Laphroaig 18 Year Old Islay Single Scotch Whiskey
Laphroaig is one of the best known names in the whisky industry and they produce the best selling smoky whiskies in the world. The name means 'beautiful hollow by the broad bay' in Gaelic. The distillery is located on the south coast of the island of Islay, which lies off the west of Scotland. Laphroaig is famous for producing some of the smokiest whiskies in the world and they own numerous peat bogs around the distillery.
This 18 year old expression of Laphroaig is made in limited quantities each year and savored by a fortunate few. A soft, sweet and spicy Islay peat smoke greets you when you first open the bottle. The immediate taste is an oak sweetness, from 18 years in the barrel. A faint hint of the sea can be detected, testimony to its time maturing on the remote island of Islay.
