Sold in America during prohibition for medical purposes, due to the Surgeon General refusing to believe it could be drunk for pleasure, Laphroaig has been awarded a Royal Warrant by Prince Charles in 1994. The biggest selling single malt from Islay, Laphroaig is one of the last distilleries using its own floor maltings.

For the Travel Retail market. QA stands for Quercus Alba, which is the Latin name for the American White Oak. While traditionally this wood is first used by the Bourbon industry this release has been finished in new oak casks which brings the vanilla notes very much to the fore.

Comes with a branded Feis Ile glass.

40% ABV / 1L
