then I've tasted several better single malts, but Laphroaig 15yo still has a place in my heart. I recently opened my last bottle and while I have to admit the peaty taste is not so special anymore and the finish should be much stronger, it's still a very good whisky. Goodbye dear! 8 out of 10

I was going to buy this until I heard it was HRH Prince Charles's favourite. Given his taste in Ladies I demurred.

I've had the 10 Year Cask Strength and the Quarter Cask, but this one takes it all. I was hesitant at first to buy this, given the mixed reviews I've seen and heard. However, after sipping it for the first time I was amazed. Shares the fantastic depth of the 10 Year CS and it has a hint of the fresh seaweed aftertaste I notice in my Ardbegs (also a hint of green apple). This dram just fell into second place behind my Ardbeg (though very very close to taking the crown).

Best Scotch I've had yet...

It's already happened Julo. 15yo has been replaced by 18yo. When stocks are gone, that's it. No more being produced.

I've heard 15 y.o. is going to be discontinued by the distillery. Is this a speculation or a fact?

Wonderful with classic Laphroaig peatiness, yet mellow finish.
