The most peated Laphroaig. But not in a "prove a point" kind of way.

Laphroaig distillery was founded in 1815 by Donald and Alexander Johnston and is located in Port Ellen on Islay. For a long while there’s been frenzy for Laphroaig’s Scotch. Rumor has it that Prince Charles of Wales himself is a big fan of the brand. But no matter what, Laphroaig is the Islay Single Malt by which all others are judged. They are the standard-bearers for the hearty, smoky style that Islay is famous for. Their core line up has no fewer than a dozen Single Malt drams plus a host of special releases and travel retail specialty editions.

The folks at Laphroaig call Lore “The Richest of the Rich.” And it's easy to see why. This is a classic Islay-styled Single Malt Whisky to be sure, but they go a little beyond the normal. The name Lore comes from the very old-school production methods.

The peat is hand cut. The malt is hand turned and cold-smoked. All if this harkens back to how they did it decades ago. The results are impressive. If you like your Whisky smoky, you will find Laphroaig Lore to be their most heavily peated dram

Very very smokey. If that's your taste, don't miss this bottle. Keep it in your mouth for a while to feel the extra smoke - if you drink it too fast tastes just like a regular Laphroaig. A must have for peated whisky lovers.
