Laphroaig 15 YO re-released for anniversary

Scotch whisky distillery Laphroaig is to re-release its 15 Year Old Single Malt variant for a limited time in honour of the brand’s bicentenary.

Laphroaig 15 Year Old will be re-released for a limited time only

The limited edition bottling was first created 30 years ago, aged in barrels which were individually selected for their “particularly mellow rounded flavour”.

The expression was then batch bottled at the higher export strength of 43% abv.
Now, it will return to the market in a limited bottling from late June onwards in select markets across the world at an RRP of US$79.99 for a 750ml bottle.
The Scotch is described as having a “milder smokiness” than its 10 Year Old predecessor, with a “soft dryness” and “faint hint of the sea”.
Adding a drop of water “releases salted caramel, with signature Islay peat smoke underlying sweet orchard fruit aromas”.
Laphroaig has been performing its traditional distilling process for the past 200 years, and is still one of just a few distilleries to use malting floors, drying and and infusing its malt with smoke from peat-fired kilns.

Earlier this year, to mark the 200-year milestone, the brand approached  discerning Australian whisky drinkers for their honest opinions as part of its campaign “200 Opinions Wanted”.
