All about making whisky
LAPHROAIG Pedro Ximenez 48%
Single Malt Whisky, Scotland / Islay, 1L, Ref: 19498
PX Cask is the first official bottling of Laphroaig to be aged in Pedro Ximenez sherry casks, often referred to by their initials “PX”. Pedro Ximenez sherry is known for being naturally sweet.
Three types of casks are used for its maturation: American oak, Quarter Cask and Pedro Ximenez sherry. The final maturation in ex-PX casks brings richness, sweetness and roundness that perfectly matches the smoky peat of Laphroaig.
- The brand
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!

Très bon mais un peu fruité pour nos goûts personnels.
