A terrific introduction to a superbly peated range. 


The Laphroaig distillery was founded in 1815 by Donald and Alexander Johnston and is located in Port Ellen, Isle of Islay. Although Laphroaig isn't allowed to put the prefix ‘Royal’ in its name (yet!), rumour has it his royal princeness Charles of Wales is a fan of the ‘L’ Whisky. The 15-year-old is reportedly the prince's favourite Scotch. For a long while there’s been frenzy for Laphroaig’s Scotch, especially for the less available expressions.


Laphroaig Select is the latest permanent addition to the Laphroaig range. Select is aged in a combination of American white oak, Oloroso Sherry butts, hogsheads seasoned with Pedro Ximenez, quarter casks and first-fill Bourbon casks. Whoa, quite a lot going on!

It’s a little smoother than the Laphroaig 10 we are probably all used to and is a really interesting expression from one of the best distilleries in Scotland.
