Laphroaig Select

Sorry about this...

We can't actually ship Laphroaig Select to the United States at the moment (although we're working hard to fix that).

In the meantime, our friends over at The Whisky Shop might be able to help you out.

Thank you for your support and understanding 🙂

Laphroaig Select Bottling Note

For the Laphroaig Select, the Islay distillery has taken whisky from a number of different types of cask, including Oloroso Sherry butts, white American oak, Pedro Ximenez seasoned hoggies, Quarter casks and first fill bourbon casks. Quite a "selection", wouldn't you say? A laid-back addition to the Laphroaig core range of single malts.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Classic, medicinal peat notes up front, supported by citrus-y, chocolate-y sweet notes and soft barley.

Palate: The peat is there, but it's taking it easy and letting the bright notes of lemon, green apples and mint stand out. Darker baking spice notes develop further on.

Finish: Medium length, peat remaining in sight until it's over.

Overall: It doesn't pack a huge punch of peat, which might be just the ticket for introducing someone to the wonders of Islay's smoky expressions.

Laphroaig Select Reviews

Sweet and smoke, great entry into Laphroaig

I really enjoyed this dram. Full disclosure I compared it to compass box peat monster. I liked the sweet and smoke. Yes the nose is medicinal and iodine, but it's Laphroaig so that is expected. This is a great after dinner or late evening dram sitting in your favorite chair listening to relaxing music or chatting with friends. Good value too. Good entry into Laphroaig and not as intense as other offerings by Laphroaig. Still prefer Talisker 10 or Ardbeg 10, but this is solid.

Absolute Delight!

Very well balanced whiskey
The smoke doesn't over power other notes, it lets you enjoy all the flavours and a cloud of smoke is released once you swallow.

Not my favourite

I have written a few reviews of whiskies I have tried, this is the only one I haven't liked, as a "Friend" of the distillery it gives me no pleasure to say, that in my humble opinion, this one misses the mark for me.

Less complex and lighter than the original, but the flavour notes are still there

It's like Laphroaig lite, but the more I drink it, the more I like it.
Less complex and lighter, younger tasting than the original, but the notes are there and still more interesting than a lot of cheaper island malts.
It's not a classic, but I like it!

A decent entry level islay whiskey

I was dubious at first with the price disparity between the Select and the 10 year old.

For fans of the 10 YO, you don't have that really smokey/medicinal flavour that is surnominous with Laphroig.

If you are a fan of the 10 YO this may come across as a disappointment, due to the lack of nose, palate and finish in comparison.

However, for me the Select is smoother and for anyone wanting to try Laphroig for the first time or just trying whiskey, I would recommend this to start with, as you do get the taste of the 10 YO, just more toned down.

Disappointing taste and a strong medicinal smell

Given to me as a Xmas present. A VERY unpleasant medicinal smell and taste. I have considered giving it to someone else but this might end a friendship!!

A great disappointment

I drink the 10-year old version and I drink quarter cask, but frankly I think this has been selected from all the failures at the distillery and cobbled together, rough tasting unpleasant don't bother, I know it's cheap but you will be better off buying a more expensive laphroaig like the other two I have named

Terrible taste

Hospital taste

I had to try for myself.

I’ve read quite a few scathing reviews of this. It’s perfectly fine. If you like Laphroaig 10 and Quarter cask, stick to those. This offers nothing new. And if you do try it, don’t compare - it won’t go well. It’s a decent peated scotch and 100% the best way to introduce someone (who isn’t heavily into peated whiskey) to Laphroaig.

Favourite malt

Absolutely love this - my favourite malt. Complex and deep without the in your face iodine of the 10 year old, which allows the other more subtle flavours through.
