Laphroaig 1967 27 Years Signatory Vintage Cask 2957, an single cask independent release of Laphroaig bottled in 1994 for Signatory. It was distilled in 1967, the same year that the distillery was sold to Long John International, and bottled at cask strength.
Colour: pale gold. Nose: wowie, this is totally amazing again, albeit quite different from the Cadenhead’s. Even bigger and even more medicinal upfront, with huge notes of cough syrup mixed with orange marmalade but also less peat smoke. It really has something of the famous 10yo for Bonfanti, only at cask strength. Again, we have a little butter, then seaweed and seashells, then lemons, then hints of kippers, then myriads of other fruity notes (passion fruits just like in the 12yo, guavas, kumquats, small bitter cherries...) Extremely dense, concentrated and totally dazzling. Amazing (I think I’ll really run short of laudatory adjectives). Mouth: holy lama! It’s all there in a big basket, oysters, pepper, peat, lemons, oranges, tangerines, spices, butter pears, salt, quinces, citrons and dozens of other flavours. And the whole is so powerful! Now, if we really want to be a bit more analytical, this one is a little less complex than the Cadenhead’s but more full-bodied and more ‘direct’. And no need to tell you about the finish, it’s so long and salty that it may get embarrassing if you have to meet with important people in the following hours. So, is it better than the Cadenhead’s? Less good? Nah, the very same rating will do. SGP:678 – 96 points.
