Laphroaig 10 year old single malt whisky is distilled on the remote Scottish island of Islay in the western isles off the cost of Scotland. Laphroaig, pronounced "La-froyg", translates from a Gaelic word meaning "the beautiful hollow by the broad bay".
In the production of Laphroaig whisky, malted barley is dried over a peat fire. The smoke from this peat fire is found only on Islay and it is this fire that gives Laphroaig its particularly rich smokey flavour.
Best drunk neat Laphroaig has earthy aromas of blue peat smoke, a sweet nuttiness from the barley and a delicate heathery perfume of Islay's streams.
