- Laphroaig Select
Laphroaig Select Islay single malt Scotch whiskey. Matured in Olorosso sherry butts, straight American white oak (non-filled with bourbon), PX seasoned hogsheads, Quarter Casks and finally of course First Filled Bourbon Casks.
NOSE: Peat first, then ripe red fruits from the PX and Olorosso 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 whiskey 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.
