Laphroaig is on the rugged island of Islay, where they produce distinctive smoky whiskies. The first maturation for the Triple Wood is in bourbon barrels; the second in small 19th-century-style quarter casks, and the final maturation in large oloroso sherry casks. Bold, smoked nuttiness and citrus are on the palate.
The most richly flavoured of all Scotch whiskies. Matured in ex-bourbon barrels and quarter casks, then finish in European oak. Distilled on the remote island of Islay off the west coast of Scotland. The No 1 Islay malt in the UK and globally - The only Islay malt you will need to stock. Unmistakable peat-smoke flavours - An unforgettable, challenging yet rewarding experience. A truly iconic brand - Instantly recognised around the world and with a global community of over 540,000 Friends of Laphroaig. The only single malt Scotch whisky to be awarded the Royal Warrant by HRH Prince of Wales - The Royal Crest on the distillery and on every bottle of Laphroaig is the ultimate seal of approval of the highest quality product. This expression of our famous whisky has enjoyed a triple maturation. First it is aged in ex-bourbon barrels, then in small 19th century style quarter casks. The final maturation is in large European oak casks, resulting in the perfect marriage of peat, oak and subtle sherry sweetness. This style of maturation brings together 3 different types of barrel and traditions: ex-bourbon, now used predominantly for Scotch whisky maturation, large European oak casks (known as 'Butts') and traditional quarter casks, which are themselves one-quarter the size of the European oak. The first maturation is in ex-bourbon barrels, we then transfer to quarter casks, which impart additional depth and fullness, whilst retaining our traditional peat smoke. The final maturation is in European oak butts. These large vessels, which used to contain oloroso sherry, have been specially selected to have a subtle influence. The combination of slow maturation due to their large size, the European oak wood and the very gentle sherry finishing, adds to the influence of the 2 other barrels to create a more complex, rounded flavour. The result is the perfect marriage of peat smoke, oak and subtle sweetness. What Makes Laphroaig Special? The definitive Islay single malt: Peaty, smoky, challenging, rewarding. One of the most richly peated whiskies (up to 50 ppm). The high level of peat gives it its characteristic taste. Only one of a few distilleries that still uses traditional malting floors. It dries the malted barley over a peat fire made from hand cut peat from its own peat beds in Islay. This adds to the distinctive, pungent, peaty, iodine aroma. Matured exclusively in first fill bourbon casks. Warehouse location close to the sea, imparts a slightly sea salty character. Appearance Bright gold. Nose Sweet raisins and creamy apricots give way to dry peat smoke. Palate Initial burst of peat is followed by creamier flavours of vanilla and fruit with a suggestion of sherry sweetness. Finish Mouth-filling and extremely long, but balanced by the sweet smooth caramel taste.
