Laphroaig adds to portfolio

Laphroaig Select

Laphroaig have launched Laphroaig Select, the latest addition to the Islay distillers’ portfolio. The whisky is a blending of Laphroaig Quarter Cask, PX Cask, Triple Wood and the signature 10yr expression, which is then matured in new American oak casks, rarely used for Scotch whisky. Fans of the whisky’s famously intense tones of peat and iodine won’t be disappointed, as Master Distiller John Campbell has promised Laphroaig Select offers Laphroaig’s trademark ‘peat reek’, with hints of oak and sweetness.
John said, “Select is an exciting and unique expression that brings together the best of Laphroaig’s flavour profile. The inspiration for Laphroaig Select comes from perhaps our greatest family owner, Ian Hunter, one of the first distillers to experiment with both ‘new’ American and ‘traditional’ European oak maturation. As the world’s No.1 Islay malt whisky, we continue to stay true to our long and illustrious heritage, and this expression sits perfectly amongst our award-winning portfolio.”
