In the making of Laphroaig, malted barley is dried over a peat fire. The smoke from the peat, gives Laphroaig its particularly rich flavour. Roll it around on your tongue. Release the pungent, earthy aroma of blue peat smoke, the sweet nuttiness of the barley, the delicate heathery perfume of Islay's streams.
