A classic, smoky Islay Single malt served with strawberry jam… and it works. 

 
The Laphroaig distillery was founded in 1815 by Donald and Alexander Johnston and is located in Port Ellen, on the Isle of Islay. Although Laphroaig isn't allowed to put the prefix ‘Royal’ in its name (yet), rumour has it even his royal Prince-ness Charles of Wales is a fan. The 15-year-old is reportedly the Prince's favourite Scotch. For a while now there’s been a frenzy for Laphroaig’s Scotch, especially for the less available expressions. 
 
Laphroaig is the Islay single malt by which all others are judged. They are the standard bearers for the hearty, smoky style that Islay is famous for. Their core line up has no fewer than a dozen single malt drams, plus a host of special releases and travel retail specialty editions. 
 
“Brodir” translates from the Old Norse language as “Brother” and we think that is a pretty good name for a “finished” Whisky. And the name hints at the dual nature of this single malt's aging process. 
 
Laphroaig Brodir is first aged for ten years in ex-Bourbon casks. Now, a lot of Whiskies claim “Port Wood Finish,” but there are two types of Port. “Tawny Port” is a warm blonde color and is made from white wine—this is the most commonly used type to finish Whisky and imparts a raisiny, caramel-like character. Laphroaig Brodir is finished in Ruby Port casks, so it gets a hint of ripe berries. The combination of the peaty Larphoaig smoke, with the tart strawberry influence of the Ruby Port cask is spot on.

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).
Maker's Mark is Laphroaig's main source for barrels.
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.
90% of all Scotch Whiskies sold are Blends.
Single malt stands for around 10% of the Scotch market. This is a malt containing only one grain, legally required to be barley in Scotland, and made at a single distillery.

A blended Scotch is a combination of different malts from different distilleries. It is typically made from grain Whisky but does include malt Whisky to give it a more complex body.
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.
