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?

Nose: complex and dense, with alternately passion fruit, ashes, almonds, peppers, peat, salt, then evolving into floral and herbaceous aromas.

Palate: lively and unctuous, similar to the first nose, with the addition of spicy, mentholated, but also strongly iodized notes.

Finish: long and concentrated, returning notes of honey, peat, smoked fish, eucalyptus, coconut and lemons.
