Laphroaig Scotch

I don't claim to be a Scotch afficionado but I do like to make note of really unusual alcohols and Laphroaig is definitely in that category.



Claiming to be one of the most "richly" flavoured Scotches the strength of the woodiness in this whiskey was enough to stop me in my tracks and I admit I could not finish the glass, and this was before we got to the quarter cask stronger flavoured version.

Unusual and very much worth seeking out if you like brown liquors, it was certainly a taste experience for me, courtesy of

  1. Laphroaig is a beautifully peaty Scotch, and a great starting point for moving away to less traditional choices.

    There are a number of favourite drinking holes that stock it, and it's always a great starting point to the evening.

    I'd suggest trying it again without all the ice, possibly - just a few drops of water - then again, that's going to make those flavours even stronger, so maybe not?
