Laphroaig for Father’s Day & Graduation

We recently received a feature request from the folks at DBC Public Relations for a Laphroaig feature leading up to Father’s Day and Graduations. Well we love Laphroaig over here at Whisk(e)y Apostle so it was a no-brainer. Over the next few days we will feature reviews of several expressions provided to us for review including:

  • Laphroaig 10 Year Old Cask Strength
  • Laphroaig Quarter Cask
  • Laphroaig Triple Wood
  • Laphroaig 18 Year

Again, in full disclosure we were provided the above bottles for review but that in no way impacts our reviews.  Additionally, we’ll pull an old bottle of Laphroaig 15 Year from the dusty Whisk(e)y Apostle bunker for comparison to the 18 Year that replaced it.   That one we paid for and sadly it’s the last one we have. 🙁

Laphroaig is spearheading their campaign with the cask strength expression of their 10 year old.  Here’s a little piece from them on gifting Laphroaig this season:

I wanted to share info on a great Scotch that dads and recent grads (21+ up!) will love.

  • Laphroaig 10-Year-Old Cask Strength is a strong, peaty single malt Scotch bottled straight from the barrel and only barrier-filtered to remove remnants of American oak barrel char. Both fathers and graduates will appreciate the thoughtful gift of Laphroaig 10-Year-Old Cask Strength – deserving Dads will be able to enjoy a classic and unforgettable Scotch, and Grads will be given the chance to start a worthy Scotch collection.
  • Your gift will also keep dads and grads in good company, considering that Laphroaig’s most famous patron is recognized by the distinctive coat of arms, which is proudly carried on every bottle. In 1994, HRH Prince Charles personally came to Laphroaig and gave his Royal Warrant — which is especially fitting for Laphroaig, as His Royal Highness is the present “Lord of the Isles.”
  • Lastly, you’ll be giving more than the world’s #1 Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky! Each bottle of Laphroaig contains a lifelong gift: a unique code inside the bottle allows recipients to register as a Friend of Laphroaig and receive a lifetime lease on one square foot of land on the island of Islay, right next to the distillery.

  1. I’ve always wondered – what do you do with one square foot of property on Islay? I mean – if you’re a few bottles in, can you aggregate those plots together in order to fit a folding chair, and post a “keep off the grass” sign?

    As Laphroaig opened my eyes to Scotch, I’m looking forward to the reviews!
