A rich and smoky 10-year-old single malt from Laphroaig that has been finished in oloroso sherry casks, creating a rich, full-bodied character. Aromas of TCP, Manuka honey, clove, smoked bacon, leather and pine tar fill the nose, complemented by notes of treacle, wax, toffee, maple syrup, dark chocolate, pine needles, chestnut honey and rich peat smoke throughout the palate.Tasting Notes (2)
Laphroaig is known for its distinctively smoky Islay single malt, and this new release combines that world-renowned character with richly flavoured oloroso casks to create the perfect marriage of sherry and smoke.
Maturatation in ex-bourbon casks allows the whisky to develop its classic medicinal character, before it is filled into carefully selected oloroso sherry casks to further amplify the distillery’s powerfully seaweed-laden smoky style with layers of dark fruit, manuka honey, maple syrup and well-cured bacon.
For more than 200 years, Laphroaig has sat on the south coast of Islay producing some of the world’s most sought after peated whisky. One of the handful of Scottish distilleries which malts some of its own barley, it uses peat from its own peat bogs when drying the grain, giving its whisky the distinctively medicinal and smoky character that it has become known for over the centuries.

Oloroso Sherry Finish
Billy Abbott, The Whisky Exchange
Rich and sweet peat smoke with a thick layer of raisin jam, pine needles, earth and cinnamon-and-brown-sugar-dusted baked apples. Tar and leather develops, joined by liquorice, menthol and blackcurrants.
Dark and ashy to start, with bitter char and liquorice pastilles balanced by bittersweet dark chocolate, mint fondant and singed fruit cake. More fruit develops, wrapped in layers of ashy peat smoke.
Dark chocolate and tar fade to reveal fruit cake and a hint of lingering mint.
Sweet and peaty with medicinal notes, Manuka honey, with strong clove aroma but also grilled smoky bacon, a distinctive character of sweet leather, iodine and pine tar.
Sweet and aromatic, with rich wax and furniture polish notes followed by treacle toffee, maple syrup, bitter dark chocolate combined with oak shavings, pine needle and cedar scented wood.
The finish is long sweet and spicy with chestnut honey and antiseptic aroma lingering.

Complex and layered without losing the Laphroaig DNA. Amazing.
This whisky has the perfect smokiness with a sweet finish. My favorite!
Love the balance between peat and cherry cask finish - wonderful Dram
It’s just too damn peaty. The sherry finish is so understated, especially for a sherry like Pedro Ximenez.
Truly excellent.If glenfarclas distilled on Islay instead of the mainland it would taste like this!
