This unique expression from Laphroaig combines the unforgettable flavour of our 10-year-old whisky with the sweet, aromatic flavours from the Oloroso sherry casks. This marriage of casks creates a rich, full-bodied flavour with notes of Manuka honey, bacon and maple syrup alongside the classic smoke, seaweed and hint of salt that Laphroaig is known & loved for.
The European oak sherry casks are carefully selected to complement the unique and much-loved taste of Laphroaig. The additional sweetness and character of the Oloroso casks add complexity and balance to create a unique and exciting expression, but one that stays true to the character of Laphroaig.

10 Year Old Sherry Oak
Laphroaig Sherry Oak Finish marries the distinctive taste of our 10 year old single malt with the sweetness of European oak Oloroso barrels.
Alongside the unforgettable flavors of Laphroaig — medicinal and smoky with a hint of seaweed — this single malt Scotch has notes of Manuka honey and maple syrup sweetness. This is anchored by savory notes of leather and bacon, making this a truly complex and full-bodied dram.
This whisky is the perfect choice for those who have tried and loved Laphroaig 10, and now want to expand their horizons. It's best served neat: simply add a splash of fresh water or a cube of ice, if you prefer.
MADE WITH THE UTMOST CARE
Taste of Islay
Made in a time-honored way laid down by two centuries of master distillers, Laphroaig Sherry Oak Finish starts the same way as our other single malt scotch whiskies. The malted barley is cold-smoked and dried over a peat fire, where it picks up the distinctive smoky flavor which makes our peated whisky so beloved.
After distillation, the spirit matures for ten years in a combination of refill Oloroso sherry barrels and American oak ex-bourbon barrels. For its final transformation, it's moved into European Oak Oloroso sherry barrels where it takes on and develops sweet and spicy aromas — along with a deep amber color like liquid gold.
Laphroaig has been producing award winning whisky on the Isle of Islay since 1815. This remote island sits off the west coast of Scotland, and its shores are lapped by the waves of the Atlantic Ocean. Islay's natural features make Laphroaig whiskies truly special, from the peat which fuels our fires to the crisp, clean water of the Kilbride Stream. You can taste Scotland in every sip.
