An Cuan Mor, Gaelic for "Big Ocean", has been battered by the Atlantic seaspray. This rich and spicy Single Malt, has matured in first fill American casks and then in European casks.

The distinctive Laphroaig identity is clearly here, with the first medicinal hit of the peat, softened by the caramelised Bourbon barrels and the sweetness of apricot and raisins. Bottled without chill-filtration to retain all the flavours of the whisky, Laphroaig An Cuan Mor reveals fig flavours superbly interwoven with oaky notes and dry earth scents.

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.

Colour: burnt orange.

Nose: rich aromas of figs, developing onto floral (lavender) notes and peppery flavours, with wild honey, vanilla, sweet almonds and dried seaweed.

Palate: full-bodied, peppery, spicy, with liquorice and briny notes. Opens on oaky scents, with orange peel, humus and a distant puff of an extinct fire.

Finish: lingering onto creamy nuts with the typical, peaty notes of Laphroaig.
