Laphroaig Cask Strength is an Islay scotch, bottled at natural distillery strength and non-chill filtered

It has all the genuine depth, taste and texture associated with sampling whisky at source. Laphroaig whisky is matured in seasoned oak barrels, which are charred before filling to impart a slight sweet vanilla nuttiness. Laphroaig 10 year Cask Strength is barrier-filtered, only just, to remove the small char particles. This means you can enjoy exactly as we made it, with very little intervention.

In extremes of temperature and when you add water it may appear a little cloudy – this is the natural condition of a peated whisky of such uncompromising purity. Adding a little water releases a rich aroma of peat smoke with some sweetness and strong hints of the sea. Emphatic, full bodied and utterly unforgettable – we like to think it’s the purists' choice.  

 

  • Bottled at cask strength and barrier filtered for intensity of flavor 

  • Peated single malt scotch with notes of vanilla fudge and citrus peel 

  • Aged for ten years in ex-Bourbon barrels 

  • An ideal choice for purists, it's like tasting whisky at source
