Laphroaig 25 Year Old Cask Strength 2018 Edition
This 25 year old malt from Islay's popular Laphroaig distillery is a remarkable combination of whisky that has been aged in second-fill European oak Oloroso sherry casks and American white oak bourbon.
Laphroaig is the largest of the three heavyweight Islay distilleries in Kildalton, out-stripping the production capacity of neighbours, Ardbeg and Lagavulin, by over 1 million litres per annum. Despite its traditional appearance, Laphroaig was always a forward-thinking distillery. It was bottled as a single malt as early as the 1920s, an unfashionable option at the time, especially for a peated whisky. They were also shrewd in capitalising on post-Prohibition America to add trademark sweetness to their spirit through the use of imported ex-bourbon casks, and hired Scotland’s first ever female distillery manager, Bessie Williamson, in 1954. Laphroaig is one of only a handful of distilleries in Scotland to still use in-house maltings, providing them with 20% of their annual requirements, and contributing to the distillery’s unique flavour profile.
The bottling is non-chilled filtered, with notes of classic Islay peat complimented by oak, sherried sweetness and spice.
This is the 2018 edition of the annual cask strength 25 year old, and is bottled at 52%.
