Character Goatson
This was distilled at Laphroaig in 1997, and it was initially matured in bourbon barrels. Murray McDavid then selected it, and took it to Bruichladdich, where it was reracked into incredible Chateau Latour Pauillac casks. It was then finished (or "enhanced", should we say) in the wine casks, before bottling. A release of 1,300 bottles.

Scotland is home to more than 20 million casks of maturing Whisky. That’s four for every person living there. Nuts!
Blended Whiskies are the result of years of craftsmanship and dedication. A master blender does not simply wake up one day with a profound ability to create a cohesive and enjoyable liquid. From nosing the liquid to working out quantities of each different grain and malt to go into the blend, a master blender can take years, if not decades, to train.
One who buys any Laphroaig official bottles has the chance to own a one square foot of land, on the Laphroaig estates.
Laphroaig was the only 'legal' Whisky to be sold in the US during Prohibition. Officials were persuaded that Laphroaig Whisky could be used for medical purposes, since it had a strong iodine character.
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.
90% of all Scotch Whiskies sold are Blends.
