A terrific introduction to a superbly peated range. 


The Laphroaig distillery was founded in 1815 by Donald and Alexander Johnston and is located in Port Ellen, Isle of Islay. Although Laphroaig isn't allowed to put the prefix ‘Royal’ in its name (yet!), rumour has it his royal princeness Charles of Wales is a fan of the ‘L’ Whisky. The 15-year-old is reportedly the prince's favourite Scotch. For a long while there’s been frenzy for Laphroaig’s Scotch, especially for the less available expressions.


Laphroaig Select is the latest permanent addition to the Laphroaig range. Select is aged in a combination of American white oak, Oloroso Sherry butts, hogsheads seasoned with Pedro Ximenez, quarter casks and first-fill Bourbon casks. Whoa, quite a lot going on!

It’s a little smoother than the Laphroaig 10 we are probably all used to and is a really interesting expression from one of the best distilleries in Scotland.

What does Laphroaig Select taste like?

The Flavour Spiral™ shows the most common flavours that you'll taste in Laphroaig Select and gives you a chance to have a taste of it before actually tasting it.

We invented Flavour Spiral™ here at Flaviar to get all your senses involved in tasting drinks and, frankly, because we think that classic tasting notes are boring.

Bill,
Have ordered a couple of sample packs, and considering ordering "The Exceptional" Collection.. Love what I've had, it has expanded my whiskey experience and helped me get employed in the wine and spirits industry here in WA state!! Thank you!
Maxwell
Maxwell,
A good whisky, not as peaty as other Laphroaig expressions, well balanced and a good whisky to introduce someone to peat
Ty
Ty,
I love heavily peated scotch, but something is wrong with this expression. I think the new oak cask finish ruins this dram. I worked my way through an entire bottle trying to like it, but Select is just not enjoyable. Not balanced, some off-putting flavors, and even the signature Laphroaig peatiness is off. Sorry, just buy the 10 instead. Better yet, if you're looking for nuanced heavy peat at this price point, get some Ardbeg 10.
Robert
Robert,
Sorry. Way to much peat and smoke for me. I know it is the favorite for some and for them I highly recommend it. If you want a smother scotch I would say look to another.
