Laphroaig 25 Year Old 2016
70cl / 48.6% abv
Matured for more than a quarter of a century, this 2016 release of the popular Islay Single Malt marries the signature Islay peat with sweet vanilla notes from the American bourbon casks in which it was matured.
Nose: sherry to the fore with a peaty tang not far behind.
Palate: bursts of peat subdued by sherried sweetness before a spicy apple fruitiness takes over.
Finish: very long and slightly dry.
