Laphroaig Select Islay Single Malt Whisky 700ml
Country: Scotch Whisky
Region: Islay Whisky
The Select is the latest addition to the famous Islay distillery of Laphroaig's core range. Laphroaig is well known for its very peaty and smoky style of single malts and the Select will sit alongside the classic 10 years old, Quarter Cask, Triple Wood and 18 years old expressions. The whiskies used to create the Select have been selected by Laphroaig's Master Distiller John Campbell and come from a number of different American and European oak cask types. However, the main difference in this release is the use of new American oak casks in the final maturation.
Nose: Classic, medicinal peat notes up front, supported by citrus-y, chocolate-y sweet notes and soft barley.
Palate: The peat is there, but it's taking it easy and letting the bright notes of lemon, green apples and mint stand out. Darker baking spice notes develop further on.
Finish: Medium length, peat remaining in sight until it's over.
Overall: It doesn't pack a huge punch of peat, which might be just the ticket for introducing someone to the wonders of Islay's smoky expressions.
