25 YO Cask Strength Whisky - 2023 Edition

Carefully crafted from our own floor-malted barley, non-chill filtered, and full of flavour, our 2023 25 Year Old Cask Strength whisky, bottled at 47.3% vol, is a sip as close to the source as you can get.

Quote from Distillery Manager Barry Macaffer

“What you really want to do with the 25 is hold it in your mouth that wee bit longer, allow all your senses, your palate, everything to absorb these incredible flavours.”

25 Year Old Cask Strength tasting with Barry

Distillery Manager Barry MacAffer was one of the first to taste the new 25 Year Old Cask Strength: “These releases are always different, always unique, and always a surprise. I’m always excited when these new ones come out.”


An evolution of the flavours in the classic Laphroaig 10 we all know and love, our 25 Year Old Cask Strength started its journey in 1998 – well before the age of social media and hyperconnectivity. Matured for a quarter of a century, non-chill filtered and bottled at cask strength to preserve its full flavour, our 2023 expression is a truly powerful one.

In its teenage years in the ex-bourbon casks, there is a prominent sweetness of red berries and vanilla. Then, like many strong-natured teenagers, this spirit emerges into its twenties slightly softened and more well-rounded. Now, the fruitier notes have time to come to the fore and blend with the ever-present smokiness.

Wave after wave of tropical flavour with a long, smoky finish and quintessential Laphroaig aftertaste – these historic and evolved flavours will surely appeal to whisky connoisseurs around the world wanting to savour a taste experience 25 years in the making.
