LAPHROAIG 15 YEAR OLD LIMITED EDITION ISLAY SINGLE MALT WHISKY 43% 700ML
Laphroaig 15 year old was first created 30 years ago. Barrels were individually selected for their particularly mellow rounded flavour, then batch bottled at the higher export strength of 43% ABV. The resulting flavour soon became a firm favourite winning many awards. Its highlight was being chosen for the famous ‘Erskine Charity Bottling’ in 2000 when 270 bottles were drawn from a single 15 year old cask signed by HRH The Prince of Wales for this charity of which he is a patron.
Our 200th Anniversary edition has been created in exactly the same way as the original. We very much hope it will be a delight both to those who have enjoyed it in the past and for many of you for whom it will be the first opportunity.
COLOUR: Sparkling gold
NOSE: Initial scents of grapefruit and fresh mint. A touch of water releases salted caramel, with signature Islay peat smoke underlying sweet orchard fruit aromas.
