Laphroaig 15 Year Old

15 YEAR OLD
Laphroaig 15 Year Old is the richer, more mature and succulent elder brother of the robust 10 Year Old. It collects awards every year like no other whisky
Their proudest ‘award’ is HRH the Prince of Wales’s emblem which sits proudly on every bottle of Laphroaig single malt. Prince Charles flew to Islay in 1995 to personally give them his ‘Fleur de Lys’. It is understand that their 15 year old expression is his personal favourite.



Some have compared the moment of its discovery to the experience of climbing one of Scotland's rugged mountains. You have braved the wilds, followed your own independent way and at last reached the very top. The view is magnificent - well worth the effort. Your first sip of Laphroaig 15 Year Old will reward you with the same sense of exhilaration. There are very few "ultimate" highs in life. But this is one of them. Their 15 year expression is the reason they proudly display HRH Prince of Wales coat of arms on every bottle.
Mildly smoky, with sweet, warm undertones - and just a hint of the sea - Laphroaig 15 Year Old is fulfilling and utterly unforgettable. Made in tiny quantities, it is esteemed and savoured around the world by a fortunate few.
