• Laphroaig 32yo •

The Laphroaig distillery, as it continues to celebrate its 200th anniversary this year, has unveiled a special bottling aged for over three decades in a single cask type.

The Laphroaig 32 Year Old, according to the distillery, was matured solely in ex-Oloroso sherry casks, resulting in a deep mahogany colored whisky that was bottled at 93.4 proof. It heralds from the Islay region of Scotland, having been produced by an outlet which is one of the few whiskey producers in the world to still use traditional malting floors.

NOSE - Reminiscent of a Christmas fruit cake, the rich, sherry sweetness and the aroma of caramelized brown sugar are predominant. A drop of water reveals notes of cinnamon spiced red apples, with just a hint of bitter dark chocolate.
TASTE - The dark, bitter chocolate follows through to the palate, with nutmeg and intense, spicy oakiness. Adding a touch of water allows sweeter sherry flavors to come through with just a hint of salt tang and subtle peat smoke.
FINISH - Dry, long and lingering, sherried oak finish.
