Laphroaig 32 Year Old Islay Single Malt Whisky 700ml
Laphroaig 32 Year Old has a very elegant mouthfeel, well integrated smoke infused with prominent cocoa and plenty of cinnamon spice. The finish is very long, with notes of Christmas cake coming through.
On the far edge of the Scotch whisky map, it's supposed that the art of distillation was first brought to Islay by Irish monks. Being remote, it’s an art that flourished in the hands of the islanders, whose illegal operations tested the resolve and means of the tax man. Eventually, the law relaxed, various whisky makers set up legitimate distilleries, among them a pair of farmers, Donald and Alexander Johnston, who in 1815 founded their distillery on the island’s south coast. Laphroaig, so called after its location, ‘broad hollow by the bay.’ It would remain in family hands for the next 139 years.
Laphroaig's 200th anniversary celebrations have been leading up to this extraordinary bottling of rare single malt Scotch whisky from Islay all through 2015. Just 5,880 bottles of this exclusively first-fill Oloroso Sherry cask matured 32 year old Laphroaig have been produced.
