Laphroaig Cairdeas Origin
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.
Rounded and smooth, the butter spreads itself, melts and reveals Laproaig's signature smoky heart. It's pungent but not overpowering, a cushion of smoke rather than an enveloping cloud. But this is a big mouth-filling whisky; it just does it with finesse. That sweetness from the nose is heavily pronounced, and tastes remarkably like the crumbly fudge you find all over Islay.
