From the Whiskey Jug
"Recently the lads at Laphroaig got the idea to take some traditional Laphroaig juice, which is aged in ex-bourbon barrels and give it an additional or “final” maturation in brand new American Oak barrels. During this maturation the barrels spent at least 6 months in the warmest parts of the Laphroaig warehouse (ie highest) during the warmest part of the year to ensure the wood fully expanded so the whisky could get in and absorb some of that American Oak flavor, but the idea didn’t stop there.
After creating the “heart” of the Select they then vatted (blended) it with some of their Quarter Cask, PX Cask and Triple Wood whisky at varying levels and created 6 different combinations. Those 6 combinations then went out to some of the Friend’s Of Laphroaig who voted for their favorite vatting. That winning blend is what’s in this bottle . . . ."
