Whisky Focus - Laphroaig The 1815 Legacy Edition Review

Laphroaig The 1815 Legacy Edition Travel Retail Exclusive

6th February 2017

Laphroaig The 1815 will be available exclusively in travel retail from April.

Laphroaig The 1815 Legacy Edition ReviewLaphroaig 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 Islay, 1815.

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 Laphroaig Four Oak, out of the two new whiskies 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 Master of Malt
