First introduced in 2009, Laphroaig 18 Years Old replaced the popular 15-year-old expression. Not to worry, as this whisky more than lives up to its predecessor! It matured in ex-bourbon casks for 18 years and is bottled at 48%. By the end of 2016, Laphroaig 18 Years Old had been discontinued, and early bottlings are increasingly difficult to find. This is an older bottling and comes in the original green tube.
