The Oddbins Take

They Say

Laphroaig Select is a special, full bodied whisky that owes its natural colouring and flavours to a selection of American and European casks; namely Oloroso Sherry Butts, Straight American White Oak (non-bourbon filled), PX Seasoned Hogsheads, Quarter Casks and, finally, first fill Bourbon Casks. This varied maturation process gives the whisky an initial sweetness, promptly followed by classic dry, peaty and ashy flavours with a delightfully rich finish, owing to the rich fruits of the European casks.

We Say

A more discreetly peated member of the line up, this surprisingly light whisky is a great introduction to Laphroaig’s stronger, more typical smoky flavours…Alter Ego: James May; Boasts its own, albeit more gentle, personality than its companions whilst remaining a formidable part of the group. Definitely should not be underestimated! Being well-travelled (across the range of casks) makes this individual far from boring.

The history of Laphroaig remains ambiguous as, unfortunately, much of its story has been lost over time. Nevertheless, the Islay distillery remains true to the origins that it knows and, with a determined group of people, they have been making superb whiskies since roughly 1815.
