Laphroaig 15 Year Old Islay Single Malt. Image courtesy Laphroaig/Beam Suntory.A mainstay of the Laphroaig range for many years, this single malt was brought back on a limited basis in 2015 as part of the distillery’s 200th anniversary celebration, and many Laphroaig fans wish it would remain a permanent part of the range.

The nose has notes of grapefruit, brine, a soft peatiness, cooked fruits, and is slightly medicinal with smokiness that builds over time in the glass. The taste has a good peaty tang with touches of black pepper, barbecue sauce, brine, and a touch of grapefruit in the background. The finish is long, smooth, and smoky…a classic Laphroaig in every sense! (June, 2015)
