Laphroaig 25 Year Old
LS90-176*

Laphroaig 25 year old has been lovingly created by marrying Laphroaig that has been matured in Oloroso Sherry casks with Laphroaig that has been matured in ex-American Bourbon Barrels; both were filled with newly distilled Laphroaig spirit from day one.

When you marry together the sherried, oaky flavours from the 2nd fill European Oak Oloroso Sherry Casks with the creamy, smooth, sweet flavours from the ex American Oak Bourbon barrels you end up with a marriage made in heaven that’s called Laphroaig 25 Years Old. Bottled at 40% ABV, it is a perfect fusion of these two most different styles of maturation flavours, made even smoother by the 25 years it has had gently maturing.

Laphroaig

Laphroaig distillery is the first distillery in a row of three. Laphroiag, Lagavulin and then Ardbeg. Laphroiag Distillery is steeped in history, it has a very nice history museum that makes you feel like you have gone back in time. Laphroiag is one of the distilleries in Scotland that still has its own floor malting’s. The distillery still make about 25% of their own malted barley and the rest they get from Port Ellen malting’s just down the road. Being able to see the floor malting’s done by hand emphasizes the dying art of floor malting’s done by hand and how much hard work goes into doing it. Islay is a magnificent island and is a must see by any true whisky enthusiast.


Colour: Bright Red Gold. Nose: At bottling strength the aroma seems quite closed giving only a rich, sweet scent but a touch of water releases all the multitude of different flavours. The initial sweet, sherry sweetness is quickly followed but the time-honoured Islay peat tang. After this opening burst of flavour there is a smooth fruit ripeness that complements the tang of salt in the background. Body: Rich round and full. Palate: The burst of peat that fills the mouth is quickly restrained by a sherry sweetness that slowly develops into spicy apple fruitiness. Finish: Very long and warming leaving a distinct tang of Islay.
