A visit to... Laphroaig


Laphroaig - one of the distilleries with the best tour (at least on Islay itself) and good range of whiskies which could be tried all the time at the bar.

As a "Friend of Laphroaig" I took the chance to visit my piece of land on the other side of the road and mark it with a (German and Swiss) flag. I also received the payment from Laphroaig, a miniature of the 10yo. Cask Strength... a nice dram for the way home to the Bowmore House as I wasn't driving on that day...
