Laphroaig Islay Whisky Cask-Matured Beer

Islay; a rugged, wild isle that’s famed for its dramatic landscape and uncompromising single malt whisky. Where rich, peated earth, the sea spray in the air and centuries of craftsmanship, all infuse the whisky with distinctive, complex flavours. And there are few whiskies more complex and more emphatic than the Laphroaig Islay Single Malt Whisky.

For this year’s release, we have taken Laphroaig First Fill Casks in which we have slowly matured an Innis & Gunn beer, we've then finished the beer in Laphroaig Port Casks. Absorbing all the deep flavours from the oak – spicy woodsmoke and peat – the beer adds its own rich, roasted flavour. The end result is something as unforgettable as the island and the whisky that inspires it.

Islay Whisky Cask is a 7.4% Scottish Red Ale, slowly matured in Laphroaig single malt first fill scotch whisky and finished in port casks – from one of the most renowned malt whiskies in the world.

A sensational creation

The Islay whisky cask beer matured in Laphroaig casks is beautiful. I had no idea what to expect but what a marriage between Innis and Gunn and Laphroaig! Will definitely be buying again if I can!

Smooth criminal

When the bottle was opened and I could smell it...WOW!! It's against the law to make something this good, tasty and smooth dark beer with a taste of whiskey and smoke. Absolutely loved it, one of the best beer I have ever tasted, possibly even THE best.
