Laphroaig Select Single Malt Scotch Whisky.
Laphroaig Select is made up from carefully select casks of each of Laphroaigs key styles.
With one especially relevant addition.
The heart of the spirit is drawn from a rather unusual final maturation in new American Oak casks. New casks are very rarely used for to mature Scotch Whisky.
Six months of this maturation takes place in the highest, warmest reaches of Laphroaigs warehouses during the Scottish summer.
Laphroaigs master distiller selects from Quater Cask, PX Cask and Triple Wood. These European oak casks also represent a subtle blending of peat, oak and sweetness.
Laphroaig Select Single Malt Whisky Tasting Notes;
Appearance: A Fully Natural colour with no caramel added, it is sparkling gold with layers of colour – arising from different maturations and oils mixing together.
On The Nose: Peat first, then ripe red fruits from the PX and Oloroso 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.
