- ABV 45.1%
This is the highly sought after cask strength expression of Laphroaig's celebrated 25 Year Old. The 2013 bottling was awarded the title "Best Cask Strength Single Malt" at the International Wine and Spirits Competition. Matured in a combination of Oloroso Sherry and x-Bourbon casks, it has garnered nothing but superlatives from the blogosphere. Expect one of the great Islay whisky experiences of your drinking career! Non chill filtered, and yes, 45.1%alc./vol. is cask strength after two and a half decades in barrel. Very limited stocks.Other reviews... [2011 edition tasted]. 96.5 points - Jim Murrays Whisky Bible 2015 ...[2008 edition tasted] The flavors evolve on the nose and palate, with peat kiln smoke, fresh asphalt, damp earth warehouses, morning-after campfire ash, and old boat dock contrasting nicely with toffee apple, crème caramel, delicate raspberry preserve, and dried citrus. Long, smoky, spicy, briny, seaweed, dirty martini-tinged finish. This whisky comes from a combination of both sherry and bourbon casks, and the marriage works. I also like that it retains some of its youthful brashness, while showing the depth that maturity affords a whisky. A delicious, well-balanced, old-fashioned Laphroaig.(Reviewing this whisky gave me an excuse to open a “fresh” bottle of its predecessor, the 30 year old, and here are my thoughts. The 30 year old is softer, mellower, drier, and more debonair. The 25 year old is bolder, more youthful, more dynamic, richer, and sweeter -- bottling at cask strength really helps here. Both whiskies are very nice, but quite different in personality.) 95 points
