For two centuries, (1815 refers to the founding of the distillery) Laphroaig master craftsmen have worked to shape the most richly flavoured of all Scotch whiskies.
The 1815 edition was created by current Laphroaig Distillery Manager, John Campbell, to honour those who have gone before him.
Left to rest in first-fill, over-charred ex-bourbon barrels before further maturing in large, new European oak hogsheads maturation occurs slowly, resulting in a whisky of great depth.
“Laphroaig describe The 1815 as deep sunset orange in colour, with aromas of burnt apricot and raisin, they say it combines the signature peat smoke of Laphroaig with soft oak and notes of rich caramelised dark fruit and a dried fruit, nut, peat and oiled-wood finish”
