700ML / 40.0% ABV.
Laphroaig Select takes its name from the special selection of American and European casks, chosen for the unique character that they give during maturation. The cask types include: Oloroso sherry butts, straight American white oak, PX seasoned hogsheads, Quarter Casks and first fill Bourbon Casks.
Nose: Peat first, then ripe red fruits from the PX and Oloroso casks. A hint of dryness next from the American oak with a long lingering florally finish - Marzipan and even limes at the end.
Palate: This full bodied whisky is initially sweet up front- matching the nose, then the classic dry, peaty, ashy flavours come bounding in followed by a lovely rich finish arising from the rich fruits of the European casks.
