Laphroaig - Select - Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Laphroaig Select takes its name from the special selection of American and European casks, chosen for their unique character that they give during maturation. The inspiration for this expression comes from Ian Hunter, the last family member owner of the distillery, and one of the first distillers to travel to bourbon county in the USA to identify new sources of casks that would give him greater consistency as well as new flavors.
We have used Oloroso sherry butts, straight American white oak (non-filled with bourbon), PX seasoned hogsheads, Quarter Casks and finally of course first fill Bourbon Casks.
The winning flavor and name chosen by our Friends – LAPHROAIG SELECT.
