Laphroaig 10 Years Old is the standard version of the distillery. Until today, it has been distilled in the same way it used to be when Ian Hunter invented it, more than 75 years ago.

Accounting for its such smoky and rich taste, the distillery's malted barley has been dried over a peat fire. Laphroaig distillery still malts a part of its barley in this exact way (about 30%).

This 10 Year-Old Laphroaig possesses a gushy, bold personnality, and reveals  a rich palette of exotic and red fruits, seaweed flavours of suprising smoothness, over a heavily peated backdrop.

Its unique taste made it famous in the US during prohibition (1920-1933), where it was imported as medicinal alcohol.

No one knows the full history of Laphroaig as much of it has been lost in the midst of time unfortunately.

For a long time on Islay as in all Scotland, distilling was illegal so no one spoke of the numerous small stills, easy to move around and usually hidden in farms. If you wished a refill, just a nod and a wink in the right direction!

We know that the Johnston’s established a farm in Laphroaig around 1800 as, a while after, Charles & Willie Doig were asked to work “at the distillery”. From 1815, the Laphroaig reputation grew and caught the attention of tax agents who established “officially” Johnston & Johnston. This is how the great Laphroaig adventure began.

It is said a good story is about a good story-teller and who better than one of the former distillery managers? Discover the notes a visitor took after his interview with Iain Hendernson, retired in 1999. You may also check the complete history of the last two hundred years of the Laphroaig chronology.
