Majestic Scotch treasure from Laphroaig.

It all started in 1911, when a boy was born in North-East of Scotland. His name was Alexander Murray, a true farmer that marched to his own drumbeat. He grew barley and sold it to local Single Malt producers. He loved Whisky and this love came through genes to Steve Lipp, his great-nephew. He established an independent bottling company bearing his great uncle's name. Based in LA, it searches for the next best thing and lucky for us, they are really good at what they do.

Now, they unearthed a fantastic Scotch made by Laphroaig, a symphony of smoke and peat and sweet fruitiness. Winning two golden medals in 2018, this Islay gem has a cool secret: its peat comes from unique peat beds of Glen Machrie. The peat there contains high levels of “Sphagnum”, which we promise is a real thing. It’s a species of moss that produces iodine-like flavors during production. What comes out of ex-Bourbon casks after twelve years is a magnificent, heavily peated, layered, and grand Scotch Whisky.

Beer and malt Whisky seem to have quite a bit in common. Both drinks begin with malted barley, which deliver the enzymes and sugars needed for fermentation when steeped in hot water. The two go their separate ways at the wash stage, where they're fermented or aged to become the adult beverages you know and love.
Can Scotch go bad? Technically, an unopened bottle of Scotch can last forever. Air is the only true evil to Whisky; once the liquid is oxidized it is no longer immortal. After opening, as long as you store your Whisky in a cool, dry place, it will last another 5 years.
One who buys any Laphroaig official bottles has the chance to own a one square foot of land, on the Laphroaig estates.
Categories of Scotch Whisky: Single malt, Blended malt (formerly called Vatted malt), blended, single grain and blended grain Scotch.
Scotland is home to more than 20 million casks of maturing Whisky. That’s four for every person living there. Nuts!
90% of all Scotch Whiskies sold are Blends.
