Aged for ten years and finished in sherry casks, this unique Laphroaig expression combines the unforgettable flavor of our classic 10 year old whisky with the sweetness and complexity of Oloroso. Notes of Manuka honey, grilled bacon and maple syrup meet the classic peat smoke and seaweed that Laphroaig is famous for.
The whisky is crafted in the same time-honored way as our regular 10 year old single malt before resting in carefully selected sherry casks. Each one is carefully chosen to complement and lend complexity to our quintessential single malt. The barrels are crafted from European oak, and previously filled with sweet Oloroso sherry to bring a rich, full-bodied flavor profile to this single malt Scotch.
- Nose: Sweet and peaty with medicinal notes of Manuka honey, hospital bandages, antiseptic lotion, Germolene, strong cloves aroma but also grilled smoky bacon, a distinctive character of sweet leather, iodine and pine tar.
- Body: Long sweet and spicy with chestnut honey and antiseptic aroma lingering.
- Palate: Sweet and aromatic, with rich wax and furniture polish notes followed by treacle toffee, maple syrup, bitter dark chocolate combined with pencil shavings, pine needle and cedar scented wood.
- Finish: Finished in European oak Oloroso sherry barrels.

"Rich manuka honey, wood spice, cocoa dusted deliciously and sweetened by the dried stone fruit. Peat aromas meet a parched sherry palate rich with furniture polish and beeswax. Green, smoky and sweet."

"The nose is earthy and spicy with mature oak, aged peat, melted caramel, potpourri, sherry, candle wax, musty old library, and wool-filled closet. On the palate it’s rich and concentrated, creamy and thick, with chocolate cake and warm chocolate syrup, burnt coffee beans, cooked dark fruits, and medicinal notes, with a great touch of peated sweetness at the end. The peat and sherry oak create a remarkably subtle, yet delightfully complex effect."
