This Laphroaig SELECT release celebrates the 200 Years Anniversary of the Laphroaig Distillery.
Laphroaig Select is aged in a combination of First Fill Ex-Bourbon Quarter Casks, Pedro Ximenez Sherry Hogsheads and Triple Wood (European Oak Casks) with the heart of the spirit being drawn from Whisky which has undergone a final maturation of about 6 months in New American Oak (Virgin) Casks placed in the highest parts of the warehouse to maximise the impact of the Scottish summer. In general it is quite unusual for Scotch Whisky maturation in New Oak Casks.
Awarded Gold Medal in 2020 & 2022 San Francisco World Spirits Competition.
