The secret to Laphroaig is that it benefits from the happy circumstances of where it is produced—next to ocean water and on land that gives Laphroaig a unique peaty taste. Laphroaig is one of only a few distilleries that still uses traditional malting floors, and dries and infuses its own malt with the thick blue smoke from old peat-fired kilns. Laphroaig is the #1 selling Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky. Characterized by the pungent, earthy aroma of the blue peat smoke; the sweet nuttiness of the barley; and the delicate, heathery perfume of Islay’s streams. Laphroaig is the only Single Malt Scotch Whisky to bear a Royal Warrant bestowed by HRH Prince Charles.
