The cask strength bottling of Laphroaig 25yo is a very different beast to the old 25yo (and in our opinion, upping the strength is a big improvement). Rich and smouldering, with a big coal hit and a lingering seaweed character. We said at the time that this was tremendous stuff, and now it's only gone and won the IWSC Trophy for Best Cask Strength Single Malt.Tasting Notes (1)
Tasting Notes by Tim F
Quite farmyardy to begin with, then wet flax, linen and a delicious sooty smoke - the signature Laphroaig coaldust aroma. Old school Laphroaig of the best kind.
Richer than expected, with both a big coal hit and a syrupy, sherried sweetness. Very seaweedy. Develops woodsmoke. Power, sweetness and complex peat / smoke characteristics, with a reassuring weight on delivery. An accomplished, polished dram.
Very long, with a big spicy tingle and the sweetness coming through. Long coal burn. Salty. Wow, this really is long. Terrific.
Much, much better, in this reviewer's opinion, than the first batch of 25yo which was bottled at 40%. The extra strength gives this dram a far more assertive personality. This is classic old Laphroaig at the top of its game.

I got a bottle of this about 8 months ago. I am a newcomer to single malt, only having discovered it in the last couple of years. This was the first expensive bottle I invested in,I have since added several bottles around the same price point and I can honestly say this is still the tops for me. It's exceptional, and gets better everytime I go back to it.
Simply spectacular, will leave you speechless. Heaven on earth. Was lucky enough to find a bottle at Heathrow duty free. Took me about .001 seconds to pull out 299 pound sterling. Much cheaper here at whisky exchange.
Most prominent tasting note on the nose and palate is of smoked pears. What a dram, only a couple boxes left here at laphroaig.
