An Cuan MorPlease wait Please wait
An Cuan Mor is a travel-retail-exclusive bottling, focused on Laphroaig's traditional maritime character. Maturation in first-fill ex-bourbon casks and finishing in European oak give the whisky a balance of fresh fruit, dried fruit and classic iodine-laced Laphroaig character.
ALLERGEN INFORMATIONThis product may contain the following:
From the producer
- Nose: Starting with rich sweetness of figs, moving into a floral flavour of lavender and black pepper developing into sweet natural honey notes.
- Palate: An intense and profound depth.
- Finish: Very peppery and spicy, also liquorice root with a slight saltiness. Moving to gentle oak tannins, lovely orange peel and then a dry earthiness.
Producer of the most popular whisky on the island of Islay, Laphroaig has been making whisky for more than 200 years. The distillery is known for its strong and medicinal character, with its divisive nature earning it a reputation as the Marmite of whiskies.

I find this scotch very palatable- the slight salty tang makes it a winner and unique. The aromas are incredibly pungent - and my wife always knows when i have opened the bottle for a dram. I'm pretty pleased with this purchase - I will definitely try more from this distillery.
A very unique whiskey with an amazing complexity of smoke, citrus and slightly toasted bacon taste.
The best whisky I've tasted. Worth of every €.
Worthy of a 5 star review... Everything that people are saying... But in addition to that this dram is salty and exceptionally so... very enjoyable.
the best, complex sweet, smokey and round. worth the money, every penny
this is high quality stuff. a travel retail exclusive that absolutely hits all the right notes. Bravo. Better than well done, superb actually.
It''s worth its price tag - a smooth & richly flavoured malt with an undertone of smoke
Incredibly smooth and gentle whisky, considering it''s a Laphroaig. Bursting full of flavor with only a hint of smoke. A mellowness you normally only see in rare and expensive ( ?300) Laphroaig whiskies. I love it!
A great whisky
Lovely whisky , helped by the first fill bourbon casks
