Laphroaig Select Single Malt Whisky

Our most approachable whisky. A blend of single malts hand-selected from five different casks, creating a mellow Scotch with balanced and complex flavour. ​

It’s only fitting that the perfect introduction to peated whisky draws from a broad range of casks in our storehouse. Sweet and smooth, Laphroaig® Select tells our two hundred year history of passionate distilling in every dram. ​ ​ To create the Laphroaig® Select blend, our Master Distiller hand-selected whiskies aged in Oloroso sherry butts, first-fill ex-Bourbon quarter casks and Pedro Ximenez sherry hogsheads at different levels of maturation. Finished in virgin American oak barrels – a rare wood source for Scotch whisky. ​ ​ Our most laid-back expression lets our signature flavours of medicinal peat smoke and seaweed shine, leaving plenty of room for notes of red fruit, lime and a floral finish. ​

Colour:

Sparking Gold

Nose:

Forward peat smoke followed by Ripe Red Fruit

Palate:

Sweet at first, followed by peat smoke and dashes of Ash and Seaweed

Finish:

Long finish with lingering floral notes. Touches of Marzipan and Lime.

Maturation:

Blend of whiskies aged in Oloroso Sherry Butts, Pedro Ximenez Hogsheads and Ex-Bourbon casks, finished in new American Oak barrel.
