This Laphroaig is created from carefully selected casks of each of our key styles. Mostly, these are historic styles, with one notable addition: the heart of the spirit is drawn from a final maturation in American oak casks – rarely used for scotch whisky.
With spirit selected by our master distiller from Quarter Cask, our PX Cask and Triple Wood (Oloroso sherry) and a final addition of 10 Year Old, it represents a subtle blending of peat, oak and sweetness.
Bottled at natural colour, the result is an exquisite Laphroaig with our trademark ‘peat reek’ matched by an additional layer of complexity and depth brought about by the fusion of the maturation styles and different oaks.
A sparkling gold with layers of colour.
Peat first, then ripe red fruits with a hint of dryness.
Sweet up front then classic dry, peaty, ashy flavours followed by a rich finish.
Long lingering and florally with marzipan and limes at the end.
