Laphroaig 1969 Sestante 19 Year Old

An amazing vintage Laphroaig from one of their golden eras, the late 1960s.

The Sestante import company was founded in the 1970s by Ernesto Mainardi, and he bottled his first single casks under the name in 1985. Alongside his contemporary, Silvano Samaroli, Mainardi pioneered giving his customers a choice of both standard 40-46% bottlings, and cask strength releases from the same casks. Along with his other brand, Silver Seal, Mainardi's bottlings are incredibly sought after.

Distilled in 1969 and bottled at 19 years old, these ship label bottlings of Laphroaig are a classic Sestante series. This is one of 5 releases, the first of which was produced in 1985. This, and its cask strength equivalent were the final additions, bottled in 1988.
