The 1815 Legacy Edition

Laphroaig 1815 is a tribute to two centuries of master distillers. Perfectly balanced with bitter, sweet and smoky flavours. Our legacy in a bottle.​


We don’t just remember them. We honour them with Laphroaig 1815. This legacy whisky was developed by the living legend and former Distillery Manager, John Campbell. It’s named after the year our craftspeople first set foot in the distillery, combining skills and techniques passed down generations. ​ ​ Its fine flavour begins on our traditional malting floor, where barley is gently dried and infused by thick smoke from our peat kilns. Then it’s mixed with crisp waters from the Kilbride Stream before being distilled. Matured in two types of oak to unite our signature smoky character with notes of charred raisin and caramelized dark fruit. ​ ​ A worthy dram that’s perfect for fans of our 10 Year Old malt who’d like to try something different. ​
