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".
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.

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!

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.

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.

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...

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.

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

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.

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

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

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

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

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
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.

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.
