It’s well-known that those who drink Laphroaig are different; they’re unlike the rest. They search for a mystery, magic, and profundity in this unique, clean and complex whisky. They know that its smokiness is unlike any other due to the unique seaweed quality of the peat dug up on Islay. They know that it is the last distillery to malt the barley by hand. They know that the long sleep of maturation is carried out in warehouses lapped by the waves of the North Atlantic.
Barry MacAfter, distillery manager, says it perfectly: ‘When it comes to flavour, I think it’s the one thing that really excites me, working here in Laphroaig. It’s always that pursuit of these iconic flavours we’re searching for, and with Laphroaig 10, that pursuit almost seems like you’ve made it. It hits at the right notes.’
Enjoy neat, but if you wish for that famous medicinal tang, add a splash of water.
So, raise your glass to the fraternity of Laphroaig and declare the immortal toast, ‘Here’s to us. There’s none like us. God damn the rest.’
