AN INTRODUCTION TO LAPHROAIG
Presenting Laphroaig® Select. This endearing expression will sit you down for a one-to-one with each of our key styles, selected from historic casks. The result is a subtle blend of trademark Laphroaig® character, thanks to a fusion of maturation styles and different oaks. This dram was actually selected by many friends who made the trip to our distillery. We offered each visitor a selection of different blends to seek out the ideal introduction to over 200 years of our whisky-making. This particular blend was voted the clear winner and has been bottled for you to enjoy today.
UNMISTAKABLE PEAT WITH A SOFT TOUCH
After two centuries of bottling intense peaty whisky that packs a punch, we’ve developed a reputation for powerful drams – and with good reason. But when you try Laphroaig® Quarter Cask, you’ll see we’re big softies really. This expression offers an irresistible creamy mouthfeel thanks to the double maturation in casks made of sweet American oak. After aging in our standard ex-Bourbon barrels this whisky is transferred to quarter-sized casks and left to rest in our warehouse on the Atlantic shore. The use of the smaller cask size increases contact with the oak for a soft and velvety edge to complement Laphroaig’s distinctive peatiness.
