The mouthfeel is soft and silky. The finish is medium long, with spicy and woody notes, liquorice, smoke and salt. With an alcohol content of 40% by volume, this whisky is predestined for pure enjoyment. Alternatively, it can be drunk classically ‘On The Rocks’.

Region Information:

Islay

On the far edge of the Scotch whisky map, it's supposed that the art of distillation was first brought to Islay by Irish monks. Being remote, it’s an art that flourished in the hands of the islanders, whose illegal operations tested the resolve and means of the tax man. Eventually, the law relaxed, and various whisky makers set up legitimate distilleries, among them a pair of farmers, Donald and Alexander Johnston, who in 1815 founded their distillery on the island’s south coast.

Laphroaig, so called after its location, ‘broad hollow by the bay.’ It would remain in the family's hands for the next 139 years. Find out more about the history of Laphroaig below, using the scroller on the timeline to travel back in time.
