Laphroaig 25 year old Cask Strength Islay Single Malt Whisky 750ml

SKU #1049367

95 points Malt Advocate, "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 oak-aged 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." John Hansell -Malt Advocate

Wow! For those of us out there that are peat-lovers, this one certainly does not disappoint! Upon first pass of nosing the Laphroaig 25 Year Old, I found hints of apple crisp, vanilla bean, heather, dried apricot and fig, floral honey, coconut, ginger snap cookie, and blanched almond. Of course, there are the usual peaty smokiness and maritime atmosphere notes. For those of you familiar with the briny, kippery, seaweed-y aromas along the Atlantic coast on a warm summer day, you can find these notes in this dram (we don't get those strong odors along the Pacific coast, unfortunately!). All of these aromas translate well onto the palate, and with a nice, smooth finish. This is perhaps my favorite dram of all time (for now), since all the wonderful notes that Laphroaig is known for come together with lots of dried fruit and soft vanilla. It gets a score of "5" easily.
