When Europe meets America.

Laphroaig Distillery was founded in 1815 by Donald and Alexander Johnston and is located in Port Ellen, Isle of Islay. Although Laphroaig isn't allowed to put the prefix "Royal" in its name (yet), rumor has it his royal prince Charles of Wales is a fan of the "L" Whisky. The 15-year-old is reportedly the prince's favorite Scotch. For a long while there’s been frenzy for Laphroaig’s Scotch, especially those less-available expressions.
 

Laphroaig 25 Year Old is an interesting flavor fusion of Sherried, oaky flavors from the European Oloroso Sherry casks and the creamy, smooth, sweet flavors from the American Bourbon barrels. Two most different maturation flavors come together here, made smoother by the 25 years it has had for gentle maturation.

Whisky distilling goes way back to 1494 when the first recorded batch was made by a posse of monks who acquired about 60 gallons of barley and decided to turn it into "aqua vitae". They created the first 1,500 bottles of Scotch in History.
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.
Maker's Mark is Laphroaig's main source for barrels.
Is Scotch always Scottish? What do you think? Yes. The answer is yes.
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.
Single Malt Scotch Whisky is made in Scotland using a pot still distillation process at a single distillery, with malted barley as the only grain ingredient. It must be matured in oak casks in Scotland for at least three years (most Single Malts are matured longer, though).
