Laphroaig 'Laffrodite' 2012 Cask Viking 9 Year Old / Privatfat

A teaspooned Laphroaig, bottled for Privatfat in collaboration with Cask Viking.

Teaspooning is process by which distilleries add a small amount of a different single malt so that private bottlers cannot use their name on the labels. This technically makes them blended malts, although the amount of the second whisky is negligible

Laphroaig is the largest of the three heavyweight Islay distilleries in Kildalton, out-stripping the production capacity of neighbours, Ardbeg and Lagavulin, by over 1 million litres per annum. Despite its traditional appearance, Laphroaig was always a forward-thinking distillery. It was bottled as a single malt as early as the 1920s, an unfashionable option at the time, especially for a peated whisky. They were also shrewd in capitalising on post-Prohibition America to add trademark sweetness to their spirit through the use of imported ex-bourbon casks, and hired Scotland’s first ever female distillery manager, Bessie Williamson, in 1954. Laphroaig is one of only a handful of distilleries in Scotland to still use in-house maltings, providing them with 20% of their annual requirements, and contributing to the distillery’s unique flavour profile.

Distilled in 2012 and bottled 9 years later.
