Four Oak

A delicate blend of single malts from our storehouse aged in no less than four different wood casks. The result? A full-bodied whisky with complex, rich flavour and velvety texture.

FOUR TIMES THE FLAVOUR

Our storied tradition of distilling wouldn’t exist without a little imagination. Now the remarkably smooth Laphroaig® Four Oak is blazing a trail of its own.​ ​ For this unique bottling we hand-selected a blend of single malts from ex-Bourbon barrels, 19th Century-style quarter casks and European oak hogsheads for a velvety texture. With the rare addition of whisky aged in virgin American oak – layering sweet aromas of vanilla to our renowned flavours of medicinal peat smoke and seaweed. ​ ​ Pour neat, over ice or with a dash of chilled water – and raise a glass to celebrate fresh ideas of your own.
