25 YO Cask Strength Whisky - 2022 Edition

We take nothing for granted when crafting our single malt whiskies, they all get the same care and attention, and 2022's 25 Year Old Cask Strength is no different. The aging in bourbon barrels and Oloroso sherry butts enrich Year 2022’s 53.4% vol of Laphroaig 25 Year Old Cask Strength with enduring flaovour and a smoothness that we know you expect from our 25 Year Old Cask Strength.


To reward your purchase of 25 YO Cask Strength Whisky, you will have a chance to win access to an intimate online tasting master class with Barry MacAffer, distillery manager. More detail on the terms and conditions here. 


What reward is most befitting a longsuffering 25 year wait? We think it's certainly the 2022 Laphroaig 25 Year Old Cask Strength single malt. This exquisite 53.4% vol whisky blends the famously rugged Laphroaig flavours with a mellow sweetness achieved after maturing for a quarter of a century in ex-Bourbon casks and large Oloroso sherry butts.

For an experience equivalent to tasting it at the source, the whisky is extracted, filtered, and bottled at its natural strength – this takes place after the maturing of the mix. A smooth mouthfeel is achieved with the notes of spices, peat smoke, apple, and vanilla, all of which together create a well-rounded, full-bodies presence on the palate. Without the patience required for this dram, the finish would not have the same layering and long finish and it would not be the premium whisky it is known to be.
