Rated 4.67 out of 5 based on 6 customer ratings
(6 customer reviews)

For the Laphroaig Select Single Malt Scotch Whisky, Islay distillery has taken whisky from a number of different types of cask, including Oloroso Sherry butts, white American oak, Pedro Ximenez seasoned hoggies, Quarter casks and first fill bourbon casks. Quite a “selection”, wouldn’t you say? A laid-back addition to the Laphroaig core range of single malts.

Description

Laphroaig Select Single Malt Scotch Whisky, Islay takes its name from the special selection of American and European casks, chosen for their unique character that they give during maturation. Laphroaig 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.

TASTING NOTES:

COLOUR: A Fully Natural colour with no caramel added, it is sparkling gold with layers of colour – arising from different maturations and oils mixing together.
NOSE: Peat first, then ripe red fruits from the PX and Oloroso casks. A hint of dryness next from the American oak with a long lingering floral finish – Marzipan and even limes at the end.
PALATE: This full bodied whisky is initially sweet up front- matching the nose, then the classic dry, peaty, ashy flavours come bounding in followed by a lovely rich finish arising from the rich fruits of the European casks.

    I thought the select is a very nice addition to the 10, I don’t like to judge a whiskey by the number on the bottle, rather my taste and if it has a complete profile of all the good characters I like. The “select” is my kind of Islay, as simple as that!

    I wanted a good intro to peat without being immediately turned off by the difference from my “normal” choices. I was pleasantly surprised, I think this has me hooked on peat I will try the normal 10yr.

    Whilst I’ve had my fair share of Islays, the Lagavulin 16 being a favourite; I’ve never been a big Laphroaig fan; it being the polar opposite of my gravitation to sherried Speysides. So when I was bought this as a gift, I was simultaneously pleased and disappointed. How wrong I was! I can get why staunch Laphroaigans(?) could have reason to bemoan it’s Lite approach, but I think it’s a wonderful expression of the Laphroaig character and I’m grateful for this doorway back.

    Well balanced, sweet, hints of smoke..not your classic Laphroaig, but a well balanced expression! Great value for the $$

    I was expecting to be disappointed given the reviews but this is an impressive Laphroaig, more polished than usual but still plenty of smoke and tarry rope. Excellent.

    I think some people (Mikko) are a bit confused here. The bottling and Laphroaig website clearly state that this is ”no caramel” natural colour. I found it much lighter than a 10 but non the worse for it, the very clean smokey nose was also welcome. perhaps a bit thinner and more spirity than the standard 10 but nice. Like the 10 takes a little water very well, seems to open out the palate and lengthen the finish
