Old Laphroaig 10yo

Postby peergynt323 » Mon Mar 19, 2007 10:56 pm

I picked up a Laphroaig 10yo that was collecting dust in an old liquor store. It has a paper insert that describes it and the foil is noticeably different than more recent bottlings. The label itself looks the same. I'm think it's around the year 2000 or so.

The bottling code starts with LU. I'm not sure if that's what determines the year it was bottled, but my guess is that it does. Does anyone have old Laphroaig bottlings to compare to?

Why don't you email the distillery via the website? I did that once about a lot code and they responded within a few days.

See http://www.maltmadness.com/track2.html#Laphroaig

At least pre-2001 bottlings would seem to have L+number code(s?) in them.

So my guess would be that bottling with LU-start would be at oldest 2001 bottling.
