Le Bon's Laphroaig Collection
An Cuan Mor (Gaelic for 'big ocean') is a travel retail bottling of Laphroaig. Aged in first-fill American white oak bourbon barrels, it is finished in European oak. Rich and spicy with a maritime character.
Originally released for the travel retail market, Laphroaig PX cask is aged initially in American oak and then in quarter casks before a final finishing period in ex-Pedro Ximenez sherry casks. A rich, sweeter and full-bodied expression of this Islay favourite.
Laphroaig 18years old was introduced in 2009 as a replacement for the old 15 year-old (Prince Chuck's sorely missed favourite whisky, lest we forget). This is a stronger, altogether gutsier affair at 48%.
