A fabulous 25 year old Laphroaig, and an official bottling too. This stuff is at natural cask strength, and it's a huge whisky with loads of character. It was also awarded the title "Best Cask Strength Single Malt" at the International Wine and Spirits Competition.
Nose: Rich, coastal and tangy. Driftwood, sea air and old ropes. Beeswax, honeycomb and iodine. A little malt.
Palate: Rich and smoky, coastal, tar, treacle, sherried peels, iodine and seaweed. Sticking plasters and walnut loaf.
Finish: Long and spicy with hints of cinnamon, coal tar and fruit.
