Laphroaig 10 Year Old Sherry Oak Finish Single Malt Whisky

A fine and full-bodied single malt. Finished in sherry oak casks to layer aromatic honey onto our famous peat smoke. Slàinte.​

Unforgettable flavours from our classic 10 Year Old whisky find harmony with the sweetness and complexity of Oloroso sherry to create Laphroaig® 10 Sherry Oak. Finished in European sherry oak casks for a particularly memorable single malt.​ ​ This unique expression begins with the same time-honoured process that goes into our regular 10 Year Old Laphroaig®. After drawing rich character from ex-Bourbon barrels, the spirit then rests in casks previously filled with sweet Oloroso sherry. Each barrel is hand selected to add extra complexity to our quintessential single malt. It’s what layers notes of Manuka honey and grilled bacon onto our renowned flavours of peat smoke and seaweed.

Colour:

Tawny and Auburn Colours

Nose:

Medicinal notes of peat smoke and Manuka Honey with strong cloves, leather, iodine and smoky bacon.

Palate:

Sweet and aromatic with rich waxy notes. Followed by toffee, maple syrup, dark chocolate, pine needle and cedar.

Finish:

Lingering Sweetness and smouldering peat smoke with nuttiness and hint of brine.

Maturation:

Aged in Ex-bourbon and finished in European Oloroso sherry oak casks.

Whisky Resource Note:

While at 48% chill filtration is not expected, there is no information on the packaging or website to confirm this.
Likewise there appears to be no colour statement, as such, the value score has been calculated with chill filtration and colour added in mind.
