Beam Suntory, has today announced the launch of a new core range expression from its Laphroaig single malt Scotch whisky brand.

This latest release from the Islay based distillery, is said to deliver a rich and full bodied flavour. The marriage of casks creates notes of Manuka honey, bacon and maple syrup, alongside the classic smoke, seaweed and hint of salt that Laphroaig is famous for.
Commenting on the news, John Campbell, Laphroaig Distillery Manager, said: “We are so excited to announce the release of our unique and premium expression, Sherry Oak, taking our iconic Laphroaig 10 Year Old and finishing it with the sweet flavours of Oloroso sherry cask. This is a perfect accompaniment to any whisky collection and a celebrated addition to the Laphroaig range.”
Laphroaig 10 Year Old Sherry Oak, will be available later this month from specialist retailers, for a RRP of £65.00.
