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.

A young Laphroaig, whose maturation has been given a boost by finishing in smaller "Quarter Casks". This gives the whisky a greater exposure to the wood. Jim Murray awarded it a runner up position in the 2012 Whisky Bible in the "Best no age statement single malt scotch of the year" category.

Cask Type: oak casks and finish in quarter casks

48% ABV / 1 litre
