This Laphroaig® 30 Year Old is perfect for single malt enthusiasts who enjoy savouring the finer things in life
  • Enthusiasts of super-premium single malt select their whisky for their own pleasure. They look for skilfully made products that they can savour, and value the history and heritage in the brands that they choose.
  • These sophisticated drinkers of single malt are more knowledgeable about whisky and therefore seek complex flavours like the rich peat found in Laphroaig®.

 

DISCOVER THE LASTING LEGACY OF IAN HUNTER STORY - BOOK 1: UNIQUE CHARACTER. A LAPHROAIG® 30 YEAR OLD CASK STRENGTH SINGLE MALT WHISKY

Book One: Unique Character reflects Ian Hunter’s formidable character and represents everything that is traditional about Laphroaig ® today. Aged in first-fill bourbon barrels, this non-chill filtered whisky is beautifully rounded with a combination of sweet, zesty and medicinal notes. This is where Ian Hunter’s influence is most obvious, as it was his decision to introduce American white oak barrels into the maturation process of Laphroaig ®. Over time, the original smokiness of this 30-year-old whisky has become less of an assault on the senses. Beautifully married with the sweet vanilla notes enhanced with ageing, the whisky develops into a more mature, well-rounded dram. This is a liquid worth savouring – and a Laphroaig ® worthy of Ian Hunter himself.
