This special Laphroaig is created from carefully selected casks of each of our key styles, stretching back in time - with one notable addition. The heart of the spirit is drawn from a final maturation in new American Oak casks, rarely used for Scotch Whisky maturation. Six months of this maturation takes place in the highest, warmest reaches of our warehouses during the Scottish summer.
With spirit selected by Laphroaig’s master distiller from Quarter Cask, PX Cask and Triple Wood (European Oak casks), it represents a subtle blending of peat, oak and sweetness.
Nose: Peat first, then ripe red fruits with a hint of dryness.
Palate: Sweet up front then classic dry, peaty, ashy flavours followed by a rich finish.
Finish: Long lingering and florally with marzipan and limes at the end.
