Laphroaig 32 Year Old

The 200th anniversary of Laphroaig celebrations continue with the release of a special and very limited release of Laphroaig 32 Year Old.

Laphroaig 32 Year Old

The Islay single malt is matured exclusively in ex-Oloroso casks for 32 long years and unlike other expressions, it has a deep mahogany colour reminiscent of Christmas fruitcake. Only 100 cases are destined for Australia and will be available at the end of October.

Laphroaig 32 Year Old Tasting Notes

(per media release)

Colour: Deep mahogany

Nose: Reminiscent of a Christmas fruit cake, the rich, sherry sweetness and the aroma of caramelised brown sugar are predominant. A drop of water reveals notes of cinnamon spiced red apples, with just a hint of bitter dark chocolate.

Palate: The dark, bitter chocolate follows through to the palate, with nutmeg and intense spicy, oakiness. Adding a touch of water allows sweeter, sherry flavours to come through with just a hint of salt tang and subtle peat smoke.

Finish: Dry, long and lingering, sherried oak finish.

Laphroaig 32 Year Old is available in selected Dan Murphy’s and independent retailers at RRP $1500 AUD.
