Product Description

PX CASK

100 cl  48% vol
We’ve been making our whisky here for over 200 years, but little has changed. We’re not fans of progress for the sake of it.
The first maturation of this special expression is in ex-bourbon barrels, followed by transfer to quarter casks. The third maturation is in large European oak ‘PX’ casks, which originally contained rare Pedro Ximénez sherry. The result is a complex Laphroaig, with the character of each type of barrel detectable in the final flavours, including a gentle but unmistakeable sweetness

TASTING NOTES

  • COLOUR  Antique Gold.
  • NOSE        Sherry aroma of sweet sultanas and raisins with a hint of sweet liquorice.
  • BODY         An intense and profound depth.
  • PALATE     Peat and oakiness and a sweeter heavy sherry flavour.
  • FINISH       Concentrated peat and thick sherried oak with a deep dryness.
  • Our home is a breathtaking and rugged island cast adrift off the West Coast of Scotland.

    Islay (pronounced eye-la) lies more westerly than Land’s End and further south than Edinburgh or Glasgow.

  • In winter, Atlantic storms can isolate the island, sweeping ferries off course and forcing back aircraft.
  • In spring, the island becomes a garden warmed by the Gulf Stream. Year-round the island is a haven for wildlife – white tailed sea eagles, pilot whales, bottle-nosed dolphins, otters and fallow deer to name but a few. Mysteries of Islay’s history are still being unearthed.
  • Hillsides are littered with standing stones erected by Bronze Age Celts. Later, the island became an early Christian settlement, visited by St. Columba it then became a Viking stronghold.
  • Over the millennia, Islay’s island geography and weather has shaped the communities that live and work here. Strong, independent and uncompromising folk with a deep sense of community spirit.
  • We appreciate the arduous journey anyone makes to visit our island – and are always ready with a warm handshake and a dram for those who make the trip.
