One thing is certain about Laphroaig single malt: no drinker is indifferent to it. Some are bewildered by its appeal, and others love its unapologetically full-on peaty, medicinal charms.

Located on the south coast of Islay, which opens into the North Atlantic, the combination of sea air and Islay peat brings divisive flavours of sea weed, iodine and strong peat smoke.
