A remarkably rich single malt whisky from one of Scotland’s most storied distilleries. Laphroaig make an instantly recognisable style of Islay malt whisky, which showcases the medicinal, maritime nature of the island’s peat. This Laphroaig has been matured in a selection of barrels including first fill Sherry and smaller quarter casks.
Laphroaig is infamous for being allowed to enter the US during Prohibition – such is its iodine rich style, American authorities believed the whisky to be medicinal (or so the story goes – we think there may well have been a Laphroaig fan in the US government!).
Certainly, it's true that more than any other, this is a distillery that polarises people – the Marmite of the whisky world. This is something Laphroaig themselves recognises and celebrates, with their famous advertising campaign, "Opinions Welcome".

Immediately, the Laphroaig character takes hold: with intense iodine, kelp, ashy peat and sea spray. With time, a deeper, sherried profile comes through, with smoked plums and cacao.
A peppery and rich body serves flavours faithful to the nose, with the same intensity of peat, roasted nuts and dark chocolate. A little sweet vanilla and dried fruit brings balance.
Drying and medium in length, with the seaside character subsiding to reveal the whisky’s hidden malty, fruity sweetness.
