Triple aged in ex-Bourbon barrels, quarter casks and Pedro Ximénez sherry butts. Discover PX Cask and its layers of flavour with fruity notes, ginger kick and signature smoky aroma

TRIPLE THE TASTE​

Patience and harmony define this standout Islay single malt. Following our traditional distilling process carried down over generations, a triple maturation process lends a layered complexity and smooth texture to our Laphroaig® PX Cask.​ ​ We peat-smoke malted barley before it’s distilled with water from the nearby Kilbride Stream, then aged in American ex-Bourbon barrels. The spirit is then transferred to 19th Century-style quarter casks, adding a velvety texture to the whisky. From here, the Scotch finishes in Pedro Ximénez sherry butts, where it draws rich character from the wood. ​ ​ Exemplifying our renowned, rugged flavours of peat smoke and seaweed, the Laphroaig® PX Cask makes room for notes of raisin, sultana and liquorice to shine. Sip neat or splash in some water to draw out the nutty marzipan aromas.
