Laphroaig Select Islay Single Malt Scotch is matured in five different types of casks: Oloroso sherry, white American oak, Pedro Ximenez, quarter-sized and first-fill bourbon.
After the whisky has been matured, it is finished in virgin American oak casks, a type of wood rarely used in the Scotch whisky industry. During its time in virgin American oak, the whisky is rested in the highest, warmest reaches of Laphroaig's warehouse, which increases the exposure of the whisky to the wood.
Nose: Aroma of peat, lemon, herbs, green apples, and mint.
Palate: Notes of baking spices, citrus, honey, oak, and caramel are complemented by bold notes of smoke on the palate.
Finish: Finish accented by touches of salty brine and rich fruits.
Cheers, and enjoy this whiskey!
