Beam Suntory has continued adding to its Laphroaig portfolio in the wake of the brand's 200th anniversary with a new non-age-statement release, Laphroaig Lore.

The Islay malt is blended from a variety of casks including first-fill Bourbon barrels, quarter casks and Oloroso Sherry hogsheads, Beam Suntory said today. It will launch in selected global markets next week.

Laphroaig Lore follows a range of Laphroaig releases last year to celebrate the distillery's double centenary, including a 32-year-old and a 16-year-old in a 35cl bottle. However, last year Beam Suntory said it had ceased the availability of Laphroaig 18-year-old because of a lack of stock.
