Laphroaig Select Single Malt Scotch Whisky
A Fully Natural color with no caramel added, it is sparkling gold with layers of color – arising from different maturations and oils mixing together. Peat first, then ripe red fruits from the PX and Oloroso casks. A hint of dryness next from the American oak with a long lingering floral finish - Marzipan and even limes at the end. This full bodied whisky is initially sweet up front- matching the nose, then the classic dry, peaty, ashy flavors come bounding in followed by a lovely rich finish arising from the rich fruits of the European casks.
Laphroaig Select takes its name from the special selection of American and European casks, chosen for their unique character that they give during maturation. Our Inspiration for our new Global expression has been take from history – 70-80 years ago, the time of the last family member owner of the distillery, Ian Hunter. Ian was one of the biggest influences in the history of Laphroaig indeed he was one of the first distillers to travel to bourbon county in the USA to identify new sources of casks that would give him greater consistency as well as new flavors. He later married this ‘new’ style of Laphroaig with his traditionally matured (European cask) Laphroaig.
