Laphroaig Select is aged in a combination of Oloroso sherry butts, American white oak (we suspect some of this is virgin oak), hogsheads seasoned with Pedro Ximenez, quarter casks and first fill bourbon casks. This results in a restrained and toned down version of this Islay classic.

Tasting Notes

Tasting Notes

  • Tasting Notes by Billy A

    • Nose

      Punchy medicinal and mineral notes on the nose - muddy peat, rockpools and sea spray. Behind that there is sweetness, with chocolate milk and cornflake touches, as well as sherbert lemons and a gentle touch of wood smoke.

    • Palate

      Soft and surprisingly light on the palate, with gingery spice, vanilla, sour apple and char backed up by nutmeg, cinnamon and a little dried fruit. The peat from the nose is subdued, with a soft and syrupy pine note coming through.

    • Finish

      Spicy new oak, sour apple and a touch of damp wood. As that fades the traditional medicinal notes appear and linger for a short while.

    • Comment

      An introductory Laphroaig, offering a big hit on the nose and a softer palate to lure in the unsuspecting.

  • Producer's Notes

    • Colour

      A Fully Natural colour with no caramel added, it is sparkling gold with layers of colour – arising from different maturations and oils mixing together.

    • Nose

      Peat first, then ripe red fruits from the PX and Olorosso casks. A hint of dryness next from the American oak with a long lingering florally finish - Marzipan and even limes at the end.

    • Palate

      This full bodied whisky is initially sweet up front- matching the nose, then the classic dry, peaty, ashy flavours come bounding in followed by a lovely rich finish arising from the rich fruits of the European casks.

    Roger Birchall,

    I’m always suspicious when the age is not given, I think it may be a ruse to unload some cheaper, unaged product. It’s drinkable, but not to be bought again; 10 yr is better.
