Laphroaig Select 40%, OB 

Laphroaig Select takes its name from the special selection of American and European casks, chosen for their unique character that they give during maturation. Our Inspiration for our new Global expression has been take from history – 70-80 years ago, the time of the last family member owner of the distillery, Ian Hunter. Ian was one of the biggest influences in the history of Laphroaig indeed he was one of the first distillers to travel to bourbon county in the USA to identify new sources of casks that would give him greater consistency as well as new flavours. He later married this ‘new’ style of Laphroaig with his traditionally matured (European cask) Laphroaig. 

Inspired by his early work , we have 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. This varied cask maturation technique enabled us to create 6 new flavour combinations that were then tested with our FOL’s to choose their favourite style and indeed name. The winning flavour and name chosen by you is Laphroaig Select.

Tasting Note :
LaphroaigSelec (40%, OB, circa 2014)

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 florally 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. 


關於Laphroaig:

非主流威士忌極品

位處蘇格蘭西南的ISLAY艾雷島,其地理特色便是沿岸佈有超高密度之海草,且有終年不斷的冷烈海風。艾雷島便是在此獨特地理條 件下,孕育出全世界最具個性與特色的單一純麥威士忌。就在大部份威士忌愛好者將蘇格蘭高地Spey Side視為是威士忌聖地的同時,另有一群品味不凡的威士忌鑑賞家卻將艾雷島單一純麥威士忌推舉為是威士忌中的非主流極品。

最具代表性的艾雷島威士忌
位於艾雷島北海岸,擁有190年歷史的Laphroaig拉弗格酒廠,因接受全島最強勁的海風吹刮,加上堅持創廠以來不曾變動過的傳統蒸釀流程,塑造出最具原始艾雷風格的威士忌,因此被舉世公認是最具代表性的艾雷威士忌蒸餾廠。

高階品味鑑賞家的最愛
Laphroaig 的正統艾雷風格,體現在嗅覺上是強烈的煙燻味、碘藥水味及海風氣息;在味覺上是飽滿粗獷,厚實不失圓潤,尾韻綿長。這種與蘇格蘭高地主流威士忌截然不同的 產品特色,讓Laphroaig以不屑與世俗同流的孤傲形象,令許多不甘平凡的品味鑑賞家為之深深著迷,就連英國王儲查理斯王子也因之成為 Laphroaig的忠誠擁戴者,並且授封皇室徽章。

如同國際知名的酒評人Jack Mclean給予的評價,「Laphroaig的特色是獨樹一格的、是威士忌中的至尊,我曾經推崇它為為蘇格蘭威士忌中的Rolls-Royce,但 Laphroaig的特色不僅如此,它可以更進一步稱為是威士忌領域裡面的F1 Maserati;因為Laphroaig就如同是量身訂製、強勁的、配備著發出怒吼引擎聲的F1 Maserati。」

對那些慣於品嘗蘇格蘭威士忌的老手們來說,Laphroaig流過齒縫舌間後所留下的悠久餘味可說是種別處尋找不到的享受。所以,如果您不曾有機會嘗試過它的味道,請先不要冒然自稱、自己已經是威士忌的行家老手喔!
