Laphroaig Single Malt Whisky 10 year old 40%

Laphroaig Scotch Whisky.

Islay region. South shore district.

Lying just west of Lagavulin on the south shore. Alex & Donald Johnston started the Laphroaig distillery in 1815.

During 1836 the distillery became under the sole ownership of Donald Johnston. Unfortunately Donald  died after tumbling into a vat of part-processed whisky in 1847  (what a way to go)
His son Dugald was too young to take over so the distillery was temporarily leased to Walter Graham
