Laphroaig ’25 Years Old’ Single Malt Scotch Whisky (Bessie Williamson Limited Edition)

RM2,988.0

This super-premium single malt Scotch celebrates the life of Bessie Williamson, the first woman to own and run a Scotch whisky distillery in the 20th century. She came to embody everything we know and love about Laphroaig; warm and rich with that unmistakable Islay character. Aged in refill barrels and American oak hogsheads, the spirit holds its own as it slowly mellows over a quarter century.

Aged for a quarter century, this expression of our unmistakable single malt combines characteristic peat smoke with flavors of acacia honey, black pepper and sweet herbs. Exclusive to global travel retail outlets, and packaged inside a hardback book, it’s a must-have for any collector.
This Islay whisky celebrates the life and times of Bessie Williamson. The first woman to own and run a Scotch whisky distillery in the 20th Century, she more than held her own in a male dominated industry. Warm, rich and with unmistakable Islay character, this expression embodies everything we know and love about Laphroaig and its first female distillery manager.
The focus of this expression is on the natural character of this exceptional Islay single malt. It’s aged in refill barrels and American oak hogsheads, which impart less of their own flavor. They simply allow the whisky to gently mellow over time. This allows the natural features of Islay – such as the peat that the malted barley is toasted over and the crisp waters of the Kilbride stream – show their effects. As a result, this rounded single malt speaks of the true nature of Laphroaig.
Bessie is just one of the incredible people who have contributed to making Laphroaig what it is today – a richly flavored Scotch whisky. Since 1815, our master distillers and blenders have been innovating new ways to mature our single malts.
eaty with spicy and floral notes. Sweeter notes of pear drops, green apples and bonbons that add to a sweet malty backcloth. Salty tar oil paste, sweet herbs and spices, acacia honey, tomato leaves and black pepper. Coastal notes with peat sweetness and earthiness bring the classic Islay spirit. Warming and long lasting finish with floral and coastal notes.
The bottle is packed inside a hardback book, telling the story of Bessie and her role at Laphroaig. An exceptional gift for whisky enthusiasts, it should be served neat or over ice.

Description

On the far edge of the Scotch whisky map, it’s supposed that the art of distillation was first brought to Islay by Irish monks. Being remote, it’s an art that flourished in the hands of the islanders, whose illegal operations tested the resolve and means of the tax man. Eventually, the law relaxed, various whisky makers set up legitimate distilleries, among them a pair of farmers, Donald and Alexander Johnston, who in 1815 founded their distillery on the island’s south coast. Laphroaig, so called after its location, ‘broad hollow by the bay.’ It would remain in family hands for the next 139 years. Find out more about the history of Laphroaig below, using the scroller on the timeline to travel back in time.
