Laphroaig PX Cask is made with whisky matured in three types of casks – American oak casks, Quarter casks and Pedro Ximénez casks. Pedro Ximénez (also known as PX) is the name of a white Spanish wine grape variety grown in several Spanish wine regions but most notably in the Denominación de Origen (DO) of Montilla-Moriles.
The result is a complex Laphroaig, with the character of each type of barrel detectable in the final flavours, including a gentle but unmistakeable sweetness. Laphroaig is usually very peaty and smoky in nature, but the finish in both American Oak Casks and PX casks give the dram a new depth and much more complexity in the flavour profile. One of the richest, freshest peated whiskies ever made.
