Laphroaig, 25 yr old, 52%, Single Malt Scotch Whisky

$599.95 inc GST

700 ml, 52% abv, Scotland (ISLAY)

Laphroaig 25 year old has been created by marrying Laphroaig that has been matured in Oloroso sherry casks with Laphroaig that has been matured in ex-American bourbon barrels, both filled with newly distilled Laphroaig spirit from day one.
When you join the sherried, oaky flavours from the second fill sherry casks with the creamy, smooth, sweet flavours from the bourbon barrels you create the magic that is Laphroaig 25 Year Old. Bottled at cask strength, it is a perfect fusion of two different styles of maturation flavours, made even smoother by the quarter century it has been gently maturing.
