Just a fantastic drink that I heard about from a PKD novel
Laphroaig Select Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Scotch Whisky /40% ABV / Scotland
- 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. Our Inspiration for our new Global expression has been take from history – 70-80 years ago, the time of the last family member owner of the distillery, Ian Hunter. Ian was one of the biggest influences in the history of Laphroaig indeed he was 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 flavours. He later married this ‘new’ style of Laphroaig with his traditionally matured (European cask) Laphroaig. Inspired by his early work , 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. This varied cask maturation technique enabled us to create 6 new flavour combinations that were then tested with our FOL’s to choose their favourite style and indeed name. The winning flavour and name chosen by you is LAPHROAIG SELECT.View all products by LaphroaigCalifornia Residents: Click here for Proposition 65 WARNING

1. Scotch is whisky..........Bourbon is whiskey. 2. I haven't received shipment yet but I can tell you that it will be wonderful because I know the brand really well. I also favor Bunnahabhain and will look forward to receiving same from your store in the future. Thanks Glenn

A tasty dram, however lacking the complexity of the 10 year. Still worth a sip.
