Laphroaig Lore Scotch Whiskey
Lore is a complex blend of classical Laphroaig styles and various ages of Laphroaig. The marriage draws from the peaty power of Laphroaig in the same vein as Quarter Cask but with the smoothness of double-matured stock finished in European oak hogsheads. To add even further depth and complexity, we used our most heavily peated whisky, matured in ex-Laphroaig barrels, along with some fully sherry-matured casks. To ensure none of this amazing flavor was lost, we bottled Lore at a full 48% ABV and simply barrier-filled the bottles before bottling. The result is stunningly complex.
