Laphroaig The 1815 will
be available exclusively in travel retail from
The 1815 Legacy Edition is a new travel retail exclusive
expression which will be available from April 2017.
The new whisky takes its name from the year the
Laphroaig distillery was founded on the Isle of
Laphroaig The 1815 is the creation of the current
Laphroaig Distillery Manager, John Campbell, it
doesn't carry an age statement and it was matured in
first-fill American Bourbon barrels then it was
finished in larger new European oak hogsheads before
being bottle at 48% ABV.
Laphroaig describe The 1815 as deep sunset orange in
colour, with aromas of burnt apricot and raisin,
they say it combines the signature peat smoke of
Laphroaig with soft oak and notes of rich
caramelised dark fruit and a dried fruit, nut, peat
and oiled-wood finish.
The Laphroaig The 1815 Legacy Edition will be launched in travel
retail in April alongside the new The 1815 Legacy
Edition certainly sounds the more appealing to me and
I am sure the thousands of Friends of Laphroaig but
it doesn't come cheap for a no age statement whisky,
it will be priced around £90 and presented in a 70cl
bottle. Hopefully the price tag is an indication
that Laphroaig know they have bottled something
special enough to be named The 1815 Legacy Edition.
If you cant wait to April you will find the current
Laphroaig whisky range available from specialist online whisky shops such as
