Laphroaig 10yr Sherry Oak Finish Single Malt Scotch
Laphroaig Sherry Oak Finish marries the distinctive taste of Laphroaig's 10 year old single malt with the sweetness of European oak Oloroso barrels. Alongside the unforgettable flavors of Laphroaig — medicinal and smoky with a hint of seaweed — this single malt Scotch has notes of Manuka honey and maple syrup sweetness. This is anchored by savory notes of leather and bacon, making this a truly complex and full-bodied dram.
This whisky is the perfect choice for those who have tried and loved Laphroaig 10, and now want to expand their horizons. It's best served neat: simply add a splash of fresh water or a cube of ice, if you prefer.
Made in a time-honored way laid down by two centuries of master distillers, Laphroaig Sherry Oak Finish starts the same way as the company's other single malt scotch whiskies. The malted barley is cold-smoked and dried over a peat fire, where it picks up the distinctive smoky flavor which makes Laphroaig's peated whisky so beloved.
After distillation, the spirit matures for ten years in a combination of refill Oloroso sherry barrels and American oak ex-bourbon barrels. For its final transformation, it's moved into European Oak Oloroso sherry barrels where it takes on and develops sweet and spicy aromas — along with a deep amber color like liquid gold.
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.
