A superbly-aged example of Laphroaig at its silky-smoky best.
 
Laphroaig distillery was founded in 1815 by Donald and Alexander Johnston and is located in Port Ellen on Islay. For a long while there’s been frenzy for Laphroaig’s Scotch. Rumor has it that Prince Charles of Wales himself is a big fan of the brand. But no matter what, Laphroaig is the Islay Single Malt by which all others are judged. They are the standard-bearers for the hearty, smoky style that Islay is famous for. Their core line up has no fewer than a dozen Single Malt drams plus a host of special releases and travel retail specialty editions.
 
Laphroaig 25 Year Old is story of a signature Islay Spirit spending a long time — a VERY long time — in seasoned oak casks. That means a Single Malt aged for a full quarter century in second-fill Oloroso Sherry and ex-Bourbon casks. Not only is this a testament to the amazing strength and quality of oak, but to the patience to wait that long before cracking it open. And they want you to taste every drop of character, so it’s bottled at an impressive 51.4% ABV without chill-filtering or any other shenanigans. Come and get it!

Appearance / Color
Antique Gold

Nose / Aroma / Smell
The aroma is deep and wonderfully complex with vanilla, raisins, and dried apricots on one hand and smoked pepper bacon and toasted biscuits on the other.

Flavor / Taste / Palate
The contrast on the palate is fascinating between a silky, creamy mouth-feel and a light fruitiness against the savory notes of sea salt, iodine, and campfire.

Finish
The finish is long-lasting, warming, and spicy.

Scotch Whisky is seldom aged in new barrels. Bourbon and Tennessee Whiskey casks are usually used for maturation. In addition to that, Whisky is often matured or finished in various wine casks such as Sherry or Port.
Can Scotch go bad? Technically, an unopened bottle of Scotch can last forever. Air is the only true evil to Whisky; once the liquid is oxidized it is no longer immortal. After opening, as long as you store your Whisky in a cool, dry place, it will last another 5 years.
Scotland is home to more than 20 million casks of maturing Whisky. That’s four for every person living there. Nuts!
Single Malt Scotch Whisky is made in Scotland using a pot still distillation process at a single distillery, with malted barley as the only grain ingredient. It must be matured in oak casks in Scotland for at least three years (most Single Malts are matured longer, though).
Single malt stands for around 10% of the Scotch market. This is a malt containing only one grain, legally required to be barley in Scotland, and made at a single distillery.

A blended Scotch is a combination of different malts from different distilleries. It is typically made from grain Whisky but does include malt Whisky to give it a more complex body.
Maker's Mark is Laphroaig's main source for barrels.
