History re-peat-s itself.

Laphroaig distillery was founded in 1815 by Donald and Alexander Johnston and is located in Port Ellen, Isle of Islay. Laphroaig is famous for producing some of the smokiest Whiskies in the world with a distinct flavor, in huge part influenced by the vicinity of the coast and the high moss content of its peat. We’re talking about Whisky royalty right here, so it’s no wonder this is also the favorite of Prince Charles, who gave Laphroaig permission to use his royal warrant on all the bottles.

Speaking of the heir to the British throne - you want to know which Laphroaig particularly was his favorite? It is the 15-year-old, yes Sir. Once upon a time the flagship expression of the vaunted establishment, it has been discontinued in 2009, but to the delight of Whisky fans around the world makes a reappearance as Laphroaig 15 YO 200th anniversary for a limited time only, as part of the bicentennial celebrations of the distillery.

For those of you, who expect a wild rapacious Laphroaig in the bottle, be prepared for a lighter, more elegant expression. The same mellow, peaty flavor that made a hit 30 years ago and gained all those praise and awards throughout the past decades is back. It is made in the same way as the original, where selective casks with particular qualities are hand-pick to provide the special flavor.

The original 15 YO is extremely rare, a true Whisky treasure and of course priced accordingly. So here’s your chance to grab a bargain, one of the most sought-after bottles of the year and a piece of history to boot.
