Laphroaig 25 Year Old Cask Strength Single Malt Whisky

Former Bourbon barrels and Oloroso sherry butts continue to mark our 2021 25 Year Old Cask Stength whisky. Supreme smoothness in texture and touched with a distinguished flavour provides you a 51.9% vol of Laphroaig 25 Year Old Cask Strength single malt whisky – still proving that patience pays off.

Supremely smooth and utterly exquisite, Laphroaig 25 Year Old Cask Strength single malt whisky is a dram worth savoring. This exquisite 51.9% vol whisky blends famously rugged Laphroaig flavours with a mellow sweetness after a quarter of a century in ex-Bourbon casks and barrels once filled with Oloroso sherry.

When the whisky is finished maturing, extraction, filtration, and bottling of the whisky produce a taste similar to that at the source, with full strength. Peat smoke and spice offer remarkable flavors with the balance of vanilla and apple that are layered and full-bodied, and they coat the palate smoothly for a unique mouthfeel. This would be unattainable without the proper patience to mature this premium whisky for the layered and long finish that sets it apart.

Colour

Pale Gold, a peek of the complexity created by the careful raging process.

Nose

Restrained smoky flavours and aromas of sweet vanilla, wood spice and smoked bacon, plus a hint of dried fruit.

Palate

Layered and creamy, with flavours of pepper, iodine and peat smoke along with hints of green apple.

Finish

Lingering with waves of smoke and a peppery conclusion

Maturation

This cask strength single malt spends a quarter of a century in ex-bourbon casks and Oloroso Sherry barrels.
