Laphroaig Single Malt Scotch Whisky Three Bottle CollectionLaphroiags 10 Years Old 750 MLLaphroiags 10 Years Old Cask Strength 750 MLLaphroaig Cairdeas Scotch 750 MLLaphroiags 10 years old single malt is the original Laphroaig, the real McCoy, distilled the fashion as Ian Hunter invented it nearly 8 decades ago. It is a beautifully savory whisky, the unadulterated classic essence of Laphroaig. Those enjoying the 10 Year Old will first notice the bold, smoky taste, followed by a hint of seaweed and a surprising sweetness.Laphroaig Cask Strength 10 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky is aged for ten years in the distillery's warehouses, which are situated along the shores of Loch Laphroaig. As a result, the whisky is imbued with a slightly salty tang that compliments the whisky's notes of peat and vanilla. Aged for over a decade and bottled at cask strength, this whisky was awarded the title "Best Single Malt Whisky in the World" by Whisky Magazine.Laphroaig Cairdeas Scotch meaning friendship in Gaelic, we can't think of a better way to toast our Friends around the world. This year's release showcases a special double maturation, slowing maturing in first fill bourbon casks and then Fino Sherry casks that were laid to rest in Warehouse 8 and 10. Barrier filtered and non chill filtered, you'll find this whisky has notes of toasted almonds, dried fruit and sea salt, all of which perfectly complement Laphroaig's signature peaty flavor.This full-bodied variant is the foundation of all Laphroaig expressions and comes with a long finish.For over a century, the distillery would remain in the hands of one of Johnston's descendants. In 1954, however, Ian Hunter passed away childless and bequeathed the distillery to Bessie Williamson, a secretary that had been working at the distillery for two decades. Hunter was incredibly protective of the distillery while he slowly revealed its secrets to Williamson after she had earned his trust, Hunter prevented a cooper who was employed at the distillery from publishing his memoirs because they described the workings of the distillery in too great a detail.Laphroaig Single Malt Whisky is one of the most flavorful and intense whiskies made anywhere in the world. During Prohibition, it was one of the few whiskies still legally imported into the United States, as it was considered a medicinal spirit. Laphroaig Single Malt is made from the finest Scottish barley, which is malted at the distillery and dried over a peat flame. Unlike other distilleries which source peat from the Scottish mainland, the peat used to smoke Laphroaig barley is made from the heather, mosses and lichens of Islay and adds a distinct iodine-like flavor to the whisky.After the barley has been malted and peated, it is fermented before being twice-distilled through Laphroaig's copper-pot stills. The unique stills have an usually flat base and flat surfaces, which lends to the overall intensity of the whisky. After the whisky has been distilled, it is aged in seasoned oak barrels, which are re-charred prior to being filled. The re-charring process caramelizes the remaining sugars in the barrel, and adds slightly sweet notes of vanilla and nutty dough to the whisky.It was through a fortuitous sequence of events that Laphroaig came into existence. In 1815, Donald and Alexander Johnston leased 1,000 acres of land on the island of Islay. Their intent was to raise and sell cattle on the land and as a result, they began growing barley to be used as feed for their livestock. Following a particularly bountiful harvest, the brothers distilled the excess grains they had grown into whisky, and sold it to the inhabitants of the island. Soon thereafter, the brothers found it more profitable to distill whisky than to raise cattle, and Laphroaig (pronounced La-froyg) Distillery was born.The distillery remained in the family for over a century of its bloodline, until 1954, when, upon his death, a childless Ian Hunter bequeathed the distillery to Bessie Williamson, a secretary that had been working at the distillery for two decades. Hunter, who was quite obsessive over the family distillery, slowly revealed its secrets to Williamson after she had earned his trust. It has been said that Hunter was so protective of the distillery that he prevented a cooper who was employed at the distillery, from publishing his memoirs, because they described the workings of the distillery in too great detail.
