Part of the triumvirate of heavily-peated southern Islay malts, alongside LVMH's Ardbeg and Diageo's Lagavulin, Laphroaig was founded in 1810 by brothers Alexander and Donald Johnston (although the official year of start-up is given as 1815 on the company's labels and literature). The histories of Lagavulin and Laphroaig have been closely tied ... Read More »
Laphroaig 10yo is a full-bodied, smoky gem, with a residual sweetness and a hint of salt amidst the seaweedy, peaty characters before a long warming finish. A classic dram. IWSC 2012 - Gold Medal - Whisky - Scotch
A vibrant young Laphroaig whose maturation has been speeded up by ageing in Quarter Casks. This shows soft sweetness and a velvety feel when first tasted, then the intense peatiness so unique to Laphroaig comes bursting through. A really terrific whisky and great value.
Formerly a travel retail exclusive, the popularity of the Triple Wood has led to it being launched into the general market. The whisky starts off maturing in regular bourbon casks, before being moved to Laphroaig's bespoke quarter casks for a time. The whisky is then finished in Oloroso sherry casks to gently sand off any remaining sharp edges. IWSC 2012 - Gold Medal - Whisky - Scotch
A smart collection of three 33cl bottles of the Laphroaig range, featuring the 10 year-old, Quarter-Cask, and the soon-to-be-replaced 10 yo Cask-Strength. Please note that the bottles in this pack are 33cl
The 3rd batch of Laphroaig's riotously popular small batch editions of their famed 10yo cask strength Islay single malt. No doubt this will be as big a hit as the previous editions - this is an expression that never disappoints.
A 1996 vintage Caol Ila from independent bottlers Hunter Laing as part of their Old Malt Casks series. Aged for 17 years before bottling, this is a classically sweet and peaty example of the distillery's style.
A 1990 vintage Laphroaig bottled by indie bottler Montgomerie's in July 2009 at 18 years of age. This was distilled in the early days of legendary former manager Iain Henderson's reign at the distillery.
A giant whack of peat, tempered by some toffee-like notes. This is a powerful, uncompromising whisky, and all the better for it. 'A fine robust dram with lots happening. Laphroaig at its best. 8.75/10' Gavin Smith, Whisky Magazine May 2004
A single cask bottling of 1998 vintage Laphroaig, one of a small range of excellent casks chosen by TWE and bottled by Signatory. This whisky is a fantastic slap in the face, with huge sherry notes combined with big Laphroaig peat and intense flavour thanks to its high natural strength. A must for sherry heads.
A 1997 vintage Laphroaig released by independent bottlers Douglas Laing as part of their Directors' Cut series. This was distilled just a few years after the distillery became the first (and as of 2013, the only) one to carry the Royal Warrant for the Prince of Wales.
Zesty oak and warm peat smoke top notes, with sweet undertones, reminiscent of fresh nutmeg and toasted almonds. Faintly salty. Laphroaig 15yo is a smoother and more elegant elder sibling to the robust 10 year-old.
Please note that this is restricted to 2 bottles per customer
A 10 year old bottling of 'Leapfrog' from independent bottlers Murray McDavid. From a distillery on the south coast of Islay which claims to be "the world's most richly flavoured Scotch Whisky". This was distilled in 1988 and aged in an ex-bourbon cask.
