Distilled on the island of Islay off the west coast of Scotland, the flavour of Laphroaig is as untamed as the ocean itself. Our single malt Scotch whisky has always kept itself a bit remote, like the islanders of Islay themselves. But if you make the effort and broach acquaintance you’ll have a warm and genuine friend for life.
In celebration of the 200th anniversary, Laphroaig has created this limited edition 15 year old expression. It is truly something to savour – with good friends if you are feeling generous. Scents of grapefruit and fresh min greet you when you first open the bottle. A touch of water releases salted caramel, with signature Islay peat smoke underlying sweet orchard fruit aromas.
The first taste is of pink peppercorns with light peat smoke and a soft dryness that resolves to the flavour of tobacco. Just a faint hint of the sea follows, testimony to 15 years of maturation next to the Atlantic Ocean. The prolonged mellow finish, with a smoky aftertaste, will ensure your experience its fulfilling and unforgettable.
