"Laphroaig" 10 Years Old - a unique whiskey which the distillation is performed in the same way as 75 years ago, when it was designed by Mr. Ian Hunter. In the production of "Laphroaig" malted barley is dried over peat smoke in the Isle, which gives the whiskey a particularly rich flavor. Bold smoky tones complemented the taste of whiskey algae nuances and surprising sweetness. "Lafroyg" 10-year-old - rich drink with a long aftertaste, which is the basis of all whiskey expressions "Laphroaig".
Lafroyg distillery was founded by Alex and Donald Johnston in the early 1800s. Until 1954, the distillery has remained in the family's possession, but was bequeathed Besi Williamson, who worked in the secretary for many years. Overnight Ms. Williamson has become the most important woman in the whiskey industry. She sold the distillery of Long John Distillers, and she in 1972, went into retirement. True, Ms. Williamson was not the only female manager of Laphroaig - to her distillery operated Katerina Dzhonson and her sister Isabella. Despite the fact that, according to experts, the level of PPM (number of particles of phenol - a measure of "opacity" of whiskey) in a modern Laphroaig markedly lower than 25-30 years ago, this whiskey soaked in the smell and taste of the sea, is considered one of the most powerful and recognizable among all the islands.
Laphroaig - one of the few distilleries to preserve the traditional malt house, which ensures consistency and visibility of its products. Thanks to its specific taste and aroma reminiscent of medicines, Laphroaig during Prohibition in the US was sold in pharmacies. Prints Charlz likes the whiskey, so the label is decorated with the inscription "Supplier of the Royal Court" - an honor for which many are fighting, but not many can get. The most smoky - 10-year-old whiskey, increasing the shutter speed drops smokiness, but the drink becomes a deep and diverse. The so-called cask strength bottling official Laphroaig - actually standard, but simply increased.
