This rare “Exclusively for Friends of Laphroaig” half bottle is one we picked up at the distillery last we were there, and we’re going back soon—so keep an eye here for more dreamy drams from that part of the world!
Laphroaig 25 Years is a good whisky, but it didn’t have the oomph I was expecting and I didn’t get much of the Oloroso coming through. Still, as you might imagine, it was a good whisky. Both the aroma and palate had an overall character I could best describe as a campfire in an orchard. It was sweet and smoky with this oily nature that flowed from nose to finish.
