The Laphroaig distillery was established in 1815 by Donald and Alexander Johnston, it is located in Port Charlotte, and is currently owned by Beam Inc. Since 1994 Laphroaig has been the only whisky to carry the Royal Warrant of HRH, Prince Charles of Wales. It is known for producing one of the most peated Islay single malt whiskys, among Lagavulin, Ardbeg, and Bruichladdich.
To make this exquisite Laphroaig 30 Year Single Malt Scotch Whisky, mature Laphroaig previously aged in refill hogsheads was transferred into first-fill ex-bourbon barrels and refill quarter casks. Patiently aged in Laphroaig’s famous Warehouse No. 1, these casks were then hand selected for a final maturation. This rare whisky features a touch of Laphroaig’s trademark peat smoke tempered by lime and sea salt. Each and every sip will be well worth the wait.
NOSE: Ripe tropical fruits, toasted macadamia nuts and more than a hint of vanilla cream.
PALATE: Smoke, tempered by lime and nectarine, giving way to sea salt and mild chilli.
FINISH: Antique leather and green tobacco leaf.
