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.

Scotch Whisky is seldom aged in new barrels. Bourbon and Tennessee Whiskey casks are usually used for maturation. In addition to that, Whisky is often matured or finished in various wine casks such as Sherry or Port.
90% of all Scotch Whisky released in the market is a blend. That’s a hell of a lot.
One who buys any Laphroaig official bottles has the chance to own a one square foot of land, on the Laphroaig estates.
First-class Whiskies are taxed not only by the state but also by the angels. This refers to the 4% of Whisky that evaporates from the barrels every year, a phenomenon known as the angel’s share.
Whisky or Whiskey? The spelling differs geographically. In Scotland, Japan, and some other parts of the world, distilleries usually spell it Whisky; in Ireland and the USA, they spell it Whiskey.
Is Scotch always Scottish? What do you think? Yes. The answer is yes.
