16 Year Old

70cl 48% vol

Laphroaig 16 year old whisky is a mellower expression of our famous Islay Scotch, slowly aged in ex-Bourbon barrels.

The additional years spent resting in American oak lends notes of leather and vanilla, which complement the signature rich and smoky flavors that Laphroaig whisky is famous for. A perfect example of how our peated whisky ages and matures over time, this dram is an ideal choice for the long evenings of late summer as they transition into the cozy nights of fall.

We originally released a small number of bottles in 2015 to celebrate our 200 year anniversary in 2015. It was so well-received that we're releasing another batch of this limited edition Scotch. It makes an ideal gift for collectors and fans of our standard 10 year old single malt who want something a little more special. Serve it neat, over ice or with a splash of water.

Gentle touch

Gently matured in ex-Bourbon barrels, Laphroaig 16 year old whisky is a mellow twist on our unforgettable Islay single malt Scotch. The signature medicinal and smoky flavors are met with floral notes of heather, the sweetness of honey and a touch of spicy chili.

The additional years spent patiently resting in American oak also impart a hint of leather, vanilla and treacle. It's best served simply — poured over ice, with a splash of cold water, or neat. As it's a limited release, it makes a thoughtful gift for whisky collectors and those looking for something unusual.

Taste that excites

It's also an ideal dram for fans of our standard 10 year old expression who want something more celebratory. Laphroaig 16 is made to a time-honored process, which starts with malted barley slowly dried and toasted over a fire fuelled by the Isle of Islay's native peat. It's then mixed with the clean, cool waters of the Kilbride stream before being distilled. The spirit is poured into our ex-Bourbon barrels — gently charred inside for a stronger flavor — and then left to mature in our warehouse on the rugged shores of the Atlantic Ocean.

This limited edition Scotch whisky was first released in 2015 to celebrate 200 years since the Laphroaig distillery first opened. With two centuries of passion and experience to draw upon, this whisky was extremely well-received. We decided to release another exclusive run so that more could sample this mellow edition of our quintessential peated whisky.
