1 bottle Laphroaig 14 Year Old. US Carlton import rotation 1953. No box. Early short screw capsule with branded lead foil wrapper. 4/5 US quarts. 91.4 US proof (equivalent to 45.7% abv). Level lower shoulder. Excellent condition for age.
This bottle came from a vendor in the USA who discovered a full sealed case in the crawl space of their grandfather's attick. It is a remarkable piece of Islay whisky history and one of the oldest bottles of Laphroaig to come to the open market in a very long time. Although the level has suffered some evaporation the liquid remains perfectly clear so there is a strong chance - given the more robust bottling strength - that it would present itself well in the glass. An incredible find and a truly historic bottle that offers the buyer the amazing oportunity to taste 1930s Laphroaig.
This is one of the 10 remaining bottles from the original wooden case, all of which - including the case itself - are offered for sale here in this auction. After this sale there will be no further opportunities to acquire these bottles.
