Laphroaig, 25 Year Old (700ml)
Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Laphroaig 25 Year Old is an uncommon and noteworthy non-chill filtered malt.
With spirits aged in ex-bourbon casks, carefully matured for 25 years, the result is a subtle and elegant whisky featuring notes of sweet vanilla, oak and signature Islay peat smoke.
The exceptional character of this expression, intertwined with Laphroaig’s signature flavours, makes it truly one to savour.
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 by 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.
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.
