A new Laphroaig?

Postby Jan » Sun Dec 10, 2006 7:21 pm

Seems the Issue #60 thread is not much visited, so I thought I would repost my question here;

Page 25: Laphroaig vertical tasting: At the bottom Dominic writes: Roll on the new 25yo.

A slip of the tongue? A new 25yo Laphroaig in the works?

Sounds exciting - has anybody heard of this?

I've purchased off them before and got responses to all my mails and I too did it through English. Never had any issues with them. Maybe the english speaker is on leave :wink:

Hi Vitara7 ,
I've been told your better off ringing up to make an order in English at M du W ( from an American) , apparently they are very understanding (probably due to money being involved lol! ) .

Hi there,

I do not know how many bottles have been filled of the 1987 but I read that some German whisky sellers have a few bottles of it. You might not find them in the usual German internet shops though.

Jan, I also saw that remark about the 25yo, maybe replacing the 30yo. I've always thought Laphroaig needed something between 15 and 30 added to their range. Here's to hoping. I'm so fond of the Talisker 25yo C/S, maybe Laphroaig can release something to compete or should I say compeat. :roll:

Yeah, I agree - they lack something in the premium area pricewise. (The 30 & 40 year old is super premium in this context.)

Here's to hope.... :D

Hi there,

I heard somewhere that the Laphroaig 30 years which comes in a green coloured wooden box her in Germany is to be discontinued. A 25 could well be the replacement.
