Laphroaig 28 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky Limited Edition
LAPHROAIG CASK STRENGTH IS AN ISLAY SCOTCH, BOTTLED AT NATURAL DISTILLERY STRENGTH AND NON-CHILL FILTERED. It has all the genuine depth, taste and texture associated with sampling whisky at source. Laphroaig whisky is matured in seasoned oak barrels, which are charred before filling to impart a slight sweet vanilla nuttiness. Laphroaig 10 year Cask Strength is barrier-filtered, only just, to remove the small char particles. This means you can enjoy exactly as we made it, with very little intervention.
The 2018 entry in Laphroaig's yearly limited edition series is one of the distillery's oldest releases yet – a 28-year-old whisky. It's a carefully selected mixture of casks, bringing together quarter casks, ex-bourbon barrels and oloroso sherry butts. It's picked up a reputation as being the best yet in the series, combining the distillery's medicinal smoke character with the fruitiness that many of its older bottles show.
