Description

Described as “the richest of the rich”, Laphroaig Lore combines a number of casks including first-fill Bourbon barrels, quarter casks and Oloroso Sherry hogsheads.

Laphroaig’s history began in around 1800 – 15 years before the distillery opened – when brothers Alexander and Donald Johnston invented the whisky’s recipe which was further developed in the 1920s by former distillery manager, Ian Hunter, who is said to have pioneered the use of ex-Bourbon casks.

Laphroaig distillery manager, John Campbell, said: “Over the generations, distillery managers like me have made their own contributions to the quality and character of Laphroaig."

“From the founding of Laphroaig, these custodians have each made their own mark, whether it was drying the malting barley at lower temperatures than most, using two sizes of spirit still, pioneering the use of ex-Bourbon barrels, or reintroducing the quarter cask to Scotch whisky-making.

Laphroaig Lore is the story of Laphroaig itself. A massive whisky, as bold as it is deep and one which undoubtedly will do justice to the many generations of Laphroaig distillery manager.

Tasting Notes

Nose: Rich and smokey with seaside minerals and a hint of ash and bitter chocolate drops. This is then followed by vanilla with unroasted chestnuts and a hint of fudge with a malty sweetness to it.
Palate Richly peaty with a warming chilli bite.
Finish: The warming chilli bite offers a short, dry finish and a long sweet aftertaste.
