All about making whisky
For its 200th anniversary, Laphroaig returns to one of its historic bottlings, the Laphroaig 15 year old, which hasn’t been released since 2009. This is a more discreet, less medicinal 15 year old with subtler notes of peat, where the Laphroaig characteristic fruitiness (red and exotic fruit) nonetheless filters through. Released by the new owners of this legendary distillery, Jim Beam-Suntory.
Profile: Peat and citrus fruit (lemon) open, before white fruit (ripe pear) and spices (pepper and cumin) follow.
Due to its phenolic character, Laphroaig is well-known among amateurs. It’s no surprise then that the distillery owns its own peat bog, capable of guaranteeing the supply of peat for the next 4,000 years. Laphroaig will never lose its character nor, consequently, its fans and its critics – since such a peaty malt cannot be loved unanimously – even its water, drawn from the Loch Kilbride spring, is filtered through peat!
