Laphroaig 25 and Ardmore 30 Single Malts Arrive Stateside
Beam Global Spirits & Wine is offering whisky aficionados and investors two new limited-edition single malt bottlings for their spirits portfolios – Laphroaig 25 Year Old and Ardmore 30 Year Old. The Laphroaig (above, right) reveals the remarkable result of 25 years of aging in the finest Oloroso Sherry and American Oak casks. The whisky is a rare combination of bold peat flavor spiced with sweet sherry notes and rich oaky undertones. Creamy, smooth, full of character and complexity, it's bottled at cask strength and priced at $499.99 per bottle.
The Ardmore 30 (above, left) is crafted at the only Highland distillery that has consistently peated its barley since its inception. The whisky "weaves bold smoky flavor notes historically associated only with Islay malts into the rich Highland malt experience." Aged in former bourbon barrels and handmade quarter casks, it reveals a distinctive finish and rich, complex flavor. Only 1,428 bottles of the rare and exclusive Scotch, each individually numbered, are available at a suggested retail price of $449.99 as well.
