The following are varieties of Laphroaig single malt whiskey available in the United States: Laphroaig 10-Year-Old Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky The glass from which you drink Laphroaig whisky can vary depending on personal taste. However, the tumbler is a favorite due to its practicality.Donald bought the farm from his brother Alexander who emigrated to Australia. Donald only lived until 1847. Rumor has it that he drowned after falling into a vat of partially-made whisky. Ian Hunter, a nephew of Sandy Johnson, was the last Johnson to run the distillery. On his death in 1954, the distillery was left to one of his managers, Bessie Williamson, who retired in 1972.

The peat is burnt at a relatively low temperature ( a cold smoking process) and is responsible for the typical tarry notes of Laphroaig. The barley is then dried using hot air recycled from the still house. Mashing The distillery was founded in 1810 by brothers Donald and Alexander Johnston on what was originally a family-run farm in a small bay on the southernmost tip of Islay. Its unique flavour comes in part from its vicinity to the coast and the high moss content of its peat, which is processed in the distillery’s own floor maltings. Laphroaig was owned by members of the Johnston family until 1954. In 1847, co-founder Donald Johnston died in dramatic circumstances - after falling into a scalding kettle of burnt ale. For the next decade Walter Graham, manager of neighbouring distillery Lagavulin, ran the company. Laphroaig returned to Johnston family hands in 1857 when Donald’s son Dugald gained ownership. This distinctive blend is created from several different casks, including Oloroso Sherry Butts, white American oak, Pedro Ximenez seasoned hogsheads, Quarter casks, and first-fill bourbon casks.
