- Laphroaig 25 Year Old Platinum Selection
Douglas Laing Old & Rare Platinum Selection.
Single cask refill hogshead distilled February 1986 and bottled September 2011.
Just 90 numbered bottles.
Opens sweetly spiced with a creamy – honey and polished oak character. This Laphroaig requires little or no water…, just give it some time to “chambré” in the glass – then on the palate detect a surprisingly sweet trait before mouth coating waves of peat plus smoke and rich spices appear. The finish is long - carrying soft chewy tar followed by a lemon & honey cough drop quality plus a lingering BBQ charred bell peppers style.
