Hitting the sweet notes
Laphroaig debuts a new sweet take on its 10-year old
Laphroaig 10-Year-Old Sherry Oak Finish is a new take on the flagship expression from Islay, combining the distillery’s iconic 10-year-old whisky with the sweet, aromatic flavour from Oloroso sherry casks. The result is a rich, full-bodied flavour with notes of Manuka honey, bacon and maple syrup alongside the classic smoke, seaweed and hint of salt that Laphroaig is renowned for.
“Sherry Oak is an exquisite addition, taking our iconic Laphroaig 10-Year-Old and finishing it in Oloroso sherry casks to lend depth and sweetness,” says Laphroaig distillery manager John Campbell. “This is a perfect accompaniment to any whisky collection and a celebrated expansion of the Laphroaig range. Laphroaig drinkers are the most passionate Scotch drinkers in the world and with this new offering, we’re delighted to give them another Scotch option that embraces our commitments to craftsmanship and innovation.”
The Scotch is aged for 12-18 months in Oloroso sherry casks for complexity and balance. Limited to 4,450 cases globally, it looks set to be sought after by whisky enthusiasts all over the world. laphroaig.com
