Laphroaig 16 Year Old 48%
This is the new 16 Year Old limited edition release from the Laphroaig distillery.
Remarkable things happen when our iconic whisky is distilled and then poured into first-fill ex-bourbon barrels to age for 16 years
These barrels yield a bright gold colour, more intense vanilla flavour and subtle spice notes during the maturation process. The perfect complement to Laphroaig's signature smoky flavour.

Laphroaig is located on Islay’s south coast and was founded by farmers Donald and Alexander Johnston in 1815. Named after its position ‘broad hollow by the bay’ the distillery remained in family ownership for over a hundred and thirty years. Back in the early days word spread of this particularly delicious whisky with it’s soft, peaty water source and the farmers quickly realised distilling was a more lucrative proposition.
Laphroaig is now owned by Beam Suntory and is the largest seller of single malt whisky on Islay. The distillery’s production capacity is 3.3 million litres of alcohol and with 34 mashes per week it has been running at full capacity for a number of years. The whisky is know for its smoky style which is individual and unique. Being so close to the coast the the peat used to smoke the barley has a higher moss content which adds to its distinctive character. Interestingly a great series of bottling’s named The Ian Hunter Story have been introduced which pay homage to the last of the Johnston family to own Laphroaig. In 2022 book four of the five Ian Hunter Story series was released.
