Laphroaig Lore Bottling Note

Created by Distillery Manager John Campbell, Laphroaig Lore is said to be the richest ever Laphroaig! Named after the skills passed down over the generations, this permanent addition to the range is matured in a combination of casks including first fill Sherry butts and quarter casks and is said to contain some of their "most precious stock".

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Producer's Tasting Note:
Nose: Rich and smoky with seaside minerals with a hint of ash and bitter chocolate drops. Vanilla follows with oily unroasted chestnuts and a hint of fudge with a malty sweetness. A drop of water adds a creamy clotted cream note with fruit appearing in the form of unripe citrus in a flan glaze.
Palate: Richly peaty with a spicy chilli bite.
Finish: Short dry finish and a long sweet aftertaste.

Laphroaig Lore Reviews

Fair at best

Not worth the price of entry $99. For me Lagavulin 16 is simply the best!

15th September 2018

Very Impressive

Compared this with Laga 16 and Ardbeg Ugie (distinguished company for sure) and for me this trumps them both, sure it's a tad more expensive but the

25th August 2018

Rich snd deep

Incredible well rounded, with long lingering aftertastes. It is not really pungent, but will appeal to those who appreciate depth, and wish to sip slowly with just a touch of water.

Just finished my bottle of Lore with my nephew, and we decided to throw it up against the Laphroaig Quartercask, and Glenmorangie. No sense comparing it to the Highland, but I expected the Quartercask to put up a good fight. I still like the Quartercask, but it's similarity to the 10yo is much more obvious when you compare it to Lore. Lore is just so much smoother, but then still has that deep rich peety punch without the iodine after taste. This is a winner.

Would rather have two of the 10 YO, even one.

As a devotee of the 10 YO since 1983, I was expecting something really special from the bottle my son brought back from America. But not so; not too bad on the nose, but the palate just didn't live up to the promise of the label. Maybe my palate is jaded with age at 78.

Give me More of the Lore

Those who can afford this bottle will be treated to Laphraoig's complex sweet and savory notes that are far more mellow than the offerings found in the Ten Year and Quarter Cask. Velvet on the
tongue and Laphraoig in the heart.

18th March 2018

Very Solid

Smoother and more refined than the 1815 but still a nice crashing wave of peat and ash. A drop of water expresses the citrousy undertones. Not as blown away as I’ve been with the Ardbeg Correvreckan or Kelpie, but hell of a dram nonetheless

15th March 2018


Best Laph I had so far...

10th September 2017

Love it

Love it

One of the best Laphroaigs!

With five components ranging from seven to twenty one years old and barrels ranging from quarter-casks to oloroso, this is a complex and rich experience! Fruit, cinnamon, Meyer lemons, custard, creosote and leather. The young whiskies keep it bright, the old whiskies keep it mellow and give it the leather.

Lovely stuff! I just hope they keep the 21yo in there for future bottlings!

24th February 2017

Lovely Laphroaig

I enjoyed Quarter Cask, Triple Wood, PX Cask and An Cuan Mór. This just adds to an already impressive NAS range. Lots of peat, thick, sweet with roasted elements to it. Lovely dram 90/100.

15th January 2017

Very Good Islay Whisky

with drops of water to smooth taste but I prefer more for example An Cuan Mòr or 25 year old in same distillery or Ardbeg Uigeadail or Lagavulin 18 year old in same price category. I prefer Islay products; Lagavulin, Ardbeg, Laphroaig and Caol Ila.

Close to Perfection

If you like peaty whisky that is balanced by an ever growing sweet aftertaste this one is for you. I've had my share of drams in the past (NAS, seasoned old whisky, independent bottlers etc.). This one is right in the top five ever for me. Great combination of casks and ages by John Campbell. And I'm not even an Islay enthusiast, usually prefer Speyside...

10th December 2016


It is great, i must say the best Laph I ever had. It's smooth, it's Islay, it's rich in taste and complexity. If you like peaty but mellow - this is the one. The aftertaste keeps on lingering. It's great in every way... Drink this after a good meal.

9th December 2016


Absolutely epic!

NAS Lore

A little sceptical about a $200 cnd NAS from Laphroaig, but I do like it. It's def. Laphroaig on the nose, lots of ash and smoke, the sherry comes through big on the palate. The mouth feel is a little like Uigidail.....but the finish is swift and dry......Good at 60 pounds but not sure at $200 Canadian

15th July 2016


I have over 150 scotches in my collection and I was happy to find this one. If you love Laphroaig and chili, then this is going to be your best friend. It is a chili pepper explosion with the nice Laphroaig peat. The bad reviews are only from those who don't like Laphroaig in the first place. If you're an Islay fan, then you will love this.

10th July 2016

Love it.

A total surprise! I had never heard of it until I tried it at a friends house. Wonderful. 5 stars for sure.

2nd July 2016

It's fast turning into a favourite

Having just come back from a trip to Islay, I have to say this was one of my favourites of the trip. It wasn't even on my list of bottles to buy, but after tasting, quite a few times I was straight in for the buy. It is characteristic of many older laphroaigs, being a mixture of a variety of older ages of the managers picking.

Defiantly worth a try

31st May 2016

Wow that's good

Having actually visited islay been to most of the distilleries, my friend and I concluded this to be the star and frankly blow the socks off Ardbeg and Bowmore and others at the £80 price bracket

Toronto Tim (Canada) - I pity new single malt drinkers

Another 'Froig NAS for a hefty price. I will be patient and try one, but I doubt it be twice as good as Laph (NAS) Quarter Cask. For the price, new drinkers will abit less in their wee pocket to try others....TT

29th March 2016

Complex & Mellow

Despite it's hefty price tag I can't say I'm unhappy with my purchase via FoL. It's very mellow, indicating it's not full of 'young' whiskies, with a beautifully complex finish that develops the longer you let it linger and sip more of course!

16th March 2016

Tell us what´s inside...

Or do you fear that no one will buy after you have shown us......
Hopefully a very good Whisky, for this price it should be. If it is, i will buy.
But I do not think it´s twice as good as Ardbeg Uigeadail.

10th March 2016

Not for me

I am simply fed up with this these overpriced NAS whiskies which will be good but unlikely to be better than the standard bottlings at less than a half of the cost.
