Product details

Founded back in 1815, Laphroaig (pronounced ‘La-FROYg’) might be one of the most distinctive Islay whiskies. There are many factors that contribute to its unique flavour profile. Its coastal location is one, as well as the high moss content of its peat. Unusually, the distillery still has its own floor maltings, which also contribute to the tar-like, smoky character of the whisky.

The brand generally favours bourbon casks, and this expression (which launched just last month!) was matured in both American oak ex-bourbon casks and refill ex-Oloroso sherry casks, as well as being treated to a finish in European oak ex-Oloroso sherry casks for between 12 to 18 months. Those medicinal, smoky flavours of the whisky are glorious with the sweetness of the bourbon and honeyed spices from the sherry casks. It’s bold, but wonderfully balanced!
